Hello!

It's been a few weeks since the announcement of my new upcoming game, Watch This Space, and progress is being made to bring it to Early Access! Last weekend I presented it at the Boston Festival of Indie Games, and had a great time showing it to festival-goers and watching how it hooked players both young and old.

The Boston Festival of Indie Games (BFIG) is one of my favourite game events of the year, because it's the perfect balance of relaxed and down-to-earth developers, with a wide variety of attendees and a crowd that's busy yet not overwhelming. It's a very friendly festival, and a great place for the first outing of Watch This Space.

However, I don't have a large development budget for Watch This Space, and setting up a booth at a festival can be a costly exercise. I decided to get creative - and to try and build a booth with materials from the dollar store, some milk crates, and an old sewing machine I'd rescued from the side of the road.

Making of

I used some foam board and light strips to create a title that stood out, while plastic tablecloths served for seat covers. The result was a lounge that looked attractive and offered plenty of seating for a heavily-multiplayer game!

The feedback from players was outstanding, and overall the event was a real success. Here's a quick video to show how it all went:

Alongside Watch This Space, I've been splitting my time working on 39 Days to Mars. Specifically, it's coming to the PlayStation 4 this autumn! You can read the announcement post on the PlayStation Blog here:
