I'm also from Poland. My grand-grandfather was Benedict Dybowski. He was exiled to Siberia as one of the leaders of 1863 rebellion! (Alas, Polans was a part of Russian Imperium then)... So instead of hanging, he was exiled - with Cherski and Chekanowski...
Wow... Knowing family roots so well... Respect! So can you speak/write something in Polish?

That's your grand-grandfather http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benedykt_Dybowski?
Our family is a family of rebels. ) That's why my 10-year-old son hates Putin...

Benedict brought my grandmother to life being a 70-years old man :!:
Hope I will have such a condition when I reach this age ;)

Hello, I am but another Void dweller that stood awestruck in its colorful bleakness.

So I figured I would come to say hi.

Hi. :)

i'm a level 25 crazy person from amurica, but don't hold that against me. i do so enough as it is already.

when i was little my parents instilled the rhetoric of "you can be anything you want when you grow up".
when my father asked me what i wanted to be: the first thing that popped into my head was Q from star trek.
but seeing as that didn't seem appropriate i instead said "game designer".

favorite written works:
a shadow out of time - lovecraft
the dark tower - king

i'm not big into movies; the medium doesn't really do it for me.
i like the cohen brothers, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and a few others.
a few animes here and there.

as far as music goes; i've been listening to a lot of these guys lately:
lots of meat in their lyrics.

because they're too unreal to not bring up while on the subject:
self-control will never be so tested as driving with these guys blasting.

and Disillusion
are also worth mentioning.
i could go on for ages.

arcanum, deus ex, quake 3, trackmania united, worms, minecraft, lots and lots of games.
though to be honest: the western gaming industry has attracted much ire from me as it's popularity exploded.

24 year-old Mexican that's been gaming since 1993.

I don't have a particular preference in genres when it comes to gaming. I do tend to avoid Fighting games and tend to perform poorly in Shooters and Shoot-'Em-Ups / Bullet Hell type games, however, but I still play and purchase them on occasion.

I speak English better than I do Spanish, and yet excel at neither (though opinions vary on my proficiency). I want to make games, but keep abandoning my projects or adding elements indefinitely to them.

Currently playing The Void and being curious about some of its ins-and-outs.

That's pretty much all of note about me at the moment.

I am 22 and live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been gaming since I could walk and decided about a year ago that I wanted to be a game developer for a living.

I have a strong liking to horror and gloomy portrayals in media in most forms; games, movies, literature, anime, and music. I love horror movies (both good and bad), literature by HP Lovecraft and Stephen King, and a variety of music including game soundtracks (such as The Void). Hobbies include gaming & game development, tech/computers, and cigars.

With game development I have learned a lot over the past year, such as many tools used in development, the game making process (from a short game I made) and analyzing games to fine details to try and learn how they did it and to understand why it was a good or bad decision in the final product. I search everyday and apply for positions, so far only one interview with a local company but it gave me some experience for future interviews and they even gave me advice on further pursuing my passion.

I also find insperation from Ice-Pick lodge's games (specificlly The Void and Pathologic) for taking a non-standard approach on game design and tapping further into what we can do with video games and what they can become.

Currently I am making a courier for Dota 2 and after plan on doing another project for my portfolio.

'Ello 'ello 'ello! Despite the heavily English Intro, I'm a Saskatchewan (It's in Canada) Stubble-Jumper, myself. I've been a fan of IPL and it's work for a while, starting with the void, and then branching out into Pathologic and getting really excited for Knock Knock. I've finally decided to join the forum.

Ello everyone. My name is Aeryck, I live in Milton Freewater, Oregon (United States). I don't really have a specific fancy in music, as long it isn't really hard kind of music (Some metal bands and some rock bands). I tend to watch anime, but that is only when I have the fancy for it, on the other hand I do tend to play games for around 50-75% of the day. So far the only game I've recently played from IPL is The Void. I am looking forward to playing the other games (I already have Cargo!, but none of the others). The games I tend to play also vary of how I'm feeling. If I feel like I want to get jumped a bit, I'll play a horror games. If I just want to kill things, you bet it, an action game. I am also 16 years of age. The books I tend to read also vary, but lately I've been reading the Dexter series, on Book 4/8
