Pretty good year

For Hemisphere Games – and for me – 2009 was a whirlwind year. New Years’ day found me skiing and relaxing with good friends in Revelstoke, British Columbia. Osmos still lay in the hands of the IGF judges, quietly unknown to the world beyond a few friends and some very thorough IGF followers. I had […]

We <3 IndieCade

Last weekend was the festival and conference known as IndieCade. In previous years it piggybacked on top of a few other shows, including Siggraph and E3; but this was IndieCade’s first ever standalone festival. And what an amazing time it was. The location, a beautiful pocket around a hotel in Culver City, was warm and […]

Well, it’s been just over a month since we released Osmos, and what a ride it’s been so far! We just want to take a moment to thank everyone who’s gotten (and hopefully enjoyed!) the game, and in particular those who have helped spread the word — by mouth, email and blogs. We really appreciate […]
