Our game R-evolution placed 3rd at the STATTMEDIA Game Contest! We mocked this up for a laugh:
As we mentioned before, R-evolution was a finalist in the 5 BUTTONS Competition being run by Experimental Gameplay Project. Because of that, we had the awesome opportunity to be displayed at the Stattbad Wedding gallery in Berlin for people to come play our game among all of the other finalists.
As reported to us by one of the organizers, R-evolution was played in three sessions during the night. R-evolution isn’t the most, uh, friendly of games, so the first and second times it was played the players couldn’t get to the end. But, a daring group of friends wanted to try it out, and as the third time was the charm, they finished it to “an amazing roaring clapping and yelling from the public.” So awesome!
We’d like to thank all of the organizers as well as congratulate everyone else who were shown or entered – it’s incredibly thrilling to have independent games exposed to the public-at-large – shows like the STATTMEDIA event, NYU Game Center’s No Quarter, and venues like Babycastles go a long way in showing people the wide range of non-commercial and non-industry games out there, and us here at mindful xp are super happy that we could be a part of it.
We should have some pictures from the event posted shortly, and also releasing R-evolution on the site, so stay tuned!
