Denver Comic Con 2017 Hall of Games
Denver Comic Con has come and gone, but there’s still coverage coming in from this event. Of all the things to see at Denver Comic Con, the Hall of Games was my favorite place to be. Here’s a look at the Denver Comic Con 2017 Hall of Games.
It might have been a small section in the main convention floor, but the Hall of Games packed a punch when it came to entertainment. There were several independent game developers showing their creations at this event. It was beyond exciting to meet them and play their games.
There were companies like Raw Fury, Serenity Forge, and Clever Crow Games there to show off their creations. It was a collection of different and diverse indie games, all meant to give you a different experience.
Raw Fury, publisher of the highly anticipated game The Last Night, was showing their award winning game, Kingdom and their recently released game, Tormentor X Punisher. Kingdom is amazing and inventive, and children loved playing and watching this game. Currently the second Kingdom game is in development for all you fans out there. Click HERE for my review of Kingdom and click HERE for my interview with it’s creator Thomas van den Berg. Tormentor X Punisher was created by Beau Blyth, creator of Samurai Gunn and Hyper Light Drifter. Beau is also a Forbes 30 Under 30. It was super cool to meet and talk with him.
Also, Serenity Forge was there displaying five of their games. The two most popular games with the crowds would have to be Mystic Melee, which is coming out soon for early access on Steam, and The King’s Bird which is due to be released next year. Both of these games I am excited for. Stay tuned for the Mystic Melee early access release on Steam!
Plus, there was the pixel art game A Dragon Named Coal being shown by Clever Crow Games. This is the story of a dragon who can’t fly, so he instead wants to become a knight. It’s so cute and the pixel art is amazing. I really can’t wait for this game to come out. It’s so cute! Stay tuned for updates.
However, my most anticipated game has to be Heartbound by Pirate Software. It’s the story of a boy named Lore and his dog Baron and their adventures through time and space. Baron one night goes missing and it’s up to Lore to find him. The greatest part about this game is the decisions that Lore makes not only changes the story, but shapes who Lore is as well. I’m so excited to see how this story develops. You can find the demo here: http://gopiratesoftware.com/games/Heartbound/
There were several other games being shown as well like A Purrtato Tail by Red Vonix and Bebop and Tempo and Angry Hangar. Let’s just say, once people discovered the treasures that were in the Hall of Games, it was pretty busy there the entire time.
Stay tuned for more Denver Comic Con coverage!
