The B-FIG

The Boston Festival of Indie Games was amazing. I manned the table for Nika, which saw constant play and received a very positive reaction overall. I didn’t get to see much of our Crystal Brawl demo, but it was apparently drawing crowds all day. For both games, people were asking “How do I buy?”

If you’re one of those people, you can send me an e-mail to get on my unofficial Nika mailing list. We may start a more formal one if there’s enough demand. Otherwise, follow the Studio Mercato Twitter and Facebook pagefor updates.

Also, I had 2 whole interviews! One was live on NPR’s Beyond the Horizon (WBUR), another was for the Guys Games & Beer podcast. The podcast should be up soon, and the NPR interview will be replaying over the next week and may be available later online. Got to plug Nika and Studio Mercato on the airwaves for the first time – fun stuff!

Back to work now, though – my schoolwork awaits.

Studio Mercato

At last! Studio Mercato, beloved NYC developer collective and indie label which I helped found, has a true internet home. Inspect it with great fervor!

Also, if you happen to be in Boston this weekend, come to the Boston Festival of Indie Games at MIT! I’ll most likely be manning the Nika table all day myself, but we’re also showing Crystal Brawl.

Otherwise, I’ve mostly been occupied with being a newly minted grad student at the NYU Game Center. My favorite moment so far came on the first day of class, and went something like…

Me: “Man, it feels like I’m, like, at Hogwarts.”

Misha (friend, colleague; mishearing): “Did you say, ‘It feels like I’m back at Hogwarts?’ ”

That… that was it. Um, it was funny at the time. I should probably go to sleep now. Until later, internet!
