JUst an FYI, the announcement post was delayed due to a typo on Film
Victoria's end. They had accidently called us the Independent Game
Developers Assoication, so I wanted that to go ahead and let them fix that
before we had tons of people looking at our site and theirs. The typo should
be fixed today, and the announcement will hit out website and such soon to
