Indie Game Advocacy

In many interviews and speaking engagements, Hecker has lobbied heavily for the development of an independent games movement.

Lamenting the lack of innovation in gameplay, he has pushed for alternative markets and models for small-scale video game production. In 2002, with a few of his friends (largely Looking Glass Studios veterans), Hecker co-founded the successful Indie Game Jam.

In addition to directly leading to the creation of at least one commercial title, the Indie Game Jam inspired others to create their own local game jams worldwide, such as the similarly named Boston Game Jam and Toronto Game Jam .
