We just couldn’t stay away! A lot of you noticed IGG season (Oct/Nov) came and went without a marathon – first off, sorry about that! Life complicates things, and some new challenges made our normal event infeasible this year. We wanted to do at least a little something for all you wonderful people, though, which is why I’m happy to announce that this weekend (December 10th and 11th; stream starts at 10AM Pacific on Saturday) we’re gonna do something a little different: Indie Games for Good Mini[iggmarathon.com]!
As many of you know, IGG’s a heckuva production; lots of moving parts, months of dedicated prep from dozens of people, and a ton of involvement from awesome devs. IGG Mini aims to be a little simpler – The same wacky crew, the same rad games (and lots of great new ones), but a more compact format. What this means is that we won’t have all the interviews and crazy amounts of physical prizes, and our classic “keep going until donations stop” structure won’t be in place; that’ll all make its return next year with a proper event.
We’re really excited to bring you guys another stream this year, and are hoping to make a fun and slightly more relaxed show as we head into the insanity that is the Holiday Season. We need your help in making this thing a success! Help us get the word out! RTs and Reblogs help a lot, as do general word of mouth. Know somebody who enjoys games and is looking for cool new games to try out? How about somebody who’s looking to make some holiday donations to charity, and would appreciate being able to stretch their dollars? Let ‘em know! And most of all, we look forward to seeing y'all in chat this weekend. It should be a blast, and it can’t happen without you!
