Tommy Preger has done it again! Just like last year he has written an AMAZING article on No More Sweden, the annual Swedish (nordic, really) independent game developer gathering. Apparently Super PLAY is being discontinued, so this is the very last issue of the rather experimental, indie-friendly magazine. I’m going to miss it, it really is a shame – but then it IS kind of awesome to be part of this legendary last issue! The cover is so pink it kind of hurts your eyes to look at it, the magazine itself is chock full of great articles and old commercials from -96 (I assume) and best of all – it contains EIGHT FULL PAGES on No More Sweden 2009!
Obviously I choose the part with most ME in it for the top image, but the article is really about the whole event; the competition, the games that were made and the people that attended.
Speaking of awesome things, here’s something that is CRAZY AWESOME! You Have To Burn The Rope was referenced in Double Fine’s Brütal Legend!
The game is referenced in a line of dialogue from the 2009 video game Brütal Legend, when the character Mangus explains the solution to a puzzle by yelling “You have to burn the rope!”, whereupon the character Eddie Riggs (voiced by Jack Black) declares incredulously “It can’t be that simple!” [Wikipedia]
I’m so very proud, that’s a huge deal to me! Big thanks for the heads-up, Olle and BlinkOk!
