Treasure Adventure World was selected to be a part of the Digital Games Showcase at the Boston Festival of Indie Games. It’s being held on Sept 13th in Boston, MA. So, if you’re already going, or are near Boston you should come visit us. We’ll be showing off the updated combat system and a new boss battle that we’ve finished.

As a part of the show, visitors can vote for their favorite games in a number of categories. The winners will receive a “Figgie” Award. I wouldn’t mind winning one of those. :)

TooManyGames 2014 Post-Mortem

Events 1 1 Comment

If you read my Post-Mortem about PAX East you’ll know that it was less than successful for us. The amount of press, pre-orders and social media we got was lacking considering the cost of exhibiting (at least for now, as we’re still in Alpha). So I was actually really looking forward to seeing how the TooManyGames Expo would compare. TMG is not even remotely the same scale as PAX, but I think in some ways that is a benefit for a small indie game at this stage.

If you’re in the greater Philadelphia region with nothing to do this weekend, you should come to the TooManyGames Expo in Oaks, PA. We’re bringing the latest build of the game and we have a fresh supply of swag (buttons and posters). And you can also do what I’ll be doing (time permitting) and look for some good deals on old games.

PAX East Post-Mortem: Bittersweet

Events 6 6 Comments

I promised to tell you about our PAX East experience. This is sort of difficult for me because I have trouble admitting my own failures in such a public way. But, ultimately you are the one’s supporting our team and you deserve to know when we screw-up as much as when we succeed. Luckily it’s not all bad news, and I’m very good at learning from my mistakes. So with that in mind, let’s begin.

The Good.

Most of the time during the convention I was ecstatic - almost euphoric. I got a lot of really good feedback. People who played TAW seemed to enjoy their time with it. And occasionally I’d get to see someone laugh and their eyes light up when they “got it”. Seeing that was amazing and I try to keep it in mind whenever I’m having a tough day.

Another great takeway was the constructive feedback I received. Some of it was verbalised to me while some I took note of myself while watching people play. I came away with a list of changes I could make to improve the experience for players. I also came to a realisation that I definitely need to focus on our potential female fans as it seemed like a good portion of the people who really got into TAW were women.
