Cheats and Walkthroughs
To gamers, developers are like rock stars. We just can't help it. They seem larger than life creators of entertainment we love and connect with. Arguably, no one fits this role better than Brutal Legend creator and all-around interesting guy, Tim Schafer. The founder of Double Fine, Schafer has a reputation for bringing a comical edge to the projects he touches and also an attention to detail and quality that is unmistakable.
That's why at this year's IndieCade, right here in Los Angeles, he will be honored with the 2010 IndieCade Honorary Trailblazer Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Though it may sound like it was made up by Derek Zoolander, the 2010 IndieCade Honorary Trailblazer Award for Lifetime Achievement is real and is designed to "Recognize Pioneers of the Independent Game Development Community" and Schafer seems like just the right guy for the occasion.
It is a "Lifetime Achievement" award and to quote Schafer, "Holy cow. I had no idea I was so old. Is this because of the grey in my beard? Well, it's an honor and I'm happy that it's coming from a great organization like IndieCade."
This is the first time the IndieCade Honorary Trailblazer Award for Lifetime Achievement has been awarded and IndieCade's Stephanie Barish said, "We are thrilled to present Tim with our first Trailblazer Award,” said Stephanie Barish of IndieCade. “Tim and his games embody the risk-taking, boundary pushing spirit at the heart of the independent gaming community, and he is a true role model to legions of up-and-coming game makers."
We couldn't agree more. Congratulations, Mr. Schafer!
