The IGF Pirate Kart

Earlier today Bentosmile wondered aloud on twitter: “Why is there no Pirate Kart for IGF?“. Great question! I think that’s a great idea. And as it turns out, so do a lot of other people.

The IGF often celebrates these massive, polished indie games that compete with the big triple A titles on consoles – and that’s very cool, but to me that’s only a very small part of what’s exciting about indie games.

The pirate kart represents a different side of indie games, one that I think is far more interesting – and one that’s maybe not so easily represented in the IGF. That’s why I’d love to see a pirate kart enter the festival. Not as a protest, but with complete sincerity.

So, I’m putting a bunch of my KOTM and jam games forward for this. You should too!

    Yes! It’s all slightly cheeky fun! 😀 (Gonna stick some of my TIGJam games and things towards it.)

    I’ve sent in 2 of my Ludum Dare games, “CondomCorps” and “FuhFuhFire.”

    Preach it, Terry!
