Coming up next month is the highly anticipated industry-only event, the Game Developers Conference (http://gdconf.com/)! And we're thrilled to say we'll be going in an official capacity for the very first time this year! Phoenix Online will running a booth at GDC Play (http://gdconf.com/events/gdcplay.html), an exhibition speficially for new and emerging developers to showcase their games to distributors, publishers, press, and investors!

Not only that,  Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller will also be featured at  Game Connection America (http://www.game-connection.com/gameconn/content/gameconnection-america) as one of the 15 finalists (out of 85 applicants!) for the "Best Project 2012" competition!  GCA, an event that runs the same week as GDC, is a chance for investors, publishers, dvelopers, and other industry professionals to meet up, network, and showcase their games.

We're incredibly excited for these opportunities to showcase our work so far on Cognition, and start introducing Erica Reed to the gaming industry at large! Adventure games are making a big comeback, and we're thrilled to be a part of that.

So, question: Do they have information we don't (via press releases or whatever), or are you guys nominated solely on plot synopsis, a couple screenshots, and the team's fantastic track record?

It was mostly game & company description, some "what make us different" stuff, and screenshots, etc. :) So, yeah, they didn't have much more information than you guys, really :)

You guys are so lucky you're going; I'm stuck here in Massachusetts to stock dairy and sell video games to people. Let me know how the event goes. And if you run into any Assassin's Creed stuff there, please take a photo and forward it to me; I'm an AC addict :)

I'd feel luckier if it wasn't 3:30 am and I wasn't fixing the Cognition build for tomorrow!! It's going to be a long day!

Vitek and I will be doing a small presentation around 11 am tomorrow at the GameConnection event!

See you there if you go!

It has been a great first day: Game Informer came by today and, well, check out how much Tim Turi loved the demo!!

Can't wait for tomorrow! We're getting great reactions, everyone loves the art style. And the news posts just may have a few glimpsed at new screenshots-- including gameplay images!
