A few big things happened this week, and we wanted to share them with you.
MIGS (Montreal International Game Summit) took place this week, Sunday to Tuesday. MIGS is sort of a mini-GDC, where we have international guests giving lectures, a large expo area with games, tech and services, and parties (of course).
During MIGS, we had some great productive meetings, and a healthy little bit of partying as well. The show is really great as it brings together people from around the world, but also allows Montreal developers and companies (of which there are very, very many) to meet when they might otherwise never do so.
Next up we have the CVAs (Canadian VideoGame Awards)! We were actually nominated for two categories: Best Design, and Best Innovation. This was super cool because we were up against games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, NHL17, Call of the Starseed, and Rainbow Six.
Unfortunately, we didn't win... BUT we got some of the loudest cheers when they announced the nominees and our name was called, so that was pretty cool. The awards show was quite cool still, and we got to dress fancy which is always nice.
This week, we also wanted to give a huge thanks to our community and to Steam for making the Midweek Madness sale happen last week. We had a great week in terms of players and sales, and we're really happy that people enjoy the new Free Play and Level Sharing features. We had over 4000 levels in the first few days, so that's really encouraging for us.
Anyway that's all for this week, we're continuing to fix a few bugs that are lingering from the update, and we'll update you soon :)
