holiday season sale + ipad game of the year + interview!

Mittwoch, Dezember 22nd, 2010

indie sale! along with a bunch of fellow indies, osmos is part of two bundles this holiday season! we are fortunate and humbled to be part of the humble indie bundle #2, which – after one week – has sold 183000 copies (!). osmos is also included in the indie iphone holiday sale, which started yesterday and runs until december 31. in both cases, large parts of the proceedings will be donated to child’s play charity. i think that these bundles contain some of the best independently developed games of the past years, and since they are almost going for free (or for charity, your pick), what are you waiting for?

ipad game of the year!

to our great surprise and utter delight, osmos was selected by apple as their ipad game of the year! i guess that makes osmos the „best ipad game of all time“ for now? right? :) soooo exciting! thanks to all you people out there who love and continue to play the game!

another castle and last but not least, i was interviewed by charles pratt for the NYU game center podcast another castle. they also fed me beer, so my talking gets more incoherent as time passes. it was great fun! if you are not familiar with this podcast series, may i suggest that you check it out right now? there’s an amazing line-up of great game designers (many of which i consider mentors and ongoing inspiration) and i am, again, humbled to be part of this.

what a year. happy holidays you all! … and now back to igf judging…
