Autumn of Indie Game Markets
Ah, the fall. A time to reap what has been sown and contemplate the cycles of the seasons. If you are a smaller game developer, you’ve likely noticed some cyclical shifts in how we make games. Games are looking nicer than ever, don’t they? That quality bar ...

Wow. Life is wonderful.

Another round of "Does anyone know who the heck these people are?" If you can vouch for them, I'll let 'em in. If not, they will be sacrificed to my sieve-like memory.

No prototyping meetup due to its regularly scheduled slot hitting smack dab in the middle of Christmas Day.

I am around throughout the holidays so if anyone wants to catch a year end coffee, drop me a line. 2016, eh?

May 2017 involve fluffy pandasaurus rides for us all.

It is happening. Bring a prototype. Imagine...

You are an oyster. That poops iridescent layers of calcium carbonate. Our games may look like specks of dirt. But with enough oyster goo, they can becomes beautiful pearls.

Valve? No. Bivalve.
