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 there, my name is Kyle, and I'm a kid disguised as a grown up. I'm making video games and living the indie game developer life in Tempe, Arizona. 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!
