GDC 2010: Wrap-Up

Posted by Supergiant Games on March 14, 2010

GDC 2010 was our company debut and it went really well. We showed up with nothing but our game in a backpack and some cookies and ended up hitting the front page of Gamasutra, and previewing to lots of really insightful people including business luminaries like David Edery and Kim Pallister. We also got to show some really experienced game developers like Jake Kazdal (Zombie Studios’s art director) and Bruce Straley (Uncharted II’s game director).

Lots of our friends were around to check it out too, like Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincible) Bernie Yee (Cafe Mom), Amir Rahimi (Instant Action), Jim Vessella & Matt Ott (LucasArts), Darius Kazemi (Orbus Gameworks), John Graham (Wolfire Games), Ramiro Corbetta (Powerhead) and some people we hadn’t met until the show like Justin Hall (ngmoco) and Peter Jones from Retro Affect.

We got lots of good feedback on the game and can’t wait to show it to everyone!

    I can't WAIT till this game comes out! Will we get to feed our puppies and win cool new headbands as we play? It's so photorealistic! Who did the art? I wish I could draw like that. Great job guys :D.

    Jen, you did this art. YOU did. Your wishes are already realities.

    Dude say my name! I'm right there in the picture!

    It looks like they're trying to confirm the existence of wood.

    Oops! Added Austin Grossman :) Also, if you have no idea what Amer is talking about, it's a reference to the internet:

    >previewing to lots of really insightful people including business luminaries like David Edery and Kim Pallister ...who were gushing about how awesome our game is! Is what you forgot to add. :-) Congrats on the Pax10 thing!

    Thanks Kim! You were one of the first people to play it off team! :)
