So much happened at Pax Prime and we are still decompressing here at Slick so we wanted to cover another very cool event that we were lucky enough to be a part of. The Gamespot and Giant Bomb party! This was an awesome event that took place in a lounge super close to the convention center and we were invited with the help of those super cool folks over at the Indie Mega Booth, who always hook developers up with a great time.
Aside from being a really neat venue, this was the perfect place to see players interact with Viking Squad in a totally different environment. It was away from the giant whirlwind/meat-grinder of Pax prime and close to food, chairs and super friendly staff.
It was a great place to alternate our show team when someone needed a recharge and it worked out super well even with the craziness of Pax constantly going on only a couple blocks away.
Another thing that this venue gave us was the chance to talk to fellow developers in a setting that was much more casual. Insights for each other’s games were shared and everyone’s experience benefited greatly from it. Pictured above is Harry Hsiao (Left) and Dale Kim (Middle) discussing our lane mechanics while their own game Brigador from Stellar Jockeys is being played right behind them!

So even more cool Pax stuff was already piled on us while we were there. We couldn’t of ran such an amazing booth without the incredible help of everyone here at Slick and our amazing audio masters over at Power Up Audio. It was a crazy trip, well worth taking.
And just in case you weren’t aware, we’ll be dev-streaming today! come on over at 4pm-6pm PST and check out some of the very cool stuff we are building for Viking Squad! The whole team is tehr ready to answer questions and say hello! Be sure to bring your pals while we create our super fun brawler right before your very eyes!
So that’s it for this week! Hope you enjoyed another look at our awesome Pax Prime 2015 experience and until next time, remember to keep those spirits high and those axes sharp!
This week we are getting ready to hit up PAX Prime 2015. We’ve been preparing the build and getting a few goodies to give away at the show. It should be a fun weekend for sure! Be sure to stop by if you are in the Seattle area. There are plenty of things to see even if you don’t have a badge to the main exhibit. I hear Giant Bomb is throwing their own shin dig across the street.
If you drop by the booth you will get a chance to try the first area of the game, which gives you a taste of the exploration, character customization and combat. Maybe you can even beat one of our bosses!
And we’ll be doing a Dev-Stream today as always! Stop by at 4pm PST to hang out with the team as we get ready to hit up Seattle and work on Viking Squad! We’ve been having a great time meeting new people and connecting with regulars so get your pals and come hang out!
And another week brawls on by here at Slick! Thanks for stopping by t ocheck out our progress and until next time. Keep those convention trips organized!
This week is a quick one because we are hard at work getting our demo ready for the Seattle Indie Expo! It’s a free, one day event on Sept. 1st at Melrose Market Studios. It’s just a few blocks from PAX (directions HERE), so if you are in the neighborhood be sure to drop by and check us and a ton of other great games out! Our pal Auston Montville of TOO DX is bringing his super fun and frantic Sportsball game to the event as well! Hope to see you guys down there!
And If you guys are heading down to PAX this year be sure to hit up the very awesome Indie Mega Booth and get a chance to play Red Hook Studios‘ awesome game Darkest Dungeon! Those guys are some of the best in the business and have a very awesome game on their hands.
And if you are around the Mega Booth you’ll be sure to find those champs over at Power Up Audio who are working on a TON of great games (ours included).
So that’s it for this week! If you are down in Seattle on the Monday be sure to come check us out! We’d love to hear what you think about what we have so far! Until next time, everyone have an awesome time at PAX Prime!
We’ve been scrambling for the past few days to get our third dev-blog video ready, as well as all our PAX preparations. This video one shows a bit more of the gameplay, as well as some multiplayer split screen goodness. We’re making an announcement in the video as well, but you’ll have to watch the video for that. :)
Also, come check us out at the Penny Arcade Expo! You can try out Scrap Metal, and we’ll have some cool swag to give away as well. Look for booth #3106 (directly across from the PAX10 stand)
Welcome back followers of the fearsome! It’s Caley here this week and I’ve got a fun post on a tool we use to tune the in-game economy of Viking Squad (not the real economy, Nicks making a different tool for that). Game economies, and real ones, are always hard to nail down as you can never fully predict […]
