Title: Hi, this is Adrian of The Astronauts
Post by: AdrianChm on February 28, 2013, 05:26:39 pm
Dear Cthulhu, it took me a bit to finally say hi. I hope it is really like they say: better later than never.

I owe a lot to the notgames idea and people exploring it. The game we're making is a mix of old and new, and even though it does feature elements of the "old school" design, it is also heavily influenced by the work of some of the guys on this very forum. So thank you for that.

You can see my thought on game design (and what notgames have done to me) via this tag: http://www.theastronauts.com/category/game-design/ (http://www.theastronauts.com/category/game-design/)

...but I think what might be of special interest to you are these, listed in chronological order:

Welcome aboard!

You must have more mainstream industry connections than others here. To what degree do you think the industry is receptive to notgames thinking?
