GamesCom 18/19

Once again, apologises for the Radio silence… Sort of been hectically quiet! Never a minute but all the same market seems to flutuate like a Yo-yo… Lets have a quick look at some bits n’bobs…

For the past 2 years I have been commissioned by Envy Create to Produce the Bandai Namco Entertainment stands at GamesCom. Its been a great journey today – although I have to admit ‘Exhibitions’ are not my forte. But I have watch with intrigue the stellar rise of the Gaming Market. I wanted to see how Content had progressed. What amazed me was the passion and dedication of the attendees to Gaming and the lengths they go to in order to meld reality and fiction seamlessly. I was also – and logically I shouldn’t have been – surprised by the number of wheelchair bound players were present; from all across Europe, and I suspect further afield, that came, despite all and any obstacle. So last year (2019) I vowed that we would improve the stands to be even more wheelchair accessible. This year I am keen to really work on localised engagement that should start the moment they join the queues – wider if possible…

2019 largely followed the format of 2018. Bits I enjoyed… Well anything that creates the Game environment. I know everyone wants to ‘play’ the game – but you only get 15 mins or so, having queued lordy knows how long… Gamers come in their CosPlay costumes and they look for a way in which they can better ‘enter’ their World. So I like it when there’s a chance just to push that door a little more. One day maybe I’ll be given the opportunity to put a Battering-Ram to it! We’ll see.

Below is the wee tableaux that we put together for Little Nightmares II. I rather liked this…
