With Game-fest being over and done with, I can certainly say that the experience was well worth it! Despite the crunch the week before, going to the festival and seeing people who have never heard of the game before sit down and love the experience was incredible! The thing that surprised me the most was how into it some people got, us being a niche game I wasn’t expecting people to be as into it as they did. Especially the younger folks.
Also being around that many other developers was amazing, seeing everyone’s hard work being appreciated by the public was an amazing experience, as well as talking to other devs about what they were doing was awesome! Surprisingly the build itself didn’t have any major bugs in it either, considering the current milestone of the game I was expecting at least a few un-noticed bugs to pop up during the showing, but no! All in all, it was a great experience, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
