Tim Schafer - Go forth! Burn them alive!

Recommended Posts

Tim Schafer gave what sounds like an amazing speech at this years Lepzig Games convention. As Gamasutra eloquently stated of the speech:

In summing up, the designer had some strong conclusions: "It's an illusion that people don't want creativity", "Creative people need to be more fighters", "The enemy is not that big and scary", "We are the unholy terrible giants in the game industry", and even more bombastically: "We have machine guns full of ideas, rocket launchers full with passion."

His ending salvo was fierce and terrible, and definitely entertaining: "Go forth! Burn them alive! We are the hope and the future of the games industry."

Does anyone know of place where we might be able to find an audio recording of this? (I know this is geeky but I loved Tim's last GDC speech dearly.)

Oh, and here are two text summaries for anyone interested:

Agreed - it sounds and looks amazing!

If you never had a chance to hear Tim Schafers GDC speech about called "Adventures in Character Design" please click the link below. This is from the free podcast version the GDC released last year so it should be all legal like. They now charge about ten dollars for this speech which makes angels cry.

I fail. I realized why everything I post here doesn't work - it strips out any non alphabet character. Editing right now so it works...[link above should be good now]
