Our first Boston FIG experience

On Saturday, September 13th, Anthony and I exhibited at the Boston Festival of Indie Games (Boston FIG for short). We had a great time! Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures at all, because we had a table large enough to run two games of RESISTOR_ simultaneously, and we were almost always running two games. It was exhausting, but really fun! We saw so many people we knew – and I mean beyond our Philly buddies we went up there with, who we love hanging out with no matter what state we’re in.

We hung out with Isaac Shalev of Kind Fortress, who was showing his awesome game, Chronosphere. His game recently had a successful Kickstarter, but if you missed it, you can still pre-order it! We also got to see our friend Don Mitchell of Eye4Games who made the fantastic game of wizard tennis, Alakaslam! And we spent as much time as possible with Frank Washburn of Suppressive Fire, whose game Blood Alloy is currently on Steam Greenlight (vote for it!). We made some new friends as well, including Eli Kosminsky, head of the Game Makers Guild, and Meg McGinley of Pack the Pack.

It was a wonderful weekend, and I hope we return next year to exhibit again!

    Tell Aaron Chapin his pillow arrangement is a cross between Japanese flower arrangement and stubby fortress from meomedievalist legend.
