Hey everyone!

Yesterday we spent the whole day at the Microsoft Game Dev Camp.I must say that we had a great time there!
Kudos for Microsoft for hosting this event.

We had the chance to meet great people and find out about exciting projects being developed in Portugal.
It's really inspiring to meet new teams and see how the industry is growing step by step in this corner of the world.Unfortunately there aren't many game dev events in Portugal, so it's always exciting when something like this takes place.The sessions were very cool, with the speakers giving insights about different areas: Development, Game Design, Visual Arts, Go Big (marketing, tactics and production) and Inspire.

Of course that we also showed "Mechs & Mercs" on the demo area, and the reception was really good!
We gathered a lot of useful feedback from fellow developers and gamers who tried the game.
There were some small suggested features that we're now implementing in the game.

And because we don't want to end this post without showing something new, check out the updated bar below. You can see the two dealers standing around the table. The mercenary dealer and the mech dealer.

That's it for today, have a great weekend!

Any computer used for gaming should be able to handle it. There's a ton of visual effects that can be enabled and disabled for performance.
The game does require a 3d card, which means that laptops with onboard intel cards might not be able to run it.
