As Inti Creates, we have been going to events in North America for many years now, however, during the times we did make the trip abroad, those trips have been to big industry events such as E3, GDC, and the like. To this point, we had never been to any sort of fan event before as Inti Creates where we had tables, panels and the like, but that changed last weekend when we attended Too Many Games last weekend in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
We were invited by the convention to not only attend, but have a large booth on the show floor, run a panel, and participate in an autograph signing session, and that’s exactly what we did! While big industry events like E3 are an amazing experience, Too Many Games gave us a chance to really showcase our games and connect with fans outside of Japan in way that we were never able to do before. The responses from fans were as enlightening as they were humbling and heartwarming.
Since Too Many Games went over so well, we can all but assure you that we as Inti Creates will be attending more fan events like this outside of Japan in the future. Where and when those will be though, has yet to be determined. If you are interested in having us as guests at your convention, feel free to contact us about it.
Now, enjoy some photos from our Too Many Games adventure! ^o^v
A sign of things to come…get it? 😉
International Affairs Coordinator Matt Papa (dats me), CEO Takuya Aizu, and Programmer Enrique Hernandez-Stromberg put on a panel where we talked about all things Inti Creates. We also made two announcements, the first of which was the 120,000 downloads milestone for Gunvolt.
The second announcement we made was that Line stickers for Azure Striker Gunvolt are now available on the Line app!
Enrique gives a player the lowdown on Mighty No. 9.
Our amazing assistant Jes helped man the booth all weekend! Also, that sweet Beck hat was a handmade gift from a very sweet fan. She gave one to each of us! Thank you! ;w;
CEO Takuya Aizu poses in front of the Inti Creates booth with an awesome pixel painting by Squarepainter, which we all signed and was given away as a raffle prize at his table.
After the panel, this super nice fan gave us Beck and Gunvolt bead sprites from Mighty Gunvolt! 😀
Aizu-san was feeling cheeky, and asked me if we should demo Gal*Gun II for a little while during the con. I said “Uhhh…YEAH!” This was the first time Gal*Gun has ever been officially shown off at a North American event, EVER! People seemed to really like it! 😀
Gunvolt posters, and a limited edition t-shirt (print run of only 50) were given away at Too Many Games!
A happy fan with a rad beard posed for an awesome picture with us during our autograph signing.
After the convention was over, we stopped by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where we channeled our Rocky fighting spirit and ran up the museum steps!
…and that’s that! We hope you enjoyed the pictures, and that we will see you at an event in the future!
Keep on Striking!
