DIY Gamer: Know Your IGF

"Okay so I’m gonna be slightly changing up the format of the “Know Your IGF” series we started recently. After giving the submissions a good look through I decided that there was just going to be no way for us to to a write up on each game in time for the event to kick off in March (we’re really not that big). So, instead, we’ll be putting down a paragraph or two (when applicable) of the game along with the IGF description and any videos/screenshots we can find. This way we can crank out about 3 per day with ease and make sure we get every single game locked down in time for IGF.

So, to start off with today’s newly revised “Know Your IGF” format here’s 40 Stories, by Chico State Game Studios." Read more

Indie Games Channel: IGF 2011 Preview: 40 Stories by Chico State Game Studios

"The story sees a tech support worker named Anita Hent trying to live out every American’s dream — to leave the office and go home. Of course, this turns out to be a harder task than it looks. Not only is Anita stuck within the confines of a 40-story skyscraper, but she has also run afoul of sinister co-worker Professor Darius McDoogle, who decides to use Anita as his own personal guinea pig and zap her with his Quantum Stabilizer. This gives Anita the power to clone herself, but also makes her a greater target for McDoogle, so she must use her newfound power to escape each one of the 40 stories before McDoogle can catch her."
