@Deedlit... I'd love to see a teddy bear-sized plushie Tilo, hopefully in the fullness of time ;)

@EvilKing... yes there were gloves, but they mysteriously disappeared, which is puzzling because the rest of the outfit was untouched! :?: Though Seith hasn't committed to E3 or another conference, I'm fairly sure that we'll be there. If you can make it, that would be terrific! :D

@Varethas... We were really busy so we just got out on the first evening, while Seith and Stephane went to a dinner with Microsoft executives and a handful other indies. The rest of the GOAT team (Paul, Cyrille and me) took a look at the center of Cologne, where they have a wonderful cathedral and museums. We had pizza and a walk by the river... this part of Cologne is really nice, and the people we met were friendly and helpful! Cosmogonies (aka Cyrille) took this photo of the cathedral in the dark:

@David: I could so see Tilo scampering about a haunted old Rat Kingdom Cathedral...
I'm glad to see you enjoyed your stay there - had any of you ever (been) flown out to something like Gamescom before? also, if you know your games, that cathedral totally reminds me of Vagrant Story...

If you guys come to a conference here in the U.S. I'll try my hardest to be there. The skype thing didn't work for me, mostly because of the time difference.

@Varethas... yes, I could easily imagine Tilo scampering around a rat cathedral or temple, with a crypt... lots of cobwebs and dust because it isn't used much... or because it was built by another species before the rats took it over. (I suspect that the GOAT rats don'tt go to church often) ;)

@Jeremiah... it would be terrific to have you with us at a conference next year. This will be much closer to the game launch, and likely to be more crucial to GOAT's success. I don't know Seith's plans at all, but here are the dates of the big events (mostly in the US) in 2015:

PAX South, Penny Arcade Exhibition South, Texas, USA, 23-25 January
GDC, Games Developers Conference, San Francisco, USA, 2-6 March incorporating:
-----IGS, Independent Games Summit, USA, San Francsico, USA, 2-3 March
-----IGF, Independent Games Festival, USA, 4-6 March
PAX East, Penny Arcade Exhibition East, Boston, USA, 6-8 March
E3, Electronic Entertainment Expo, Los Angeles, USA, 16-18 June
Comicon*, San Diego, USA, 8-12 July
Gamescom, Cologne, Germany, 5-9 August
PAX Prime, Seattle(?), August/September(?), USA, dates and location uncertain
TGS, Tokyo Games Show, Tokyo, Japan, 17-20 September(?), dates uncertain
Indiecade, Los Angeles(?), October(?), USA, dates and location uncertain

*Comicon is mainly a celebration of comics of course, but it has games section too so I included it for completeness and because the dates (at a stretch) dovetail with E3

Quite a lot depends on how quickly GOAT's development progresses but I'd say:
-35% probability for E3 in Los Angeles
-70% probability for Gamescom in Cologne (again)
-20% probability for Pax Prime in Seattle (location and dates unconfirmed ?)
-35% probability for Indiecade in Los Angeles (location and dates unconfirmed ?)

I'd guess that Seith will probably do Gamescom in Germany and one event in the US.

... Seith emailed me a nice mention in IGN yesterday: http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/08/23/ ... -of-a-tale

...and here's a piece on IndieHangover a few days ago: http://www.indiehangover.com/gamescom-t ... -of-a-tale

...as Gamescom comes to an end -late on the final evening- some fans borrow Tilo to take photos (well, his head anyway) ;)

Image

...we pack things up!

...and, with just about everything ready to go, here's a final photo of the lute leaning against Tilo's travelling box :D
