BitSummit MMXIV (BitSummit 2)
March 9, 2014
Dadako attend Asia's biggest independent game developer festival in the city of Kyoto, Japan.
On Friday the 7th & Saturday the 8th of March Dadako had a table at Bit Summit MMXIV, the second year of this festival dedicated to independent games makers, like us!
We showcased two games; “Cat Slap” – our new title for iOS & Android, with a late summer penned as the release & “Tilterpillar + Sphero” – a technology demo where we use the Sphero device to control our already existing game.
The show was very interesting with many unknown games and known indie games alike. PC games were out in force, mostly shooters from the Japanese developers and RPG & platformers from international developers. Mobile games were thin on the ground, with Dadako being one of the few Mobile developers attending.
One of the most interesting aspects was watching people play our games. This gave us invaluable feedback as to how we need to alter menu systems and gameplay. Cat Slap didn’t have an intro, for example, as this led some punters to wonder why indeed they are playing the game. With a bit of story, we can solve this easily.
