Ste Pickford

There was an absolutely stunning response the comic strip I posted a few weeks back about my life as an indie game developer. It's the most popular blog post we've ever had on this site, by a factor of about 10, and I was genuinely surprised by the number of other devs (and non-game creative types) who got in touch to say they experience exactly the same thing.

Surprising to me as I almost didn't publish the strip on the blog as if felt a bit too personal.

Believe it or not, I also had a few requests from people who wanted prints of the strip to hang on their wall. That's never happened to me before, and I was very flattered.

Anway, here's the first signed, framed print, ready to be posted to a fellow indie dev to be hung on his office wall, so whenever something good happens he can just look up and instantly feel down and depressed again.

I now have a small number of beautiful giclee prints available, so if anyone out there wants one, either just a signed print to frame yourself, or a lovely framed one like this, just get in touch and we'll work it out.

Wow, am I really the first one to get a signed print of this? That does it - this gets pride and place in our home!

I really can't wait till it arrives. I already love your work but when I first saw this it blew me away just how close to home it was. It's also somewhat of a relief to know I'm not the only one to go through this.

Every game developer needs to have this on their wall.



I can relate to that comic all too well...
