Fire Hose (and Slam Bolt Scrappers) at BiG

They'd have a lot more cred if they called it "Bidness in Gaming". 'Cause then it'd be bidness time.

If you’re in Boston, making video games, and/or are even remotely interested in the business side of game dev I’d definitely recommend checking out the MIT BiG conference happening this coming Friday at the Microsoft NERD center next to MIT. It’s going to be a day long deal with all sorts of interesting panels on non-traditional marketing strategies, the changing face of social games, and “the next big thing”. Of course, the panel I’m most interested in is how to build and launch a gaming start up, mostly because I’m on it. It should be a lot of fun, I know that some of the guys here in the office are already starting a pool on what kind of stupid stuff I’m going to say.

Oh, and did I mention that we’ll be showing off Slam Bolt Scrappers at the conference? It’s true! We’ll have an awesome 4 player build for people to play, so if you didn’t get a chance to try the game out at PAX East be sure to swing by the conference and give our game a shot! Priority will be given to cosplaying conference goers, especially ones dressed up as Ghostbusters or giant chickens.

    Hi Eitan and the gang,

    It was nice to talk to you at MITBIG and also to see your new game. I was impressed with the game’s fun factor and with the conference overall. Some amazing panel discussions. If I am in the area I will stop by to play the game some more if that’s OK. I hope to see more companies like yours popping up in the area.
