Earlier this year, the fine organizers at Portland's XOXO Festival asked me to interview Ron Carmel, principal of the Indie Fund and co-creator of World of Goo. Ron was a lovely intervieweee and the piece above is a great overview/origin story from start to finish of a successful indie title. We talked about his life at EA, the untraditional roots of Goo, patent infringement, and the future of independent game. If you want a primer on a exciting slice of games, this should be it.
