My IGF List

The IGF List is now live, as you all have heard. I have my list, but my list is a little different. My list isn't who I think will make the final cut or win- it's my list of which entrants I worked with in some fashion. Some of these games I fully represented, some I only did a press release for, a couple I merely had a formal discussion and gave formal advice to (for free, that's part of my company motto, remember?)

So here goes!

Astro Battle 2 Lava Lord Games
Build a custom space ship and fight against other players in online battles.
(Ages ago I helped on Astro Battle 1)

Aveyond Amaranth Games
Fight monsters and explore a medieval world. Aveyond is packed with more than 60 quests, tons of places to explore, and over 40 hours of game play.
(Fully Represented, go Amanda!)

Bugs of War NinjaBee
Bugs of War is a fast playing, accessible, tactics strategy game. Gameplay is deep enough to be satisfying to established fans of the tactics genre, but friendly enough to appeal to more casual gamers as well.
(Seeing as I represented every other NinjaBee title, I will PROBABLY work with this one as well)

Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! Mousechief Co.
Level-up a band of teen thrill-seekers for daring adventures in 1920s' USA. Scour their intolerant hometown with brazen hi-jinx. Conquer opposition with a variety of quick games: Taunt, Flirt, Fib, Expose, and Gambit. Acquire dapper dates. Use. Discard. Repeat. Win other handy items. Learn scandalous secrets. Foil a dastardly plot.
(Actually I haven't worked with this title yet, but I hope Keith will at least have me do the press release, I think I did one for The Witch's Yarn.)

Eets: Hunger. It's emotional. Klei Entertainment Inc.
Eets is a whacky and fun puzzle game that breaks the mold of the boring puzzle games of yesteryear. With vibrant graphics and gameplay reminiscent to Lemmings and The Incredible Machine, it turns a puzzle game into orchestrated action, at least when things go according to plan. Experience over a hundred puzzles included in the game, and plenty more created by our budding community!
(Fully Represented: Jamie is not as pretty as Amanda, but the game sure is.)

Epoch Star Battleline Games LLC.
Prepare yourself for an epic space adventure. Blast apart enemy ships in real-time combat at the helm of your own customizable warship. Complete missions to gain wealth and experience as you explore a distant galaxy filled with exotic alien races to save the universe from the ominous Epoch Star.
(Advice given)

Kudos Positech Computing Ltd
Kudos is a turn-based 'life-simulation' where you control your character from age twenty to thirty, and see if you can turn their life around. You control each day of their life deciding who to socialize with, where to work, and how they relax in their free time.
(Press Release)

Minions of Mirth Prairie Games, Inc.
Minions of Mirth is a no-monthly-fee MMORPG! Persistent world with 14 diverse regions, hundreds of quests, thousands of monsters, day/night cycles, and realistic weather. 12 unique races and 16 classes for thousands of playable combinations. Single player, epic battles, player guilds, two hour original score, and more!
(Fully Represented, best of luck Lara!)

New Star Soccer 3 New Star Games
New Star Soccer 3 is the football career game that lets YOU be the star player. Defender, midfielder or attacker, the choice is yours, just make sure you keep the boss, fans and everyone else happy on your rise to football stardom!
(Press Release)

Pursuit of Power Precision Games, LLC
Pursuit of Power is a real-time strategy game based in a fantasy setting. You assume the role of a leader with powerful abilities that play a decisive role during battles. Your main goal is to defeat all enemy portals and troops.
(Press Release)

Potion Motion Flashbang Studios, LLC
Help Kira the Witch stir up some trouble in this dazzling puzzle game! Rotate pieces around the board to match up colors, create combos, unlock special moves, and buy powerups! The beautiful, eye-catching graphics, relaxing orchestral soundtrack, and innovative rotate gameplay add up to a recipe for fun!
(While i haven't worked with Potion Motion, I did help bring Glow Worm to retail. Buy it now at Comp USA and other fine retailers!)

Starchon Freelance Games
Starchon is a 360 degree scrolling space action shooter with real-time strategy elements. You can't directly decide where to place your computer controlled support units or which sectors to they will attack. However, you have a lot of indirect influence over the outcome of the game. The game is real-time, so if you take to long in a sector, you will probably be overrun by the enemies in the adjacent sectors.
(Advice given)

Stunt Bike Island ForgeFX
Stunt Bike Island is a real-time 3D bike game with spectacular stunts and a tropical twist! Get away to the islands and launch yourself into the trade winds while pulling backflips, yahoos, deathboxes, tail whips and a boat-load of other insane stunts. Collect speed-boosts and other power-ups while you jump over trees, ponds, boulders, and mountains.
(I just started working with ForgeFX on a variety of potential business ventures. We'll see if that goes anywhere!)

Virtual Villagers: A New Home Last Day of Work
Care for and nurture a tribe of little villagers by teaching them the basics of survival. They need to become farmers, builders, scientists, parents and make decisions about unpredictable ‘island events’! Guide their day-to-day lives and help them explore their new island home and the secrets it holds.
(Press Release)

Overall, not a bad list if I do say so myself.

Best of luck to everyone who worked with me and a little less to anyone who didn't :)

PS: I did buy Andy lunch once, does that count as working with Venture Arctic? I'll do it again if so :)
