You get a cash prize at IGF. Me and Edmund wanted to get a working demo of Cereus Peashy into IGF but couldn't meet the deadline :(

Anyway, I'm happy that 2 awesome games that were both made by friends of mine are in the 10 nominees!

YAY

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

I wonder what the others were...

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!

What about Dan?

I hope you one of you win and I hope another AH is coming out.

Before NG was cool? That was before it was founded :P

"What about Dan?" -- He already replied to this thread telling he'd be there.

Good luck to you people. I'm sure either game will win :P
Now I'm going to sit and wait for the PAL version of AH ^_^

Heh, yeah. That festival looks like a fucking joke — its main sponsor (well, 'gold sponsor') is Microsoft of all companies. What the hell does 'independent' mean these days? Apparently it is anyone who isn't published by a member of the ESA or ELSPA. Wow.

I've always thought about getting gish, and if it got nominated like alien hominid (which i already know is great), i may have to really think about getting it.

you're right. you don't call it "independant". you call it "independent". we funded the game development ourselves. you can't get any more independent than that.

I knew something like this would happen, seeing as AH is a very fine and polished game.

Learn more about it at the IGF website!

How many copies has Alien HOminid Sold... I have boughten three copies... 1 for me, 1 that I am going to mail to newgrounds HQ (to get autographed) which will never be removed from the case, and then I bought one for my girlfriend for Christmas.

I beat alien hominid last night, after playing it for 10 hours straight.

DAN PALADIN. The best (and arguably the most successful) artist on the site by far.

Well, don't misunderstand what I was saying — I'm against that so-called festival of independent developers because it doesn't seem to have a base of peers (that is, what the hell is M$ doing there).

People in the music industry call independent bands who collaborate with the big labels sell-outs. I don't see how that term wouldn't be appropriate for the people who organised this thing.

Power to Gish and Alien Hominid, they are pretty 'independent' from what I've seen. Tom, you, et al. have developed this without any corporate imperative.
