Long silence, huh? Took a while for my determination to kick back in after post-con depression dragged me under like a hungry Kraken. The first draft of this post being deleted just as I hit the publish button yesterday didn't help motivate me either.
I'm ready to talk about BronyCon now and get back to BGP after a solid week of no gamedev! Get some belated BronyCon details below!
|Lots of pics with cosplayers, friends, and Baltimore landmarks.|
I'll spare you the albums and just say the good times were documented.
|The BGP panel had some technical hiccups. |
And by some I mean every possible one.
- BronyCon 2016 Panel
- Released BGP Demo 5
- Patched BGP Demo 5 (more fixes on the way via 5.1)
- 2 New Songs by E^2
- Met Multiple Random Yotes Games Fans in Person!
- Week Long Break (vacation?)
- Even when crud hits the fan, I can pull through. My game crashed on stage in the exact way my nightmares foretold, and people still enjoyed the panel because I kept a humorous tone going.
- My personality is part of the game's appeal. Soon people will be coming to my panels for me as much as they come for my games.
Aside from that mess, other life events lately include attending a wedding with friends, finally trying out Overwatch and Pokemon Go like the rest of my generation, and relaxing with my girlfriend at her apartment (alone together in a home of our own at last, just to see what its like).
Technical derpages right out the gate seriously threw me off. Everything I had rehearsed was thrown out the Window. Things went from hype to awkward and I did everything in my power to stay cool and not look like I wanted to cry. Despite everything going hazy as the event I had planned for a year crumbled around me, I was apparently still charismatic and entertaining. People looked past the bugs and saw potential. I started the Q&A early and people were eager to find out more about the vision of the project and where it's going instead of where it is... But you can read more about that panel experience this Friday.
We got into all kinds of shenanigans and funny celebrity encounters. Wherever we went we brought the Pinkie Pie party energy with us. Whether it was the Gala, the palooza, or just us sitting together at a panel, the good vibes were flowing and were seriously contagious. If this is what a friendship-centered convention is like, I need at least 8 more in my life every single year.
Here's to making even greater memories next year!
