AH & Gish IGF Nominees! Dec. 10th, 2004 @ 02:01 PM Reply

Alien Hominid and GISH have both been nominated for the 2005 Independent Games Festival awards ceremony!

Two of the ten finalists have come from the Newgrounds community! Not too shabby, eh?

Edmund and I will both be at the festival this March! Fans in the San Francisco area can come out to see us and play the games!

Learn more about it at the IGF website!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Cash or a trophy?

coolies,congrats to both of you =)
i played through gish hence i wrote a review about it on gotoandplay.it ,i can just suggest anyone whos missed it to get it now,it rocks badly =D
i also ordered ah a week before it was released,sadly it still wasn´t sent to me =( (didn´t order from the ah store hence its not sending abroad,instead i ordered from an ebay store and that told me they are out of stock because of too many preorders,i guess that´s a good thing..somehow.. ;))

Heh, what are you, surprised? Alien Hominid is a pretty big accomplishment for an independent game.

Congrats to both of you guys. I have both games, both are awesome!

I haven't had much time to play AH yet, but I've gotten through a few levels. I've been meaning to send you some comments, you deserve feedback.

The best to you and Ed at the Ceremony, hope you bring back some awards.

Awesome. Can't wait to bust out AH on Christmas. I would have bought it sooner but people were looking for gift ideas and there isn't much I want.

Threads like these are great for spotting morons in the NG community. Just look for people who spell congratulations with a d :P

A San Francisco treat?
I'm sure the line will be long in San Fran.

I'm such a bitch. :)

Congratulations Tom, Dan, Will & the other guy who made Gish.
Hope you have a great time.

Good job.


I'm your average Afro-American fetus. For example: I enjoy basketball, I'm rather good when I play too, but I'm much too busy scratching my horrific cracked skin these days.

AH Budget: $1,300,000
Gish Budget: $5000

although the Gish adventure mode is very simply and easily completed, the versus mode makes up for that.
hurray for Gish, I hope it wins.
sorry tom : )

It should be no surprise, really. =]
