Home at long last after the event, bit jetlagged and a bit tired but what an amazing couple of days it has been!
First off I’d like to thank everyone who helped us getting set up at the booth, all the people who borrowed us computers, wires, the TV’s (game looks sooo good in 100″ full HD), all the people watching the livestreams at home and a huge special thank you to everyone who came by to say hi, played the game and gave us feedback! We really appreciate it!
The build we used for the event had a lot of stuff disabled, because well, spoilers! Still there were a few players who picked up on the game really fast and did some super impressive stuff, for example I saw two guys travelling to an incredibly cold arctic planet where they built a small base underground between two oceans, surviving just barely with the limited amount of gear they found, trying to stay warm enough not to freeze and fighting to stay alive from monsters of a fair bit higher level than themselves. Just a small thing really but it made me feel good about the game both catering to the more casual players as well as the more hardcore fanbase :) Personally I almost always want to play on hardcore mode when I play games just because i love the excitement of being able to lose it all if I mess up! (some people probably saw me dying a lot on one of the panels we did, sorry about that, we couldn’t actually clone the game screen to the computer so I had to look at the screen behind me to play which was a bit disorienting as well as using a foreign keyboard layout).
First day we had a small texture bug that caused the game to run out of memory, no big deal but we had to restart the game occasionally, as soon as we saw it the coders fixed the issue and we updated all of the builds on the computers after closing the booth for the night, and just to clear up any confusion we had turned off saving because we didn’t really intend for people to play for too long as we had a huuuuge amount of people wanting to test, some of them travelling across the world just to try it out, big <3 to you guys!
For all those who couldn’t be there I’m hoping to get the team together for a small run through of some of the content, we did a 4v4 hunger games PVP after closing on saturday but I’m sure some of you wanted to see more of the game as well so I will be talking to the rest of our team and try to get that sorted, we all need a bit of rest and some of the team still isn’t home yet so I dont want to promise anything just yet or set a time, hopefully you’ll understand! Other than that development will be back to normal and if you have any questions I’ll stick around for a bit in the comments section of this post and try to answer some of them!
And now, some random photos from my phone:

Huge crowd watching Yogscast play the game!
Omni and Armagon playing Dance Dance Revolution, Omni got the #1 high score on the machine. one of the best thing I’ve seen!
And that’s it from me! again, huge thanks to our amazing community for making this possible <3 you all!
