Again I didn’t manage to post anything in quite some time. Whoops. With a bit of luck, this shouldn’t happen so much any more, but I’ve said that a few too many times.
So, PAX Aus and GBL. PAX was huge, a really awesome sea of lights, gamers, games and merch. I ended up buying a Portal Gun and a Sennheiser gaming headset. But as far as the stands went, there weren’t all that many that interested me. As I wasn’t die hard on Fallout, or Battlefront, or Wargaming (World of Tanks and the like), they were sort of the biggest attraction. That, and stands giving away stuff. But, mostly, I was there for GBL.
So, we had lots of people come up and play Galactic Battle League. A lot of them wanted to buy it, but sadly we’re not at a stage where we’re ready to sell it. We also had a guy from ID@XBOX come up and have a chat with us (me, actually, as I was minding the stand at the time). He thought it was a pretty cool game, and encouraged that if we get set up to get in touch with them to potentially get it on Xbox One. That was pretty damn exciting! We also found an image gallery put out by Kotaku, that was basically a “Highlight of PAX Aus” sort of thing, and that our game was one of the pictures.
So we have ourselves a pretty damn cool game. Combine that with the fact we got a Distinction on our assessment, this project certainly has some ambition.
The only problem now, is sorting out everyone to sit down and have a chat about it. Because, I’d really hate to see all this effort and interest end up going no further.
There’s a Swinburne Games Lab Showcase coming up next week though. With a bit of luck we might just be able to have our chat then…
