Thank you AppsWorld London!
Wow! What a brilliant trip Ewan (CEO) and myself (Charlie) had at AppsWorld London this year! We met so many fantastic gaming companies showcasing their new titles, a lot of kean individuals wanting a foot in the door in the games industry and also a whole bunch of strategy games fans! So thank you to everyone who went and made the exhibition as fantastic as it was!
When we set off for AppsWorld on Tuesday the 11th (not long after my suitcase wheel abandonded me due to the weight of flyers I had stuffed into my bag) we had a goal in mind: to create awareness of the company and give everyone ranging from developers to gamers an insight into what Legendary Games can offer you. And, with help from our artist Sam, we were able to do so as he produced a flyer which demonstrated both sides of the company which was used to explain our services as some people were a little confused... So thanks Sam!
With that in mind, we had a whole bunch of people show interest in us and our games which was great to see and witness people playing our games with a smile on their face. And as a result of AppsWorld, We've gained a few more active players on our game currently in development (the game we were showcasing) Year O Tactics!
Ewan was also invited as a speaker to the event to speak alongside prestigious individuals such as his best chum Prof. Brian Cox or as Ewan knows him by, Coxxy. With Ewans speaker pass granting him the oppurtunity to speak on a panel discussion alongside other indie development teams, Ewan was discussing the challenges indie developers face when going mobile! In addition to this, Ewan also got the oppurtunity to tell the audience about Legendary Games and the game we were promoting on our 2 day stay which was a great way to get some extra attention to our little stall!
Not long after this, Ewan and myself were given the oppurtunity to take part in 'The big Indie Developers pitch' which was a competition developers took part in pitching their game in a speed dating fashion to 4 sets of judges, and the best IP would win a special prize! Sadly, we didn't win but we learnt a lot from the experience and it was great fun to take part of... and hectic at times!
Looking back on the trip we learnt a lot about ways to improve Tactics as a result of observing players test the game and their own general suggestions, which is great, as we now face the final few weeks before we officially release Tactics! We are very excited about this!
If you're interested in playing Year 0 Tactics, visit our games portal tab and try it out today! Dont forget to sign onto the forums where you can post your ideas and suggestions surrounding the game :)
Once again we would like to thanks AppsWorld London again for this amazing oppurtunity to showcase our games and the company, and we look forward to coming next year! (if we get invited)
