The opening ceremony of BitSummit 2014.


 

We got up early this morning to finish our set up before doors opened at 10AM for the media. The main items to work on were the game demos and organizing our merchandise. Luckily, we had some help from our super helpers: Hiroko, Deven, Atsushi and Yuko!

Around 11:30AM our producer, John Baez, took the stage to speak about our attitude and approach towards working in the game industry. It was streamed live, but we have a recording of it as well. But you’ll have to wait until the show ends for our recap video to see it!

In the afternoon, we started selling our Castle Crashers knights, Castle Crashers mobile straps and Behemoth keychains (including the Knight design from Castle Crashers, Hatty from BattleBlock Theater, and Alien Hominid). We will be selling tomorrow and Sunday as well–while supplies last!

BitSummit organizers ended the day with a cocktail party to allow developers to mix and mingle with their peers. Yes, there was lots of Japanese food and cocktails to go along with the music and partying!
