Indie Custom Magic Cube

Indie Custom Magic Cube
Last year before GDC I had a small part in creating a completely custom set for Magic: The Gathering based on the indie game development scene. The full set ended up being 360 cards total, and I'm responsible for about 45 of those cards! I even made it into a couple of cards myself, with Kyle Pulver, Game Jammer, and Rapid Prototyping. My cards were the ones about Source Control, Multimedia Fusion, Lyle in Cube Sector, and a couple of references to Bonesaw, Snapshot, and Offspring Fling.

Update: The indie cube has been taken down. I suggest reading this to find out more.

Here's just a small sample of some of my favorite cards, you can check out the full visual spoiler to see the rest.

And now a card that I hate with all of my being because Edmund used it on me every game and kept stealing my best creatures from my hand:

Blue is so annoying.

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.
