Of course, it could not have been done without the help of a lot of friends and wonderful people. From crashing on the lounge room floor, to lifts around town, equipment lending and helping on the stand, the success of such an event is the product of many factors not seen on the showroom floor. You all know who you are and I look forward to catching up with you all again sometime soon.
And a massive shout out to Paul Grant of Eyelid Kid
, who after showing him the game, was generous enough to provide an (at the time) unreleased track off his new album Hometown to use within the game. It became the showcase track and still gets huge smiles whenever it gets played in the game.
The final thanks go to my brother Rhys Votano, who was responsible for the idea and execution of the entire documentary project.
I hope this inspires other indie game developers to take the same kind of big risk themselves and take their games to some of the great gaming festivals around the world. While it may be a financial strain, the amazing story that will come from it will far outweigh the costs involved.
