All set for TIGA 2012!

We’re all totally pumped to have a good time at the TIGA 2012 awards.  What’s super cool about it is that it will be the first time the team has actually met in person since the project started back in March.  Barry Island and Charlie haven’t seen each other for the best part of six years!

We’ve also never been to anything like an awards ceremony. It’s gonna be a totally awesome reunion and party for us. We’ve also got ChetMega from Townhouse Records and his entourage coming along to enjoy the event along with some other VIP guests who’ve supported Frutorious all the way from the beginning.

ChetMega – the voice of Frutorious F.I.G.

Another cosmic thing is we think we’re the smallest team up for a TIGA award with only three dudes! It would be a total underdog victory if we won anything, but we think we’ve really captured in our game the run away independent spirit of videogames in both casual and audio design and hope that gets recognition 🙂

We’re pumped. We’ve got Friday off. We’ve got our T-Shirts ready…

Look at our awesome t-shirts!

We’ve got our nomination announcement trailer ready…

We’ll be rockin the awards ceremony and representing at the after show. If you’re there too come along and say hi! Stop and have a drink! Pop out for a fag! Chat about games and music with us! We’re pretty awesome dudes, we’ll be the ones wearing Frutorious T-Shirts 🙂

See you there!

We just wanted to thank everyone who voted for us.  You guys are all fantastic and we’re so grateful for your help in getting Frutorious and our tiny team nominated.  Without you guys playing our game, helping us and sharing our updates and taking the time to vote, we wouldn’t have got here.  It’d just have been me and Charlie voting and that would have been a sorry state of affairs.

Whatever happens at the awards, this is super exciting!  We’ll be sure to let you know how we get on… in the mean time though, we’ll be cracking on with the update for you all 🙂
