On June 18 Max Gaming came to COSI (center of science and Industry) to show off Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps! COSI is having a exhibition called Game Masters that shows games throughout the years including bios of famous game developers including concept art and game design documents. If you’re in central Ohio go check it out! COSI was looking for local game developers to join the exhibition and to get some hands on feedback on the unreleased version of DHMC, we happily agreed.
On site where Jillian (Community manager) and Steve (Designer and programmer), and before they could finish setting up- there was a crowd of people gathering excited to see the game especially after seeing it was a Mech game. Once everything was open it was a consistent stream of people sitting down to try out the latest build. This was a very exciting day for us, as it was the first time anyone outside of the development team that had played and reacted to the game in its new engine.
The players mostly consisted of parents with their children. Lots of the dads nostalgic and commenting on how they haven’t played a mech game for a decade. Even though the build is still in alpha, everyone who played it had a great time fighting against our new AI opponents.
There was a lot of people who signed up for a chance to win copies of the game and are ready to jump into action again. Overall it was a fun show and we’re glad to get new fans and to people loving the game as much as us.
Stay tuned for more upcoming insight into the next release….
