Hello addicts and ignorant ones (those of you who are not addicted),
Today a short report on an event we visited last saturday; Indigo.
Indigo was a playable exposition, organized by the Dutch Game Garden (DGG), where around twenty indie games were showcased. DGG is an organization which stimulates (small) dutch game companies by introducing them to other game developers, investors, incubators and other interesting entities. Together with Florian and Martin I had an inspiring afternoon. We picked many brains and gathered loads of interesting information. We will be visiting more events like this in the future.

- A potential office. DGG has a building in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Around 40 game companies are accomodated there. In order to take another step towards professionalization we would love to have a small office there. But whether it will be possible (financially) remains to be seen. With a little more continuity of donations it just might be. Hate asking for money but there is no harm in trying i suppose ;)
- We have met three (yes, three) design artists who are very enthusiastic about joining our project. After a productive meeting last sunday they are now working on some first sketches for a new Call of Combat logo and some banners. If any of you would like to make some logo/banner designs as well that would be awesome, the more ideas the better! The three designers have the chance to prove themselves in the coming weeks. After the logo and banners they will start working on modelling and animations together with our current designers Frans and Martin.
- The game development is underway at high speed. Florian will post a development update next week.
