Time has wrapped around, concluding my first year going to game developer conferences and festivals. My first, and the Choosatron’s, was Fantastic Arcade. I didn’t know anybody, and had a game that was by its very nature an outsider. That didn’t stop everyone from being incredibly welcoming, and it remains my favorite festival experience. I remember meeting Rami Ismail for the first time, and despite not knowing anything about him or his work, he was the most impressive person I’d met in a long time. After I got home I realized that I wasn’t alone in thinking this, and decided it was going to be a good year. Enough reminiscing!
It’s a special day when a project that has taken over my life for the better part of the last couple years has let up enough to allow me to ‘play’ again with my game design. My work on Dialatron is evidence of this, and now allowing myself to make something for the Fantastic Arcade game jam Barfcade! You can play it online now, right here -> Polite Dinner Extreme
