Puuh, I’m quite a bit late with this one.
But I really don’t want to keep this awesome weekend to myself
On Thursday evening (9.4) my plane took to London. From there is was a 2h train ride to Cambridge.
Tom Kail, a good friend of mine and Playful Oasis member kindly hosted me for the whole stay. Thank you so much!
So, in the next morning Tom and me headed over to the Norwich Gaming Festival.
The festival took place at “the Forum”, that huge thing over there!
After a bit of tinkering, the Niche booth was all setup.
The festival started to fill up with more and more people.
A lot of families with small children attended the festival, so I spent most of the weekend explaining genetics to kids. Some of them played the game for over an hour!
And this mom played the game with her daughter for 3 hours in total! (They went to have lunch inbetween).
We even setup a little highscore display. The top record was 76 days, achieved by a 9 year old boy
There were lots of other cool games at the festival. On Sunday I took the time to play them ALL.
And this is my favorite! A 1-4 players collaborative kitchen simulator, called Overcooked.
In the evening, we hung out with fellow developers. We had a great time playing and inventing strange games.
Was great meeting you all! I’ll never forget the strange letter we wrote together xD
In the blink of an eye, the weekend was over and I had to say goodbye to my new friends.
Goodbye everyone, we’ll meet again for sure!
Being back in London, I had to wait for my plane.
I took a little walk around and visited the Harry Potter store at platform 9 3/4, Kings Cross.
Aaaand I’m back home again
