Seumas McNally Award

By Longbow,

The Independent Games Festival, is held each year at the annual Game Developers Conference in San Jose, California. The "Seumas McNally Award for Independent Game of the Year" is named to honor the memory of Seumas McNally, founder and lead programmer of Longbow Digital Arts. Seumas lost his battle with cancer on March 21st, 2000.

It was our pleasure to contribute an additional $5000.00 toward the "Seumas McNally Award", made possible in part by contributions to the Seumas McNally Memorial Fund. We believe that supporting an Independent Game's movement is the best way to encourage innovative developments in the game industry.

This year's winner of the "Seumas McNally Award for Independent Game of the Year" is an interesting puzzle/adventure game called "Bad Milk". You can download and try out a demo or purchase the full version from their web-site at:

Lest We Forget...

By Longbow,

I'm late posting a comment, as we were out of town last week when this horrific attack occurred at the World Trade Center in New York. Words are not enough to express our shock and our sadness. We extend our most heartfelt sympathies to all those families who have lost loved ones.

We happened upon an older movie that included with its intro a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline at night. The monolithic stature and majesty of the Trade Center towers sent a chill through us that cemented the horror of the loss, yet also helped reinforce the enormity of strength and purpose that the towers symbolize.
