Gamescom retrospect

Postby maever » Tue Aug 23, 2011 7:14 pm

If you're one of our twitter or facebook followers you might have heard about Team Excalisoft's trip to the Gamescom in Germany.

The Gamescom is the games event of the year here in Europe.
A gamer true to his heart can not pass up such an opportunity.

What is the Gamescom?
It's a grand games celebration (even festival) in the city of Cologne,
In the heart of the event are 6 grand halls filled with stands, shows, movie screens, new gadgets and of course... GAMES!

We met a few interesting people there and of course enjoyed the various shows, gadgets and media.
Didn't get to see as much of DOTA2 as i've wanted, skipped mass effect because of the 5 hour waiting line.
I personally was a bit bothered by the abundance of weird Playstation move & Kinect games.

Not to worry sagramore will (unless Johan gets weird urges) NOT get Kinect support xD

Although business wise no big steps were made we did get to talk to some representatives of the payment options we plan to offer.

It was a fun trip and are planning to go next year.

Well, there was a games event in London Earl's Court a few months ago ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurogamer#Eurogamer_Expo ) with major companies exhibiting their games there... that's in walking distance for me :-)

Not sure how the 2 events compare, sizewise.

Gamescom is the biggest in the world, over 300.000 visitors attended last time I believe.

then again, not all conventions are accessible by the public
