I hope everyone will be celebrating the new years like I am, 2013 was a huge year with loads of news and events going on within each week. And with the year coming to a close, it’s time for me to look back to see how far Gamepopper has come in this last year. Continue reading
Hey everyone! If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you’d be aware that I was gonna take part in Ludum Dare 28. So now that the jam has come and gone and we are in the judging period, you are probably asking where the game is.
Since it has been a while since I did a status update, here is the latest update for Secret of Escape, along with a brand new gameplay video! There’s a lot of stuff to get through, so read on to find out what’s been happening for the past few months. Continue reading
Yes! I am back from Iceland and I feel great!
Iceland was a brilliant country to visit, great views, calm city life and amazing hot springs which are better than any beach I have been to. While the weather was freezing, and was so cloudy I never got to see the Northern Lights, the holiday made up for it with heated housing and a really good location. I have scenic photos which you can see here.
So now it’s back to work from me! I’ll be at the Launch Conference in Birmingham on Thursday and Friday, where I’ll be wandering around talking to other devs (and maybe you), listening to the talks, playing some games, and I am shortlisted for the LAUNCH Conference Best Portfolio Award! I’ll be showing some photos of the event of course, and I’ll be continuing my development of Secret of Escape, so you might have a chance to try it!
In the meantime, feel free to read an article about Secret of Escape from 4logpc.com! It’s a great site about PC gaming that writes really good stuff, totally worth a read.
I linked the wrong page in my last blog post and I only noticed it today. If you want to try out the demo for Secret of Escape, go to the page here. You can also find the page by going to Games > 2013 and clicking on the Secret of Escape screenshot.
Sorry for the error.
Now is time for Day Two, where the zombies roam, more games to see and more indie stuff, and not just from Eurogamer itself! One thing I failed to notice from last night was this ambulance with the Surgeon Simulator logo on it, it looks really awesome!
Hey guys! It’s Saturday and despite Eurogamer still running until Sunday, I’ll tell you about my time at Eurogamer! This was surprisingly my first time at Eurogamer, I missed out last year so I really wanted to go after missing out on a lot. Thanks to being a Windows Games Ambassador, I volunteered help with Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Dreamspark promotion at the event and got to be a zombie! But more on that when we get to it, because here’s a summary of what happened on the day before Eurogamer started.
On Thursday and Friday, I’ll be at Eurogamer Expo in London. You’ll most likely find me either at the Microsoft Booth or the GamesIndustry Fair as I’m helping out with their Windows 8 promotions. Sadly I won’t have Secret of Escape ready for exhibition, but I’ll be showing it off at the Loading Bar in Soho as part of Indie Haven’s Indie Games Event.
So you may or may not see me, but feel free to visit Microsoft’s booth or the GamesIndustry Fair anyway, as well as the many other things there such as the conferences, the new and old games, the indie games display and many more! I’ll be writing about my time during the weekend, so stay tuned!
