Last night I returned from Game Developers Conference 2011 in San Francisco. It was a great experience and it turned out quite differently from how I expected. While we were there, we wound up showing Trade Secret and Tellus off to the people at Unity (both games were built using that engine).They were very supportive and generous, allowing us to show our games off to other people, using the computers they had set up at their pavilion. I spent a majority of my time on the expo floor there, showing off the game to tons of people, receiving a lot of positive feedback.
Words are not enough to convey how grateful the Trade Secret team is to the folks at Unity. They really helped us promote our game to the people we needed to, putting it into the spotlight so it can help us land us jobs.
I had a lot of fun at the conference itself, and all the parties, meeting a lot of cool people that I hope to see again next year.
