XPO Gaming Convention Announced For October 2015 In Tulsa

XPO Video Gaming Convention October 2015Oklahoma has a number of conventions throughout the year, comics, technology, anime, and even some gaming. Now we have a new contender in the gaming convention sector, XPO. XPO held a press event today to announce the first ever XPO Video Gaming Convention happening in October of 2015. XPO plans to be a massive regional gaming convention that will attract the attention of local indie developers as well as multinational console and game development companies.

From small independents to global publishing brands, XPO will showcase and celebrate the gaming industry and the players who love it. Everyone will have the opportunity to network, present their latest achievements and maybe discover the next big independent developer, Streaming personality or biggest fan! Come and enjoy a few days and remember why you love this industry.

Partnering with XPO for the announcement, Tulsa based Bonozo Apps president Matt Harmon expressed his support for XPO and his hope that it will be a major draw for game developers. Matt was also kind enough to record and upload the press event for all of us.

This is an exciting prospect for Oklahoma. While the state will continue to host the Oklahoma Video Game Exhibition and the Retro Gamer hosted Super! Bitcon, this will be the first Oklahoma hosted event that will rival events like PAX.

We certainly look forward to learning more about XPO and who they can attract as vendors and panelists for the event next year.

Divine Knight Gaming Launches Demon’s Hex Kickstarter

Demon's Hex by Divine Knight GamingYesterday, Divine Knight Gaming launched the Kickstarter campaign for their long awaited game, Demon’s Hex. According to the Kickstarter, the game will be a cross platform online collectible token game with asynchronous multiplayer. Demon’s Hex will be releasing on the Web, mobile devices and the Ouya console.

Divine Knight is looking to raise $10,000 to further fund the development of the game, providing music and server costs. This will also qualify them for the Ouya matching fund through the Free the Games Fund that Ouya has set up.

While the game has a ways to go to be fully playable, they have released a playable prototype of the Demon’s Hex which can be played on their website.

Among the features that have yet to be added, is a single player RPG story mode. According to Divine Knight, the story mode will resemble in many respects their recent One Game a Month game, Alex’s Meadow RPG.

We will be watching the Kickstarter closely and keeping you updated as new developments arise. We will also begin a new program in which we will feature the Kickstarter and/or IndieGogo status boxes in our side bar to help further expose games that we find.

Full Disclosure: I am the Lead Developer of Divine Knight Gaming.
