When I was at PAX East in Boston for Vlambeer earlier this year, I met Eitan Glinert of Firehose Games and Kelly Wallick. Kelly is the organisatorial mastermind behind logistical nightmares involving lots of indies. If you recall ever hearing Eitans’ name, he made a few nice things, is the only adult male I know who uses the word ‘balderdash’ and then became notorious for the following video about GlitchHiker, which I worked on and presented at the Experimental Gameplay Sessions at GDC ’12.
OK, so maybe he didn’t get notorious for it, but either way, they decided to drop by Amsterdam for a few days, so I met up with Dutch game/installation designer Marc De Vreede and set out to have some drinks with them in the city center. Was great seeing them again & I’m really looking forward to meeting them again in Seattle for PAX Prime.
