We’re finally back from E3!
The show, which ran from June 14th – 16th in the LA Convention Center, was fantastic. It’s always great getting to demo Brut@l as well as talk to fellow developers, allowing us to see what is getting created both near and far as well as helping promote Brut@l to a wider audience.
Our booth was in the Sony section and there were some great titles around us, as well as some very passionate developers ready to show their game to the world.
As well as getting to demo Brut@l to countless journalists, content creators and fellow developers we were also the recipient of several ‘Best of E3’ nominations. The team over at Hardcore Gamer nominated Brut@l for not one, not two, but THREE different awards – Best New IP, Best Indie Game and Best RPG. Sadly we were pipped to the post for all three of these, but even being in the running for these prestigious titles was an incredible feeling.
On top of this we also received praise from Game Informer, naming us in their Best Indie Games of E3 list, along with IGN calling us out as an Awesome Game You Probably Missed. We also got two thumbs up from IBeatItFirst and GameTruck.
Our coverage didn’t stop there, we also made an appearance on the Sony Live Stream with our friend Anthony Carboni. Watch the video below to see the first level of Brut@l as well as some details on progression, zombie killing and potion crafting!
On top of this we were lucky enough to be visited by Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios for Sony. What we didn’t expect was for Shuhei to have his camera at the ready and share a quick description of Brut@l to his followers. Of course we were more than happy to oblige!
Overall our experience at E3 was fantastic, getting to meet so many people passionate about making, promoting and discussing games is always a rewarding experience! That said we’re happy to be back from the heat wave of LA for now, our Scottish heritage can’t take that much sun!
Incase you missed it in our Live Cast, or other E3 news, Brut@l is now officially in submission with Sony. What does that all mean? Well, all going smoothly we’ll have a date announcement to share in the coming weeks – which is very exciting! Until then, keep in touch with us on Twitter and Facebook and let us know your favorite E3 moments from 2016!
Until next time.
