Seltani, my quirky text-based Twine-style MUD Uru fan project, has been selected as a IndieCade festival nominee!

http://www.indiecade.com/2015/nominees

(Among many other recent indie wave-makers such as Her Story, Kerbal Space Program, Plug & Play, and Prune.)

This means I will be in Los Angeles for the IndieCade festival (October 23 to 25) to demo it.

This will be fun! And scary. I have achieved a different kind of quasi-celebrity than the kind I'm used to.

This is going on this weekend, by the way. I will be in the Firehouse at Culver City all day Saturday. (Well, Seltani will be there. I will take some breaks.)

Friday visitors were pretty intrigued by the idea. Everybody knows what Myst is. Not everybody has played it, and many people never heard about Myst Online, but everybody at least has an idea of what Myst was like.

(Quite a few people *do* remember Uru and were excited to see an Uru fan game. One guy said "Oh, I never played Myst, but I worked for Gametap!" And a couple of folks asked where Mysterium would be next year.) (Salt Lake City.)

So this is fun. But my feet hurt.
