It's Game Convention Season!

Time certainly does fly when you're working your asses off, and suddenly we're in the middle of August already!  September is soon coming upon us, and that means it's time to hit the convention trail.  But first, a trailer!

This was a bit of a rush job by me and Cliff, but it'll do for now.  We'll still work on a much better trailer of course, but in the meantime this will have to do for the FOUR conventions we'll be heading to in September!

PAX West : September 2-5


That's right, for the first time ever I will be heading to the city of Seattle to attend PAX West to show off Party Animals.  And even better, we're part of the Indie Megabooth lineup! Check out the game at the Indie Minibooth Sunday and Monday.

I'm super excited to attend PAX and show off the game.  Not only that, I hope to meet awesome developers from around the world and attend awesome PAX panels like the Giant Bomb variety show!


BICFest : September 9-12

"The Busan Indie Connect Festival (BICFest) is a global independent games conference held annually in Busan, South Korea. Each year, dozens of independent studios and hundreds of developers converge to see sessions, share their projects, and help foster a growing global independent developer community. Organized by and for independent game developers, BIC's primary focus is provide a friendly space for creativity, sharing, and play."

Our youngest programmer Don will be attending the second Busan Indie Connect, an Indie games festival held in Busan, South Korea.  I wanted to join him, but due to flight schedules he's gonna have to go by himself.  If you're in South Korea and into games please do drop by and check out all the awesome indie games!

Tokyo Game Show : Sept 15-18

Meanwhile in Japan, our co-founder and designer Tristan will be joining a Philippine delegation in presenting the best of Indie games from the Philippines.  This is also the first time we're going to be at TGS, and Tristan's first time in Japan!  Hit him up if you want to know about what went into designing the rules and events in the game!

We're hoping the fact that we have a Japanese inspired map will entice Japanese players.  We'll be looking for distributors in Japan interested localizing and releasing the game there so please get in touch if you're interested!

EGX : September 22-25

This is my second time going to EGX, after the Prison Architect Launch last year.  It will have been one year since I first met up with Cliff of Positech Games and sealed a publishing deal that made Political Animals a reality.  In some ways this is us coming full circle, and hopefully the folks at EGX will love the game as much as we do.

This time around I'll be joined by co-founder and programmer Marnel.  Come visit us and chat him up about neural networks, machine learning, and all sorts of nerdy programming shit.  Afterwards we can hang out and knock down a couple of pints of Guinness.

Please Contact Us!

Phew, that's FOUR conventions in just one month!  Unfortunately for us introverts, showing up at these conventions is often crucial for the success of indie games, so we have to do suck it up, do the work, and show off our game to the world.

If you're going to be at these events and want to schedule a meeting, please get in touch with us using the contact tab on this website.  We're looking meeting you!
