Oof. Big week. Indie game party. Playtesting at Ubisoft (more on that next week). Finishing off my business e-course

This weekend will probably involve seeing Thor: The Dark World and maybe an Indie Game Date.

Link time!

Loving this looping animation contest.

The conversation on storytelling in games continues with Dr. Nerdlove (Harris O’Malley) & Mitch Dyer.

Black Milk, Insert Coin, and Living Dead were already starting to turn me around, but this was the nail in my legging hating coffin.

I’ve also wondered if unionization will solve employee abuses in the video game industry, although I don’t agree with all of the author’s assertions.

      My cats’ favourite bed is “sweatshirt Rick accidentally left on the sofa but the cats liked so much we never moved it and now it is so encrusted with cat hair that it can no longer return to sweatshirt shape.”

      Thank you! You don’t think it’s a little too game-centric?

    God I love that you blog about the Indie Game world. I get legitimately excited when I see you’ve posted (not that I don’t for others, but I love Indie games).

      Thank you, Erin. I also love the indie world which is why I post about it and turn up randomly at as many local events as possible– I mean, socialize…

    Have you found the indie course worthwhile?
    Did you end up seeing Thor, I went in with low expectations but found myself really enjoying it I’m glad there was a good dose of humour 🙂

      I’m actually really enjoying the indie business compass course. It’s not a very technical course, but it has good prompts to get you thinking about how to direct and grow your business and is relatively affordable.

      I liked Thor, although I did feel like there was a little too much going on and was disappointed Natalie Portman didn’t have more to do, but I did find it very entertaining.
