So, as you may know, our Radarkanoid arcade cabinet was at the Fitton Center for the Creative Arts (a local art museum here in Hamilton) for their Hindsight exhibit until the end of next month. In fact, the whole reason we made this particular cabinet was for the exhibit in the first place. Well, to celebrate not only this exhibit, but the big launch of this new event season for them, they threw a big party! They had people counting at the door, and well over 1000 people came (which I believe is their biggest season launch yet). It was pretty darned cool. That also meant that a lot of people got to play Radarkanoid at this event alone.
Cody, Kristy and I by the Radarkanoid machine
It was only Kristy and I here for this one (though Cody did swing by for 10 minutes near the end). Most of the team are from the surrounding area (the Greater Cincinnati Area) rather than being in Hamilton specifically. Lance was there, though, since a couple of his pieces were there, as well as some Artspace and Hamilton Mill people; so we were among friends if not surrounded by team members.
It was a great event! Some seriously great art and people were there. Since you're on our blog, though, I guess you want to hear more about Radarkanoid, though... I was able to get some pictures and video of people playing the machine, but only after I was back from practice and only while I was near the cabinet. I really wish I could have gotten more (or that Steve, Lance, or Natalie were there to take some awesome footage as well). Oh, by the way, we DO have an Instagram where you can see stuff like this (shameless plug): https://www.instagram.com/wraithgames/
We hope to be able to do more events of this nature here at some point. Until then we still do have at least three larger, convention-style events coming up. So that'll be cool. Hopefully one of us can edit the video we got from this one and get it up on YouTube soon, but we are still needing to get the new Collapsus trailer (and GIFs), and Radarkanoid trailer (and GIFs) as well, so we'll see.
As a little bonus, here's an interview we did with Slickster Magazine! Check it out: http://www.slickstermagazine.com/collapsus-physix-developer-interview/
