That news is still sinking in. But there it is: Dyson is a finalist for the Seumas McNally Grand Prize. We’re really pleased, and personally I’m pretty daunted and mildly surprised! But it’s great to have Dyson acknowledged in this way, it’s an honour to be up there with the other finalists (I’ve played Blueberry Garden and it’s *awesome*). Good luck guys!
Rudolf and I were recently interviewed by Sarah from TunaSnax, who have also nabbed a finalist nomination for Excellence in Visual Art, for Cletus Clay. It was great fun, and now the interview has been put up on the Snax website for all to read VISITER LE LINK Thanks guys, and congratulations on the nomination! Looking forward to playing Cletus Clay at the IGF (finally - been waiting to play this for years now)!
Now this is very nice. Anthony Carboni and co. host a web show dedicated to reviewing and promoting indie games, and the show does it with gusto and a nice professional sheen. It is called BYTEJACKER and I have embedded the current episode at the top of this post.
They genuinely love games and review them fairly, in my opinion, so I decided to drop them a line about Dyson the other day. As it turned out they knew the game anyway and decided to include it in the current Monday episode. The Monday episode introduced three different free indie games, people can then go on an play them an vote for the one they like best on the Bytejacker blog. The THURSDAY show will then take the game with most votes and review it in more detail as the “Free indie of the week!”
Have ago at the three games yourself and pick the one you like best!
Oops! We messed up and the Linux README did not include the packages required to run the game. If you downloaded the Linux version and don’t know what packages to install, these should be the ones you need:
libmono-i18n (and perhaps other basic mono stuff)
Please let us know if you are still having trouble. Cheers!
