The world changed yesterday.
Not really. But it did get a little bit more rectangular. I went to the IGDA Midlands meetup and did a little presentation about the game, why I think it took off in the way it did, and the ‘next steps’.
I also made a very ill advised joke about Terminator slash fiction.
The presentation itself focused on the 6 key things I think got people playing Thomas Was Alone. I’m going to turn it into a mammoth blog post at some point, and it looks like I’ll be delivering the same stuff at a couple of other things too (watch this space :D)
I got to meet loads of awesome indie developers, either again or for the first time – and continued to fawn over Mode 7 and their stunning Frozen Synapse.
All in all, a great evening. Cheap JD and cokes too.
