Made it back from Anime Central (also known as ACEN), where a good time was had by all! We’ve been going to ACEN for many years now, and it is one of the largest anime conventions in the midwest – the unofficial count we heard was about 26,000 people this year.
As always, the costumes at ACEN were a highlight, and no genre or character was off limits – anime, video games, sci-fi, children’s cartoons, and of course: Pedo-Bear.
I don’t care if it comes out and no big developers make games for it. I don’t care if it comes out and nobody buys it because it’s “too expensive” or “isn’t in 1080 HD” or “all the motion makes me throw up”. I don’t even care if it has some horrible flaw like the 360′s RROD, or that it overheats after an hour. It’s still in a dev kit form, and there’s already a middleware and 3D drivers that let you play older Unity, Cryengine, Creative Engine, and Unreal Engine games in 3D.
We sold out of the pre-orders and the first round of amulets so quickly that we ran out of supplies! But don’t worry – we have everything you need to start making them again. Get one for yourself (or buy the set) over at our shop.
The amulet is almost done so we’ve made it available in the shop for Pre-Orders that will ship out in about 3 weeks. We’re still working on some finishing touches but you can see here a prototype that gives a pretty good approximation of what the final product will look like – The pendant and stone are each made by hand, then attached to a real leather cord.
When we go to conventions, we are always on the lookout for interesting cosplay! We did some interviews to highlight some of our favorite garb, people, and techniques from our one trip to Anime Milwaukee -
I love this game. There is nothing more fun than infecting a single person in South Africa with Fish AIDS and watching it spread throughout the world and killing all of humanity. It’s like being a mad scientist and having your phone become a DOOMSDAY WEAPON! MUHAHAHAHA!
