Better late than never..

The first Indie Rumble! was a blast. For a trial run, it went as well as could be expected. Developers and testers from the Iron Grip: Warlord game and the Pirates, Vikings and Knights II mod took part in the event. We are now working hard to turn the Indie Rumble! into a weekly show. Expect to see 16 Mod and Indie teams participating in Season Zero which we hope to launch at the beginning of October.

As our amazing announcer, Chris Schetter, said that day: "We are practically constipated with content. We have so much, we can't even get it all out". So, for those of you who could not attend the pilot, or for those who did and want to check out some of the parts we had to cut out (see audio interviews), worry not! We have everything recorded and available to be streamed and viewed right in this very post.

For starters, here's a quick recap of what went down:


As you can see, we started by interviewing the two development teams. We had to cut out some of the good stuff from the live broadcast, but the complete audio recordings can be heard here:


What you can expect to hear:
The Iron Grip story and development process, the business aspect of forming an Indie development team, the switch from Source to id Tech 3, how to get involved in the Beta, information about an Iron Grip: Warlord demo, downloadable content and much, much more!


What you can expect to hear:
Talk about Ninjas, Orange Box features, new classes and weapons, melee combat, Parrot naming, advice for startup Source mod teams, CHUCK NORRIS and more!

Both development teams were also kind enough to provide us with some then-exclusive in-game footage of their projects:



Finally, they.. Beat each other senseless for over 35 minutes:


We hope you have enjoyed this first of many Indie Rumble! broadcasts. Stay tuned for news of the next show. Track our group and you won't miss it!

Hearing my voice in that interview makes me cringe!

That said, was a fun day and a great start. Chris did an AMAZING job announcing, mad props, and to the dirty Pirates: you guys were fun to play. I look forward to more games with other teams :)

Crap I didn't get to participate. I have the ZMonsters team but how much does ModDB support indie games that aren't mod?
