Yayy hi!! I’m Badru, also an admin + label member. Excited to be here!
niceee hi!! i’m pol hello, i’m also a label member ❀❀❀
Hi, I’m Peter, I am a indie dev and 3D artist. I’m making Remote Orbit.
Nice to meet you! I like what you folks are doing here. Well done!
ahh thanks!! Remote Orbit looks great! I hadn’t seen it before now but it looks like a ton of work for one person, executed at an incredible level of craft. Excited to see more about it.
Thank you! It’s been a long journey but a happy one.
hi hello every1!! i’m jake grizzly pierce (they/them), but ya’ll can call me grizz ︎
i’m 1/2 of the team on Rainstorm EP and a member of IWG, excited to congregate here :~)
hi!! I’m eleanor, hopeful game maker and former writing freelancer who found herself tossed around from site to site in the ever-evolving nightmare of coverage and exposure. I’ve been a fan of IWG since I was afforded the opportunity to review Eidolon for a site I was writing for when it released and watched as IWG shifted from a games studio into a much bigger Idea. I’m grateful that it has grown, rather than suffocated under the industry as many others I covered unfortunately have.
Welcome Eleanor! It’s veey flattering to hear you have been following and rooting for us!
Hi Eleanor!! Welcome! It’s so nice to see people who’ve been around since the beginning!
Excited to build IWG up into something rad and excited you’re here for it!
haha hi, im tuckie, i made an account a few days ago and didnt say anything because this thread got sort of old! i also make games so im here from some people i know (mostly jake, hi). i think its really cool to see a forum open around this stuff; twitter is honestly too friendcircle-oriented so it’ll be cool to explore meeting folks : )
Hi tuckie!! I think I might have met you at XOXO? Were you there showing a pixel JRPG thingy? I was looking like super nondescript and not really advertising myself much so you prob don’t remember me but hi!!
wait i think i do remember that!! i think we brought up one of jakes projects too or something haha. there were def a lot of nondescript folks there though; someone tried my game, didnt say anything about it or talk to me but handed me a card and they were from google?!? they just announced this years lineup - are you gonna try to go again?
Yes I’m entered in the lottery! I loved the vibe of XOXO, like everyone was just there to talk about art and creativity and it felt so cozy and friendly and not at all like a Professional Networking Event, which is what that stuff is usually like. I loved going on a hike with people beforehand, and just talking with random strangers about their weird internet art!! Also that it was like majority not games people. What a relief lol. Maybe see you there!!
Hi!! I’m Walden (he/they) and I interviewed IWG a few years ago about Eidolon for an old website. I’m a college student now (environmental science) and I’m working on a few zines to pass the time.
Yay! Welcome, Walden!!!
