So, hi! I'm Nicky Case, I'm 20 years old, and I move all over the world, but right now I'm in Portland, Oregon. I've been here for less than three weeks.

I'm probably not qualified to talk about the game industry.

[Laughs.]

But I've been making -- I guess independent and weird web games for, like, over 10 years. Also, one of my games Coming Out Simulator -- one of my interactive stories -- was nominated for Best Narrative in the Independent Games Festival this year.

For people reading this who don't know, what is the IGF?

Oh! Also. Sorry.
