Past gaming events: devcom 2019 (quick overview with social media)

While devcom 2019 is still not over yet, my two-days journey to the Cologne venue with its many interesting talks and people is, but there’s still some time to give a very short overview of what happened, also on social media channels.

Actually, the only updates were on Twitter, and as Facebook doesn’t seem to synchronize (as it does with the most recent WordPress posts), here’s just a summary of what went on throughout the two days Sunday and today, Monday, August 18-19. Keep in mind that there will be a full cover story with lots of pictures. But with gamescom starting tomorrow, this won’t be for some time. If you want to stay up to date, then please check EMR’s Twitter page (if I manage to squeeze in some tweets in between a very tight press appointment schedule).

August 18

On my way to @Devcom_conf,looking forward to seeing lots of interesting talks with very interesting people like @DavidBFox, @falkoloeffler.

Sitting together with the nice @AdventureTreff folks during the #devcom2019 talk and listening to some great #Lucasfilm anecdotes on stage

Another great talk now at #devcom19 about #MonsterBoy and #TheCursed Kingdom: the original meets the remake.

Now #devcom19 talk about @GearboxOfficial’s #Borderlands3: Building the #narrative

After an amazing #Borderlands3 #devcom talk, my chat with @GearboxOfficial’s @jythri (Randy Varnell) and @2K’s @Roisinmdoyle was also great.

Played Robot Pumpkin Games’ #textadventure #game #TheInnsmouthCase at #devcom which is a great mix of #Lovecraft and #comedy

Now talk by @CharlesCecil at #devcom about @revbot’s (RevolutionSoftware) #scifi #adventure #BeyondaSteelSky2,joined by @AdventureTreff

Final (informal) appointment of today at #devcom with @mixtvisiongames,@studiofizbin was a lot of fun and a good preparation for #gamescom

In a few words: an amazing developers conference with great talks, but not enough time to see everything and speak with everyone, let alone play all kinds of cool indie games. Also a great opportunity to meet the big players like 2K or Ubisoft. To be continued… after gamescom!
