Title: Hi

Hi there, I have been lurking for a while.

I played The Path and The Graveyard some years ago and liked them. But I didn't know there was a whole philosophy behind it until I found this site. All I can say is that the notgames idea has the potential to revolutionize the game industry. If only it was better known among developers... Not to be immodest, but I have some ideas for how to raise your profile which I will expand on shortly :)

I am currently dabbling with Unity and hope to be able to publish something, someday. We'll see ;)

Welcome :)

I'm guessing many developers have heard of it; it's just that most of them either think its crazy/dumb/wrong or aren't interested in participating.

Notgames is not exactly the philosophy behind those games. But rather an idea that we are developing collectively through works like the ones you mentioned, and others. As a negating term, our search is for what videogames can be if not games. And more practically how to make them.

And other words, welcome to this research adventure!
