Convention Season

One of our goals as a company for 2016 is to attend more conventions. Beamdog has reached a place where we're able to go out into the community, support local conventions, and meet our fans one on one. Our first convention this year was the Edmonton Expo. We didn't have a booth, but our artists and writers showed up to speak on panels, display their work, and hand out some swag for the upcoming Siege of Dragonspear!

Oh, and we also ran into Mark Meer cosplaying Baeloth Barrityl. NBD.

This month we also attended Edmonton's Pure Speculation Festival. There we displayed what Amber wanted to call the Beambooth, but visitors dubbed it the #Beamlounge (hashtag and
all). The #Beamlounge designation came about because we thought to bring a couch to the convention. This made us very popular among attendees and other exhibitors alike.

We had three computers running Siege of Dragonspear demos and ran a panel on video game design as well. It was great to meet fans and hear how much they loved the enhanced edition games and how much they were looking forward to the new expansion.

We're still finalizing next year's list of convention appearances, and when we do we'll post our schedule here on the Beamblog as well as our Facebook page.
