What a fun week, indie developers are elusive little suckers, so we tried to collect-em-all in photos. Some of them got away. Here are the ones that didn’t.
IGF 2008, Year of the Monocle. Edmund McMillen‘s unmistakable silhouette looks on.
Petri Purho has strong eye socket muscles, 2D Kyle is a cardboard cutout of the photo above, Kyle Gray wears the latest velociraptor fashion, and Ron made a bunch of limited edition 2D buttons, two of which make a stunning cameo here
This is the computer we bought to demo our game on the IGF floor. One of the 2D Boys dropped it on the sidewalk before we got there. It still worked. Probably because windows vista is so stable. Now available on craigslist! Comes with free demo of world of goo and a sticky mouse!
The Kyles meet Professor Layton
Then one day, Ron and Noopur turned blue
Dylan Fitterer is really tall
We got CHAI from this guy every day. He laughed at us when we said we were game developers.
Everyone in this picture is named kyle how can we tell them apart! The Kyle Pulver in the middle is the Kyle who made BONESAW
Jen Smith and Steve Swink‘s innovation in footwear
Renaud Bedard, the only Fez developer who doesn’t wear a Fez. Speaks french reeally fast. Writes code even faster.
Tommy “Goo!”Refenes, and the 2D Boys. Where’s Edmund?
Joakim uses his imagination.
Sean Chan and Cactus, gamemaker gods. Kyle, lost
Dude we totally won stuff!!!! Ron and Kyle pretend to not be terrified. Technical Excellence!!! Design Innovation!! We’re on tv
Ron says something genuine and articulate
Kyle gives a horrible speech. Wait, I think there’s a monocle in my pocket
It only stays in if you press really hard
Jon Mak sucks out Kyle Gray’s brain. Kyle Gray doesn’t mind.
Jesse Schell plays with Kyle Gray’s UNANNOUNCED: THE GAME!! We all had a lot of martinis and buttons on the DS are really small.
Hammerfall!! Sorry it’s blurry, I was dizzy from swinging rocks
Darren Koepp of Iron Dukes. Best web game chillaxes on the right. I totally want that shirt
Lukas Macura of Gumboy Tournament. We smile because we know games about gooey balls are where the future’s at. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Ray Kurzweil.
Experimental boys re-unite!!! Matt Kucic, Kyle Gray, Kyle Gabler, and Shalin Shodhan drops in har har ha :.( ok that’s it.
Thanks to Robert Ramirez for the pictures that look good, thanks to drunk party goers for the rest. This was fun, I love you guys. Kyle
