Given the state of my nerves at the moment, I’d say that the big day has finally arrived. But for the uninitiated:
I think that anyone with an interest or a stake in the future of independent games should watch the awards. Also, anyone dissatisfied with the selection of games at retail stores. Or anyone who suspects that video games have an insane amount of potential as a medium, if only someone could figure out how to tap into that. This awards show is for you.
For my part, I’ll be the one on stage handing out awards to people far more talented than me. I’m co-hosting the awards with Kyle Gabler, who designed World of Goo. I haven’t made my World of Goo yet. But together, we did write a bunch of lame jokes that we hope somebody laughs at.
See you all tonight!
