Tim Schafer, this is your life...

And the Honorary Trailblazer Ward for Lifetime Achievement goes to...

IndieCade announced Thursday that it's bestowing its new Honorary Trailblazer Ward for Lifetime Achievement to Tim Schafer, the creative mind behind numerous games including Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, and the upcoming Costume Quest.

Schafer is scheduled to receive the award during IndieCade's October 8 Awards Show at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. Longtime colleague Ron Gilbert, who recently signed on to work at Schafer's Double Fine Productions and worked with him on groundbreaking games like The Secret of Monkey Island at LucasArts, is slated to give him the award.

"Holy cow, I had no idea I was so old. Is this because of the grey in my beard? Well, it's an honor, and I'm happy that it's coming from a great organization like Indiecade," said Schafer in a release about the award.

Schafer started his career in the early 1990s at LucasArts, where he gained recognition for his work on The Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and Grim Fandango. He opened Double Fine in 2000, and its first game was the critically acclaimed Psychonauts.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
