If you're in Seattle and going to the World of Warcraft rave on Friday, say hi if you spot me! Sounds like a few of us will be there
We've snuck into REACTOR's supply closet and set up shop there. I'm pretty psyched about our new digs:
We've also got a white board, but it is full of secrets.
I need to do a reorder of shirts so I'm opening it up to everyone to order if you're interested.
They'll be somewhere between $13-$20 each + shipping depending on how many folks buy-in. I don't think Google Wallet allows IRL product purchases like Google Checkout used to, so we'll experiment with PayPal for this (or you can send Check, Money Order, Bitcoin, etc).
If you want to buy one, please open a support ticket with the subject 'shirt'.
- Gildan 5000 Heavy Cotton Tee
- 5.3-ounce, 100% preshrunk, open-ended carded cotton
- Classic loose fit for all-day comfort
- Shoulder-to-shoulder tape and seamless collar
- Double-needle neck sleeve and bottom hem
Tomorrow (Saturday) I'll be at iFEST in Seattle demoing the game. If you're nearby, swing on over and say hello!
If you're a Seattle indie game developer, you should enter the 2014 Seattle Independent Game Competition. 8BitMMO won last year! Competition entry is free, so what are you waiting for?
I had a great last few days at PAX, where I got to show 8BitMMO to the attendees. I had a kiosk in the REACTOR booth, and many folks stopped by to learn about the game. I handed out my entire supply of 1,000 postcards and demoed the game a few hundred times.
Many people had already heard of the game, or even played it previously. A few fans stopped by too, and it was an awesome experience to meet them IRL.
It was also a great opportunity on the business side - I got to meet media outlets that had previously covered us online and ones who are interested in doing so in the future. Additionally, a number of industry folks stopped by, and we discussed some very exciting plans for the future.
On Sunday I got to DJ for about twenty minutes for an impromptu dance party (DJ RobbyZ!)
It. Was. Awesome.
I will be demoing the game at PAX! If you're going to the expo, be sure to swing by
Last week I got to demo the game at Indie Prize at the Casual Connect conference in San Francisco.
I got to hang out with other cool indies:
Showed the game off:
Gave a talk:
And won a Director's Choice Award!
I'm excited to announce that 8BitMMO has been accepted into REACTOR, a start-up accelerator program here in Seattle that empowers the next generation of talent and innovation in games and apps. I've been getting some quality mentoring, networking opportunities with other industry pros, and office space in their incubator lab.
