There is a time for work, a time for holiday, a time for work, and a time for… fanarts. We juste received this stunning fanart by “Black Seagull”. If you know our game ASA: A Space Adventure by Simon Says: Play!, you probably recognized immediately the hero in his spacesuit, totally hypnotized by his discovery of a mysterious and unknown Black Cube.
Thank you very, very much Black Seagull (or whoever you are), you can be sure that Simon was moved by your wonderful work.

Recently, I saw different news on Tumblr and Facebook from different artists, who share some work about Monoliths. So here we go with our own Monolith!

Have you ever watched Simon’s film 2011: A Space Adventure?

"A cosmonaut was sent to repair an old satellite. He just finished his mission when…"

This is not related to 2001 : A Space Odyssey, it’s more a kind of tribute. The story of Kubrick’s movie was supposed to take place exactly ten years ago when I made the film in 2011. I particularly wanted to bring my own representation of the famous replica “It’s full of stars”!

  • New member, Roger RKT

Today we at The icehouse are happy to welcome Roger as a new Member of the collective! Roger (or RKT) is our "You have a problem? I have the solution"-man. Does it make sense? Not really, that’s why Roger joins us.

  • New manager, SuperRoger

Until now Roger was following and supporting us as a friend, text proofer and solution finder. Now Roger not only becomes a Member, he becomes our Manager, and will slowly replace Simon who needs to find more time for his own projects (Catyph and Mon Village est Magique) - or just some time to sleep!

  • Building our future

You might not see the difference in our everyday news, but we’re sure that Roger will help us a lot in our mission of making The icehouse a kind of “indie publisher for indie artists”. We’re still very far from it, but we have lots of plans for the future, and we’re almost sure that you’ll like them too if you like indie art. Of course don’t expect too much from us, we’re still doing all this for free during our free time ;)

  • New Friend, Andy and his mustache

This is also the good moment to welcome Andy from Millenium_2k as one of our “Best Friends”. Andy is a developer currently working on a secret project with Simon Says: Play! We can’t wait to reveal you more!

  • Best Friends to the end

What we call “Best Friends" (in the menu of the site) are people we feel close of, for different reasons, but who won’t join us as Members now (either they don’t want to be in the collective, or either they’re not artists…). These Friends are people that we really consider (much more than a friend on Facebook, ok!), and we won’t hesitate to share some of their most important news with you here.

  • Thank you!

We often try to thank you for following us, but it’s probably never enough. We hope you have fun discovering the pictures and works of our 3 current main indie artists, Simon Says, Beckoning Cat and Ape Marina. Let’s hope you’ll see much more in the future (more works from them, and more artists too!) and that you will enjoy seeing our projects as much as we like sharing them.
