This past weekend was the Long Beach Comic Con. I have a real love for this convention. The show runners do a fantastic job with this event. I think they made a small misstep this year in moving it to September and dropping the horror aspect of the show. It really seemed like the attendance was down. I had a table in Artists Alley near the back and still did okay. I loved every interaction with each attendee and fellow creators!
This coming Sunday, October 5th, I’ll be at SoCal Comic Con which is a 1 day convention in Oceanside, CA with a table selling my game. IT’S ONLY $7 TO ATTEND!!! I love the price for people to come and enjoy this con. I’ll be there selling more We Are Dead in time for Halloween and Christmas, and Starcade prototypes. I’m going to try out a new prize bag where people can win a copy of We Are Dead, T-shirts, Starcades, and all my other loot for just $1!
Right now I’m sorting my comic book collection and trying to sell off some of it on eBay and getting the art for Starcade done so I can launch the Kickstarter.
If you’re in Southern California on October 5th and near Oceanside consider coming to the show!
So much is going on right now. All of the Kickstarter copies have either been received or are in the mail out to the backers. I’m trying to handle any issues as they arise.
Since I got most of the games in the mail almost 500 copies of the game have gone out to gaming and comic book stores. Following the release I went to the GAMA trade show and interacted with over 100 stores and got to show them the game first hand. It was incredibly successful! Finally, I had a table at WonderCon and had an amazing reception from the crowd there.
Someone from almost every demo session picked up a copy of the game and couldn’t be happier with peoples reaction when they play the game.
This weekend (April 25) I’ll be in San Diego at KingdomCon. I’ll be demoing all day Friday and Saturday. If you are in the area come check out the con. This will be my first year there, but it sounds like it’s going to be a great time. It seems to me that the con was built up around the local miniatures community and is growing their board game and RPG events and presence. I’m excited to be apart of it!
In the next couple of updates I’ll talk about the Dead@17 Kickstarter Reboot and a new micro-game that I’ve made and want to do a quick limited release for. More info to come!
Above is a picture of our booth right after we set up, and before the gates opened. Lots of candy was handed out and we had a never ending stream of zombies inquiring about the game! Thank you to anyone who stopped by our booth and be sure to check us this weekend (Nov 3 & 4) at the Long Beach Comic-Con!
