Thumper wins Best Audio at Tokyo Indie Fest

Not much smiling, but we were all psyched.

Not much smiling, but we were all psyched.

We brought Thumper to the first Tokyo Indie Fest last weekend.  It was great to be among so many cool developers and introduce Thumper to Japanese gamers.

And Thumper won the Best Audio award!  Many classic Japanese games have inspired us while making Thumper, so picking up this award in the gaming holy land of Akihabara felt special.

This article from Famitsu covers all the winners (Japanese only).
