A quick plug for an awesome event: Back at the beginning of 2012, some friends of mine from Boston Indies decided to throw a free convention dedicated solely to independent video games. Last fall their plans came to fruition in the first ever Boston Festival of Indies Games, which was an amazing success—and they’re bringing it back for 2013! If you’re into video games and can be in Boston on the 14th, you should definitely drop by.
(While I’ve had nothing to do with the planning or organization of Boston FIG—a host of energetic, dedicated volunteers deserve all the credit for that!—I did help out last year by designing their logo, which lives on today in a number of awesome treatments. Long live League Gothic; long live fig leaves!)
