I just wanted to drop in and give a big thank you to everyone who voted. Of course I should also say THANK YOU to everyone who voted for Gathering Sky this year, as I was happily surprised on Thursday evening, but it’s really important to simply take part in the voting.
1) Developers notice! When some mobile developers (big studio) that I work with heard that PopCap won a bunch of audio awards, they were a lot more eager to spring for middleware licenses and live musicians this year! So a GANG award actually means an awful lot to game developers, big or small. I order extra certificates and trophies to send to the teams I work with. It really does send a strong message.
2) Audio people notice! I had a LOT of folks tell me that they were now going to have to play Gathering Sky. And if you’re an indie, this helps your dev team as well…in addition to helping your career.
It’s very easy to get cynical and think “I’ll never win against a big studio title etc…” but my little game did just that. 4 people made the game with no marketing, pr or advertising. It can be done. But it wouldn’t have happened if a lot of you didn’t vote.
So again, thanks for your support!
