I was asked to write an article about my company for the IGDA Newsletter special edition on ARGs. I chose to write about why I’m “Going Indie for Meaningfulness and Money“. I thought I’d share it with you since many of you may be traveling down the same path. I also wanted to share with you a postscript. It is a quote from a colleague who I was chatting with in Skype:
Heart, art, and commerce can connect. In fact, that’s where the real gold is.
Great stuff, eh? The IGDA special issue has many articles by people, including some nuggets from Steve Peters and Maureen McHugh, like these tips for meaningful interaction:
* Unlock story content for everyone
* Interact with story characters
* Get information to provide to story characters to move the story along
