Boston Festival of Indie Games 2013

leave a comment »



Monocle was at the Boston Festival of Indie Games (Boston FIG), held at Sat, 14 September 2013 at the MIT campus in Cambridge, MA, USA. It was a fantastic event, and I’d like to thank every one who came down to the Monocle booth at Booth D31!

The game was really well received, and the booth was never unoccupied, which was a really pleasant experience. We had people of all ages give the game a try, and it seemed to appeal to a large demographic of people. It was great to hear people who came up to personally talk about how much they enjoyed the game, and also very humbling. I think almost every one who came managed to get a souvenir, though the Monocle stickers ran out quicker than the rest.

I’ve been trying to catch up with reviews of the festival on various blogs and websites. So far, I’ve only managed to come across one that covered Monocle. The great thing is it is a really nice review, and I’m extremely grateful for the reviewer taking the time to write up her thoughts on the game. If you have the chance, check out the review “Monocle, Fun with Physics” by Rochelle “NinJaSistah” Hinds based at ElectricSistaHood on EGMNow.

Some of the most popular questions that were received at the festival was about whether Monocle was released yet, and how one could get their hands on it. I’m been pondering about these questions for a bit. There are certainly a lot more features that I plan to put into Monocle, and as of right now, even with 8 completed levels, I feel that it’s still a little rough around the ages to see anything beyond an informal alpha testing group. Perhaps a public alpha release is in order!
