Another great day at GenCon. Even more people than yesterday. Grueling but exciting. The demos are almost non-stop, and we’ve had several people come back, dragging their friends in-tow for a look. The new banner and 42″ screen playing screen casts are doing a good job of pulling people in, and then Jeremy and I grab them for demos. So many people have been, not just positive, but enthusiastic and excited. It’s an awesome experience to talk non-stop to people about what problems they’re trying to solve and how EpicTable can help them.
In case you can’t tell, this is kind of a big deal to me—my first time exhibiting at GenCon. It was a big deal just to attend GenCon as high school kid, back in the 80s, when my friends and I road-tripped to GenCon in Wisconsin. If someone had told that kid that he’d be exhibiting at GenCon to an excited bunch of gamers, he would have been blown away. And to be honest, the same is true of present-day me.
One really good thing that’s come from all this is that demoing to this many people has really validated the feature set. I’m convinced the feature set is right and sufficient for a release.
