So, my 3 day long exhibit at Nordic Game in Malmö, Sweden is done.
Those of you who don’t remember or didn’t see the other post about half a year ago, we won the local Slovenian Games Conference quarter final of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest - which made us eligible to exhibit at Nordic Game for free, with AMD sponsoring the PCs.
They also printed us this dope rollup I designed which of course I silently packed and left with afterwards
The semi finals were us and about 15 or 16 other games from all around Europe which turned out to be mostly from actually legit studios, unlike our small team So it’s really no surprise that we didn’t get into the final 4 (which I was kind of counting on and didn’t really have the final presentation ready )
At least the semi final presentation went well and I didn’t make too much of an ass of myself, which is all I wanted.
Otherwise the exhibit went great, people seemed to like the game a lot, made some new connections and met various cool industry people.
The part I was always waiting for when some gamedev was trying it out was the “Is this made in unity?” question. To which I could then reply with what you all already know and see the super big surprise on their face
There was this one guy who actually knew what Jme (and even Lemur) were, so perhaps people are slowly starting to hear about it.
Oh and those tiny ships are paper models btw, the larger one with magnets that stick the individual modules together.
