Burning Sky Games had a great start to the new year at the Music and Gaming Festival (MAGFest)! Our team kept a booth running for three days straight, allowing guests to play Runaway at any time of day (or night). It proved an incredible experience and one we hope to do again next year. Here’s what stood out to our rookie team the most!
If you haven’t heard from our Twitter, Burning Sky Games has been accepted to showcase at the Music and Gaming Festival (MAGFest) from January 3rd through January 6th! This four-day festival is hosted annually at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, MD (just 15 minutes from DC) and is home to an indie game showcase, cosplayers, and plenty of parties! What makes MAGFest so exciting for us is that its attendees are the ones we are creating Runaway for: people passionate about the intersection of video games and music. These will be the people who most appreciate our punk rock roots, and bringing Runaway to MAGFest will allow us to see firsthand how our target audience receives the game. Because the showcase room will be open from the minute the event starts to the minute it ends, guests will be able to stop by at any time of day (and night) to play the game. That means plenty of opportunities for people to play and plenty of time for us to learn as much about our game as possible!
