GDEX 2017 was a wild ride.
The team drove in Friday evening: Matt and Zac from Cleveland, and Marisa from Portsmouth. We arrived at the Greater Columbus Convention Center and began setting up the booth! Our goal was to bring our living room to the convention, and, thanks to some gracious friends, we were able to drag a couch, a 55″ TV and two full-sized costumes to Columbus!
On Sunday morning, GDEX was in full swing. The BOMBFEST booth was active for nearly the whole weekend with players experiencing our new environments, music, sound effects, and gameplay improvements. As far as we can tell, everyone who gave BOMBFEST a try had a good time! We had every generation present at our booth and plenty of happy faces.
Come Saturday we hosted our Tournament! With 37 entrants and a constant crowd, this was the biggest gathering for BOMBFEST all weekend! We hosted a messy elimination tournament with 2 player, 3 player, and 4 player matches to determine who would walk away with both our solid gold painted BOMBFEST trophy and a free T-shirt.
After 22 grueling matches, a champion was decided! Landon was crowned GDEX 2017 Tournament Champion and received his rewards. Congratulations again, Landon Crawford! For your first day with BOMBFEST, you did a pretty good job!
All in all, GDEX 2017 was a success for BOMBFEST. Our booth drew in scores of players and onlookers all weekend, the tournament was a blast, and the game was even awarded the GDEX 2017 Crowd Favorite Award. We’re excited to continue bringing BOMBFEST to eager players and we’re looking forward to launching the game on Steam soon.
