In a small bit of redundancy, Tim Schafer will be the first recipient of the Trailblazer Award for Lifetime Achievement presented by IndieCade. This new category for the International Festival of Independent Games is geared at, surprise surprise, recognizing and honoring pioneers of the independent game community.
Schafer, long recognized for clever and inspired storytelling since his early days at LucasArts, is a great representation of such an award. In an additional fun fact the award is being presented to Schafer by former, and now current colleague, Ron Gilbert.
The presentation will be going down October 8th at 8:00 PM PDT at Sony Picture Studios in Culver City, CA for those interested. Further info can be found at the IndieCade website.
Oh, and it’s being hosted by LeVar Burton.
