Bloody hell people are quick these days...

Some nice words from Indiegamer blog and TigSource:
http://www.indiegames.com/blog/2008/07/indie_game_pick_the_spirit_eng.html
http://tigsource.com/articles/2008/07/31/the-spirit-engine-2

Two to start us off before even a day is up. Any more eagle eyed reporters out there?

TimW dropped on the release post like some sort of ninja spider hiding in the rafters. Very Happy
Derek's write-up is really positive. I'm glad that he likes the game so far, and any compliments coming from him mean a lot!

Both of these guys are doing a great service to independent developers and players alike. I use up more than my fair share of their bandwidth checking the news each day.

Natomic gave a little plug on facebook... still not sure whats going on with them, but we shall see.

I sent an email to Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw, it would be good if he took notice as he is a fan of Indie Games.

Not yet, I foolishly sent it on the Wednesday, the same day Zero Punctuation comes out. So he probably has to check all that mail first. Apparantly he gets a lot of mail from fullyramblomatic.com but tries to reply to most of it. He should take an interest being an Indie Developer himself.
I made a frontpage post on Newgrounds, Im not sure how many veiws it got, but there was one reply who said he'd check it out Smile
I figure the game will spread primarily through word of mouth.

Yahtzee must receive a staggering amount of mail, I suspect most of it from angry fans responding to his reviews. Confused

Thanks for the newgrounds post Lachlan!

Derek Yu namedrops TSE2 in IGN Insider Interview:
http://www.bit-blot.com/forum/index.php?topic=1213.0

IGN: What are some games you're playing right now? What do you think of it/them?

...The indie game I'm playing right now is The Spirit Engine 2...
