Boryokudan Rue: 2010 IGF Student Finalist

For the past two-ish years, I have been working on a game. This game is called Boryokudan Rue. For some reason I haven't been posting much about it; however, in November of 2009 I entered it into a little contest called the "Independent Games Festival" as a student entry. Today, I found out it has just been nominated as a student finalist in the 2010 Independent Games Festival.

This is the game. Boryokudan Rue.
This was a very, very, awesome surprise. Thanks to everybody who helped support this game, whether it be through a simple play-test, or a word of encouragement. Without you, Boryokudan Rue would not be where it is today, so thank you, one and all.

Hopefully, I will be going to the Game Developers Conference in March for the Independent Games Festival, where the final winners will be announced. Until then, I will keep you posted! Thank you, and good night!

Oops. Bad word choice.

It's a student entry, that's all.

And Student Entry == Student Game.
