Our Ohio Game Developer Expo Experience

Here is our experiece of the awesome Ohio Game Developer Expo we just attended!


Hey everyone! Ohio Game Developer Expo (#ogde2014) was a great weekend, I am really glad to have been able to make it.
We had a huge Louisville presence there with 6 Game Dev Lou attendees!
(Game Dev Lou is Louisville Kentuckys Indie Game Dev Community)
Someone even mentioned “there are a lot of you here!” when we said we were from Louisville.

Other #GameDevKY peeps were there too, like John, Lori, and Leonard from Super Soul / Power On Games / Run Jump Dev who were showing off Super Soul’s new game Speakeasy at their booth.
I also spotted Zon (creator of Contested Space) from Bloomington’s bignight who we met at Sigma Play back in may, and again at Free Range Arcade.



We also discovered a really good breakfast place called Super Chef’s, I would recommend it if you are ever in the Columbus Area!

The thing I enjoyed most was meeting lots of regional indies and seeing what they are working on.

Below is a a huge group of vine videos Eric and I took while trying out the games.

Enjoy and let me know if you have photos you would like to add, I can give you access to the flickr account to upload them.

Eric and I also met Michael Aschenbrenner (RCMADIAX) a Wii-U developer who we had never met before and had played our game Kick Bot on the Chrome Web Store, how cool is that?
