It's been quite a long time.
Some might say too long.
Drawing more than 26,000 attendees from across the world and throughout the industry, GDC is one of the biggest events in gaming – and this year, we'll be there! Having attended in both 2012 and 2013 to build buzz for City of Steam, we're really excited to be sending four members of the Mechanist team to San Francisco for GDC 2016.
From March 14th through the 18th, we'll be demoing the latest and greatest Heroes of Skyrealm build from Booth PL715 at GDC Play, the festival's showcase for up-and-coming developers. So if you happen to be near the Moscone Convention Center that week, stop by – it's the world's first chance to play Heroes of Skyrealm on phone and tablet!
And when they're not manning the booth, our San Francisco squad will be meeting with pros from throughout the gaming industry, new friends and old partners alike. As much as we rely on the Internet these days, conventions like this are critical to maintaining our global connections!
We're also excited to announce that we've put Heroes of Skyrealm in the running for Best in Play, a competition between developers GDC Play. While we're confident that Heroes of Skyrealm has what it takes to go all the way, we're excited to be in the running whether or not we make it to the final 8.
And if you can't make it to Booth PL715, either because you're otherwise occupied or you're nowhere near San Francisco that week, don't worry – rest assured that we'll be back later in March with full coverage of our convention experience, as well as a closer look at our demo build. Either way, we'll see you then!
