This year at Indiecade, Tim Schafer was honored with the new Trailblazer Award, which is given out to people who have paved the way for others with creativity and vision in the realm of independent game development. Schafer's work on titles like The Secret of Monkey Island, Full ThrottleGrim Fandango, and Psychonauts, among others, helped him net this award, and let's face it, who else would accept an award and use the phrase "tainted teat of the publisher?"

There was no more fitting person to present this award than Ron Gilbert, who gave Tim his start at LucasArts nearly 20 years ago. Check out Tim's acceptance speech in the above video from Indiecade, and listen to what words of wisdom he has about independent game development. We love how it closes it out by encouraging everyone to buy Costume Quest. Congratulations, Tim. Seriously.
