    Default The nicest thing a fan has made?

    What was the nicest(coolest) thing a fan of your games has made?

    I've got astonished when I saw this:
    http://dylosworld.wordpress.com/

    He even has a home made Dylo!

    Before that I have had some mails with "We really enjoyed it, good work!" but this is a line in my indie developer career.

    I guess some of you have big comunities of fans but I'm new and I didn't see it coming, it really surprises me.

    When did you feel this for the first time?
    And more interesting for me: How?

    and who says there's not more to making games then money?

    Really nice stuff guys, reminds us why we go though all the hard work of actually making these games.

    maybe you could expand the dylo universe and make more games, you'd at least have one happy customer

    Can't resist sharing some recent pics:

    Plenty of YouTube videos too, but better than the tributes are the thank you letters from chemotherapy patients, stroke victims, cigarette quitters, dieters, etc.

    Yes Laki,

    We've been on a bunch of TV and in films including The Sopranos and Saturday Night Live - Lorne Michaels was playing on his Mac when Steve Martin stormed in asking for a raise.

    A lot of comedy TV writers enjoy the game too so there are random mentions.

    And, a series of novels has the main character playing Snood to chill out and re-charge.

    Neat thread!

    Here are some pictures that a teacher sent me of his 4th-grade students playing Fashion Cents on their laptops and SmartBoard:

    Here's one of their class mascot playing Fashion Cents:

    One of my contest winners had a brother-in-law that made her a trophy out of a barbie doll, gold paint, and "fashion cents":

    Here's a picture that my sister-in-law sent me. Her young daughters lined up their dolls like they are in Fashion Cents, arranged them by hair/skin color to match Fashion Cents, and dressed them according to the Fashion Cents rules.

    Fan art is always cool!

    One of the most flattering things anybody ever did was build my website for free. He's constantly updating the site and shop with new features and implements all my requests almost instantly. But yet, he absolutely refuses to take any money. He just wants to be a part of it.
