Here's a Facebook chat with words that absolutely made my day. I want to share the whole conversation with you, only slightly edited. It's with Falco Girgis, developer of Elysian Shadows, a 2D RPG under development for the Sega Dreamcast and PC. This conversation entails what I love about indie communities:
Falco Girgis: Hey, bro. I just wanted to say keep doing what you do. You give people like me a reason to keep going when things get tough.
I wish the best for you guys. It's very inspirational to just read your facebook statuses. You guys really deserve it.
And you're so supportive of other people. I try so hard to follow your example and support others (though my first instinct is sometimes to be envious).
You're good fucking people. I really respect that.
Amazing stuff. Thank you so much, Falco Girgis! Any of you, feel free to add me to your Facebook.
Check out Falco Girgis' work on the Elysian Shadows official site and his YouTube channel which has lots of great videos that give back to the indie game development community. Also twitter and facebook links if you want. I wish him the best of luck!
That is all.
