Over 1,500 games, 54 millions active user accounts and sales renown to sell countless copies of games that will probably never be played. This is the place a lot of indies hope their game will go to be mindlessly grabbed by some cheap bastards like me.
Live or die, when it’s really needed
I wish I had [...]
I don’t mean to piss on Double Fine’s parade but their incredible experience on Kickstarter in the last 24 hours doesn’t mean a whole lot to most of us. For most of us tomorrow will be the same.
Is you name on Wikipedia? Did you released a critically acclaimed game? Did you tape a video with Cookie [...]

So yeah Blizzard have backed down. Ask me what I fear most. Almost total anonymity or having your name next to the things you are saying? Honestly I fear much more anonymity.
In the last few days we have seen a part of the web going crazy about a company announcing in advance how it plans [...]
You know there some stuff that turns my stomach in weird ways. One of them is when I read “Quit your day job and make Facebook games“.
