Adventure Time!

Preparing for RTX 2018 - Part 1

A gaming convention is a great adventure for an indie game company and an indie developer's wife. Committing to a convention sets off a frenetic chain reaction that envelopes every member of the team. It’s expensive and stressful, but exciting and worth it. Conventions help us market and network on a national stage and exchange ideas with other indies. It also provides a mighty drop-dead deadline that energizes any development team. One of our favorite conventions is RTX in Austin, Texas. RTX is awesome because they are generously supportive of Indies, so when we get a chance, we go.

Because RTX 2018 is coming up fast, our artists and programmers are in crunch time. This year we will highlight Raptors’ Realm, SP Ent's in-dev game that is currently in prototype. So, our artists are working hard to create visual interest, and our programmers are busy improving existing mechanics and introducing new functionality. They have also been working on a few improvements to our published title, K3D. Our quality assurance guys are keeping watch for bugs. So barring unforeseen circumstances and equipment disasters, we should have some spiffy new things to show off at RTX.

However, it doesn’t matter what we’re showing off if nobody knows what we’re doing, and that’s where the marketing team, including yours truly, comes in. Next week, “paws” here to learn how the marketing team is working to make the most of this opportunity.
