Comic-con: Last Day! 2004-07-25 12:23:48 Reply

Today is the last day of Comic-con! Last chance to come check out the game and meet everyone!

The past three days have been amazing - it is great to finally meet with all the fans! I'll hopefully be posting pics and checking email tomorrow. Right now I'm in a hotel across the street from the convention center, and their "business center" only has one computer. I had to wait an hour this morning to use it, and as soon as I sat down, some guy came in who was in a rush to print a boarding pass for his flight. It's rediculous!

So anyway, I haven't had any chance to check email or anything like that, but I am moving from the hotel to the office (across town) tomorrow, and will have full access while I live out of the office for the next week.

Yesterday was our surprise give-away: Yellow springy alien antennas! They were actually waaaaay more successful than we anticipated. People snatched them up as quick as we could unpack them. We gave away 3,500 antennas yesterday, and will give away the remaining 1,500 today. We could easily have given out 20,000 of them yesterday if we had that many available. It was great seeing all the people walk around with antennas - I have pics of that too.

If you took any pics at Comic-con, feel free to post them in response to this thread! I'd love to see everyones' pics! I gotta head over to the convention center to help set up before the doors open in half an hour. If you are in the San Diego area, come on over to the convention center and say "hi!"


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Did you see T0MMY?


I'm your average Afro-American fetus. For example: I enjoy basketball, I'm rather good when I play too, but I'm much too busy scratching my horrific cracked skin these days.

Damn I wish I was there! How many people were interested and weren't there just to get the antennas? Any famous NG members you saw there?

Tom, did you meet the guys from Megatokyo and Penny Arcade? Or do you know them already?

Those sites are #2 & #3 on my list of daily visits, right after Newgrounds. The Penny Arcade guys might be able to give you a lot of publicity for Alien Hominid.
