Preparing for the Festival
Just a quick post this week – for obvious reasons. This Saturday (just a couple days away) is the Boston Festival of Indie Games, in which I’m taking part. I’ll be there with the Electric Shocktopus – showing the latest build off to a few thousand people.
And before then I’ve got to:
- Make the game super-fun
- Get the game *working*
- Stock up on granola bars
- Make sure the game works
- Oh god, why isn’t the game working
Yes, the joy of trying to make massive changes on the eve of a big event (hey, I wonder if I can increase the resolution by 50%…) — all while still needing a game that doesn’t break. Whew, it’s busy over here.
So here’s just a couple pictures of some of the awesome decorations:
That’s right — a plush Shocktopus and Yeti! Custom made by my Mom (thanks, Mom!). Swing by the booth to check them out and give ‘em a squeeze.
And of course a shirt to help me show off the game.
Ah, Electric Shocktopus, awesome band name. So there you have it — some decor for the big day. Now it’s back to working on the *digital* version of the Shocktopus.
