Well, this post was supposed to be done and up last night, but I ran out of time. I’d finish it now… but I’m hung over, slightly, and there’s free breakfast downstairs.
Quick update though: Yesterday was long, but good. Saw 11 titles from Paradox, and I’ve got a nother 4 or 5 left to see today. It’s going to be a good year for those guys I think, especially with their new online portal Paradox Connect driving new IP’s and franchises (and some old ones for them). I’ll post a proper round-up soon.
Last night was also very fun, we went to a local bar, took it over, and pretty much just hung out and chatted all night. I thought about trying to hit on one of the female developers, but every time I looked over they were just surrounded by guys who apparently had the same idea.
There’s not a company quite like Paradox – on the one hand they’re a videogames publisher, and I think on some levels all videogames publishers act the same way due to the fact that they have the same goals. But Paradox is definitely one of the more open and friendly publishers you will ever come across. CEO Fredrik Wester is also a legend, and it’s always a pleasure waiting to hear what he’ll say next.
Until next time.
