GO423/Game On Symposium 2015

Yesterday we took part in the GO423/Game On Symposium 2015 at QUT in Brisbane, where we had Forts on show and available for attendees to play. As well as 1 v 1 multiplayer, we also had a ‘Who can build the tallest fort?’ competition, with the top five receiving Early Access Keys.

The game got a great reception, with players of all ages and genders excited to see what the game was all about. It also served as a valuable test run ahead of PAX Aus in a few months, as we got some great feedback which we will be implementing before then.
