Last Weekend our Junior Marketing Manager, Erin McCarrie, attended the Too Many Games Convention celebrating Indie Games. Our content creator and video producer here at Beamable, Josh Schmidt, sat down with Erin to talk about her experiences on our Game Dev Podcast.
She wanted to share some of the photos she took at the convention, and her excitement about the indie games she interacted with.
“ It was such an invigorating experience all around. The thing that inspired me the most was the drive of the creators of Seahorse Saga. It originally started as a senior school project, and developed over the course of the pandemic into a full-fledged game!” She also was able to play Fish Heads, a one-button game that allows you to traverse through the depths of the sea dodging various creatures.
A live game that Erin interacted with was Retro Mania. “ They had a table featuring multiple copies of the game across various platforms like PlayStation and Xbox. The game was launched a year ago and features some great fighting characters.”
Erin shared some of the highlights of her experience on our Podcast with Josh like meeting Charles Martinet, Meeting Kim and Wood from BeatemUps, and even connecting with Miss Click. Below are some photos that encapsulate these features of her experience.
