One of the Biggest Gaming Conventions in Southeast Asia
The month of October has been one of the most anticipated months for both gamers and e-sports enthusiasts in the Philippines. Why? This is mainly because the Esports and Gaming Summit (ESGS), dubbed as “One of the Biggest Gaming Conventions in Southeast Asia” with over 42,000 attendees this 2019, is held during this time of the year annually and we, Play Platter Games, with the assistance of Indie Fiesta are grateful to have been part of this event!
For three straight days, October 25-27, 2019, hundreds and thousands of people passed by the Indie Fiesta booth at the SMX Convention Center to try out locally made games and to interact with game developers themselves. Among the games up for play is Space Dogs!
Pawsome Feedback that means so much to us!
“Ang cute cute naman ng aso!” (This dog is so cute!)
“Ang ganda ng art! Sino nag-illustrate?” (The art is so good! Who is the designer?)
“Ang saya laruin nito! Dapat masubukan din ito ng mga officemates ko!” (This is so fun! My officemates should try this game too!)
These are some of the phrases commonly said throughout the three-day event. As the game developers, we are overjoyed to see so many people crowding over our booth, wanting to see what the commotion was about, and patiently waiting for their turn to try Space Dogs!
Friendly Competition and Bonding Experiences
One of the highlights of this event is when an eight-year-old boy got addicted to the game and was actively challenging first-time players to matches. With his bright mind, he was able to outsmart so many people. What’s funny is that at one point, a stranger approached our booth and specifically requested if he can have a match with the all-time champ. He wanted to avenge the defeat of his friend! Things couldn’t have gotten any more intense and engaging than that! Talk about strangers becoming friends (or maybe friendships being destroyed!)
With that said, we’ll surely be making more appearances in future events! See you all in our future events as we hope to bring even more laughter and a unique bonding experience for everybody! Stay Paw-some!
