|The B.U.T.T.O.N. team (sans Nifflas, who lives up in Sweden). Yes, Nils’ baby is part of the crew!|
The finalists include three games from Denmark, which makes our tiny little home country the second most represented nation at the event!
Our nomination actually has a lot of history behind it. In 2008, we attended IndieCade (then in Seattle) to show our Dark Room Sex Game. It was there that we met Nils Deneken, a fellow København’er who was there showing his adventure game masterpiece, Rückblende. Since then, Nils has become a close collaborator, and an even closer friend. Two years later, it all comes full circle – Lau and I team up with Nils (and others!) to make a new game, and we get to show it at IndieCade. I mean, shit, I’m smiling just thinking about it.
This is what the indie scene is all about, folks. It is not about computer games in them of themselves, at least not primarily. For me, it’s all about the people playing them and making them. Game development is such a fantastic platform for meeting other people. We stand as living proof.

|The Dark Room Sex Game team and Nils, back at IndieCade 2008… and also on a boat?! What’s up with our fascination with boats?|
Are you headed to IndieCade too? Send us an email. We’d love to meet up!
