thatgamecompany turned five years old today (Editor’s mistake: Yesterday, oops!), so here’s some cake that’s not a lie!
It’s been a great five years, with our third game coming out soon, and we are looking forward to another five great years making games that challenge the traditional meaning of games and appeal to hardcore, dormant, and non-gamers.
The Smithsonian American Art Museum just announced that flOw PC and Flower (Pictured) will be part of the exhibit taking place next year called The Art of Video Games!
Flower was up against Super Stardust HD (one game I have played many, many, many times) and PixelJunk Shooter, and flOw was up against Shatter and Everyday Shooter (one game I have played many, many, many times). All awesome games and really fun, and congratulations for Q Games, Jonathan Mak/Queasy Games, Sidhe Interactive, and Housemarque for being nominated! And congratulations to every other game developer who has had their game nominated or chosen to be part of this amazing exhibit!
