Preparing for the Festival

Posted in: Electric Shocktopus, Wednesday Update | September 12, 2013 | 2 Comments

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:

  1. Make the game super-fun
  2. Get the game *working*
  3. Stock up on granola bars
  4. Make sure the game works
  5. Decorations!!
  6. 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:


A Shocktoplush!

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.

      I know! They’re awesome, right? I think I’ll be ordering more shirts soon (family and such) — I’d be happy to get an extra one for you… I’ll let you know when I’m placing the order
