Flyover Indies has provided a home to Kansas City area game creators (both tabletop and digital) since 2014. The community, which started small, has grown rapidly into a multifaceted group full of game creators, musicians, and artists.

This year, to celebrate the video games created by Flyover Indies group members this year, they’ve created a tee shirt. The shirt is available in multiple styles (like a cozy hoody—trust me, you need another hoody) and lists the names of the games as well as their creators’ names.

Allison Vansickle, who designed the 2020 Games Celebration Tee and Hoody and develops games, describes her inspiration for the tee shirt design.

“I knew from the start I wanted to include the Flyover mascot Batigan,” says Vansickle. “From there I thought it’d be cool to have it feel like a shirt you’d get at a concert. Maybe it stems from all the concerts and events we couldn’t go to last year.”

“With every year the list of games that KC devs release grows and grows,” adds Vansickle. “But more important I think is the people that are added as well. It’s been very special to see what was once such a small group grow into a community.”

Despite the pandemic, Flyover Indies had an especially productive year. The tee shirt is jam-packed with the names of 22 games created in 2020.

Game developers Nash High and Jo Hanna express why the commemorative tee shirt is so special to them.

“Part of what I love about the tee is how it’s a snapshot of the year,” says High. “There are games from specific game jams and Flyover events, as well as longer projects that we’ve been rooting for months or even years. It’s neat to look back and remember what everyone was up to in a given year—and all the sweet stuff Flyover folks made!”

“It’s easy for me to forget how important making small games is to my growth as a designer,” says Hanna. “Putting all of the games we’ve made on a tee, regardless of scope or success, makes them feel more real, and helps me to appreciate the work I’ve done over the years.”

The shirt is available for purchase here, and for more information on Flyover Indies and their events, visit their website or join them on Discord.
