So I’m in England, which is awesome. I landed a couple days ago, but am still a little weird with the sleep schedule. So here I am after a three hour nap from 2:30-5:30 AM local time writing up an announcement for Arcen’s presence at a couple events over on this side of the pond.
GameCity and ExPlay
First, I’ll be demoing Shattered Haven on Friday between 10 AM and 4 PM at GameCity7 in Nottingham. The event has taken over the city center for this past week and goes through the upcoming weekend, and from what I’ve seen so far there’s nothing else like it. So definitely stop by if you’re in town!
Following the exhibiting hours, I’ll be participating in a talk called ‘It’s Complicated’ with Mode 7’s amazing Paul Taylor of Frozen Synapse fame. We’ll be discussing the pursuit of simplicity while being complex and the complexity that can come about from simplicity in game design. We’ll be playing examples of both as well. Should be an informative, but entirely casual affair.
AI War Franchise Sale Ends Friday, Beta Patch 6.001 Out Now
Just a reminder that the 10% off Ancient Shadows/75% off all other AI War products on Steam comes to an end this Friday, October 26th around Noon pacific time. If you haven’t yet taken advantage of picking up the entirety of the AI War series for under $10, what exactly are you waiting for?
Also, AI War beta 6.001 is out now and fixes a few bugs that made it into the 6.0 official build.
