Thank you, Phoenix. Your city was warm and hospitable (and really warm…) Crit Hit 3 hosted our gaming session for the weekend. They were also hospitable (and air-conditioned). Jake and I had a great time running Conspire, Catalyst, and Drink! for our new fans. It’s great to prove CPG can hop on a plane for a con and reach a wider audience.
Hello Cherry Picked Fans! We’re heading down to Phoenix for Crit Hit 3. We’re spreading the conspiracy by playing Conspire and Catalyst from our vendor booth during the day. At night, we’ll be playing Drink! at the bar (come join us so it’s not sad drinking). The vendors’ hall is open to everyone, even if you don’t have a badge. Every Phoenician should enter the air-conditioned embrace of the DoubleTree Hilton this weekend.
We know, KublaCon was a while ago. There’s a lot to unpack, both figuratively and literally. Cons are a somewhat overwhelming experience for an indie studio, especially if you are trying to pay for the trip through a dealer’s booth. There is an exhausting amount of social interactions running the gamut from truly enjoyable to downright depressing. There’s also a palpable tension amongst vendors and designers around earnings and sales. We wanted to discuss the con, share our highlights, and talk about how we can improve our fans’ experiences going forward. The CPG crew has put a lot of thought into this, hence the time gap (we also moved the CPG office/Alex’s apartment across Seattle – our games aren’t hidden behind a couch anymore).
