Well the Japan adventure is almost over for us. Our last day at BitSummit was yesterday! We took part in the awards ceremony as one of the sponsor presenters. John went up to represent and presented the award for Excellence in Game Design to Gangs Of Space. There were nine awards in total.
Finally, we started the tear down of our booth by giving away the booth sign of our logo to our biggest fan at BitSummit. Natsumi-chan came by every day of BitSummit every few hours with more friends. She couldn’t keep away and we didn’t want her to part without keeping a part of us.
Our group had a great time meeting everyone at the show! Thanks to everyone who came by to play our games and to say hello. (To see the rest of the photos from Day 3, click HERE.)
Special thanks to Hiroko, Atsushi, Deven, and Yuko for their help!
Our second day at BitSummit, and first public day, at BitSummit was a success! Over a thousand people attended the show and walked through the aisles of indie developers. For the public days, the room is double the size of business day as you can see in the picture below.
Here is the exhibit hall before the general attendees came in.
After our team got the groove of the show, we took turns walking around the show floor to check out some of the games at other booths.
The Kyoto mascot, Mayumaro, gave us another visit and this time we had a bow off between John and Mayumaro to see who could go down the lowest. We got out-bowed.

Also out today, we have an encore by special prisoner: Duckshark! This re-release was chosen because of our current trip to Japan for BitSummit. The origin of Duckshark is actually from an earlier trip to Japan for another event. Dan, our fearless leader and art director, took a look at the kanji 両替 and thought that the second Chinese character looked like a duck! Thus the Duckshark was born.
Don’t miss your second chance to get this Duckshark so you can do this:
