@AshBlueWD yeah I stayed up all night last night pretty much. Being super tired seems to keep my adrenaline down. (Today)

@Ryubel that's pretty much what I did I had to go into a deep meditation and get advice from my braver past life (Today)

@AshBlueWD can you only sleep on plain planes (Today)

@MANvsGAME YEEAH t.co/MivSVQ7I3J (Today)

@MANvsGAME YO are you gonna be at PAX? :o (Today)

@raiganburns I probably wont hit actual sleep, just spaced out half sleep that might keep me from getting all freaked out (Today)

@raiganburns hmm yeah even with frequent flying I still have trouble. people sitting next to me ask if its my first time flying haha (Today)

@raiganburns thanks! right now I'm employing my "stay up all night so maybe I will sleep through the flight" technique... (Today)

@konjak the most disorienting scene transition in video game history (Today)

@LeakyPeeButt hmm... maybe you're right~ (Today)

@thenoumenon oof that is rough <3 I send many hugs (Today)

@TommyRefenes ; _ ; (Today)

@sch00f well poop (Today)

@CliftonB YES I cant wait to be at PAX... but ugh the night before my flight is always the worst. (Today)

@konjak shakey arms... the sign of a true warrior. don't worry my friend. some day you will be able to carry a medium-large package. (Today)

One time I tried playing Paper Mario on a flight. I guess it helped a little? The next time I played Paper Mario I had a panic attack though (Today)

@CliftonB AHHHH they already give me enough trouble for being one of those "opt out" people (Today)

@konjak this isnt the time to try to impress me with your buffness (Today)

@gritfish whoa that sounds pretty trippy. I don't know if it would be enough to overcome my awareness that I'm in an airborne plane though.. (Today)

@SergeantIndie I think that fear is tied into the flying fear though ;_; (Today)

GDC2011: Independence Day

GDC2011: Independence Day

Normally I would probably start posting about Game Developers Conference as soon as I got home from it, but this time is a little bit different. This year I only have 2 whole days of being home in my room before I have to fly out to the east coast for PAX East, so the GDC recap posts will be pretty slow. (I hope that you didn't already forget that Snapshot is sharing a big booth there for the Boston Indie Showcase.)

The first highlight of GDC I will be sharing is going to be probably the best one of them all. This year I gave a 5 minute micro-talk (which I will probably post about later) which somehow lead to me being back on stage in front of the microphone talking about things, doing impressions, and finally executing the Independence Day speech with my dear friend Tommy Refenes.

This magical moment was caught almost entirely on film by the people in the audience, so check it out:


Or look at a a vimeo version.

Hi! My name's Kyle, and I make video games most of the time in Denver, Colorado. Here you will find my thoughts, games, websites, doodles, and other stuff like that. I worked on Snapshot, Offspring Fling, and a whole bunch of other games. I also created and maintain Otter, a 2d game making framework. If you want to get a hold of me use the form on the bottom of the page, leave a comment, or just tweet at me. I try to post three times a week. Thanks for stoppin' by! You're the coolest.

Do you want to make a Let's Play of one of my games, or a just a video featuring footage of my games? You have my full permission to do so! Even if you are monetizing your videos, you still have my full permission to use any footage from any of my games. Go for it!
