Graduated from Tufts University in Boston with an MA in Economics. I moved back to Delaware and did the 9-5 thing for 4 years or so while I worked on some gaming ventures. In 2010, I proved that I learned nothing from University and became an independent Entrepreneur. I've been an entrepreneur for over 5 years now with an ever growing list of ideas and web properties, most notably, IndieGameStand.com.
I found myself looking back at how the indie game space has changed since I first discovered it. I’ve been involved with indie games for almost ten years—first as a wannabe developer, then as an amateur journalist, and finally as an entrepreneur.
It upset me that my fairwell letter to IGM would potentially be lost with the recent closure of IndieStatik so I wanted to preserve it here. I was upset with what happened with IGM after I let it go and wanted to have a final say on what IGM meant to me.
Games are incredibly undervalued compared to other entertainment that people enjoy. Why is such a technologically capable industry selling an hour of entertainment for less than a quarter when it used to sell minutes at an arcade for that same price?
The title may be a little over the top, but it stems from some of the real struggles of my life over the past 4 years. I think the crux of this talk is really about how work and technology can intrude into our lives in a detrimental way.
