The 2012 AVCon was Graham Games’ first time attending, and we are definitely looking forward to returning in the future.
It was great to connect with local Adelaide developers and the few who like us made the trip from interstate. They were really welcoming and, having never been to AVCon before, the spectrum of platforms, game types and concepts was truly surprising. The only thing better than the developers was the participants. They quite willing to sit down at the game with only the verbal tutorial and get stuck in. The feedback we got will help us improve several aspects of the game but it also helped convince us we were ready for public beta and gave us confidence in things like our controls.
All in all, we left having had an awesome time and feeling creatively re-energised.
