I've just got back from the weekend and it was ace. The guys worked very hard and produced a top show, and for the first time in a while I was there just as a punter with my lad. We had a great time, and he was chuffed to bits winning the very first competition he ever entered, Under 16, Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed.
He beat the closest person by fully 20 seconds, and when he had another go a little later on, he beat his previous time by another second. The guys from Sumo Digital (A local company) were there with a Sneak preview demo of the game and were very approachable, great to talk to, and enthusiastic about it. I had a few goes of the game myself, and am looking forward to it's release, it's a real cracker.
There were tons of Indie games which I thoroughly enjoyed, and I shall be looking up quite a few of them to play again later on. Unfortunately, I missed all the talks, I was too busy playing games for a change. Rasberry Pi was there in force, surrounded by a horde of Beebs, with the chance to type in some simple programs which was a fun little diversion.
Just want to say a big thanks to all the guys who worked so hard to put the show on, We has a great time, Cheers!
