Unwinnable Interviews Richard Hofmeier

You’re all doomed!


Richard Hofmeier’s Cart Life – a realistic and sometimes brutal portrayal of street vendors struggling to make ends meet that swept the Independent Game Festival awards during this year’s Game Developers Conference – is a deeply affecting game. Hofmeier isn’t interested in his indie limelight, however, and made sure everyone attending GDC knew it with a spraypainted endorsement of Porpentine’s Twine game Howling Dogs over Cart Life’s space at the IGF pavilion the day after the awards. Team Unwinnable’s Sam Machkovech interviewed Hofmeier at Unwinnable’s secret game salon following GDC to get a feel for Hofmeier’s thoughts on Cart Life, GDC and sharing the wealth.
