Right now legendary game designer Ron Gilbert (Monkey Island, amongst many others) is on stage opening the show and for the past hour we have been wandering the show floor taking in the extremes of presentations available. From the gigantic of the Wargaming booth, to the uniqueness and passion of the indies.
The indies, particularly local game studios are getting a great chance to showcase their hard work, beginning last night at a VIP party run by the Game Developers Association of Australia, and continuing on today with some lavish booths dedicated to each indi hopeful.
Later today we will venture down to the other sides of geekdom with the tabletop, card, console, PC and board gaming areas as well as.
As you can see from the pics, in some cases vendors are still pulling things together at the last moment, but generally things are running very smoothly with an air of excitement and that new-game smell. Lot's more to come.
