Summer is on its way and Binary Cocoa is thawing out its plans for the OpenWest conference at the Utah Valley University on May 7th through the 9th. They will be packing up the arcade cabinet and making the road trip down from beautiful Idaho to the city for the technology packed weekend. Geeks and nerds…rejoice, and please bring your soldering guns.
This year were hoping to up the ante by presenting BOCO, our latest release with those that will pass by our booth. We have come up with an elegant solution to the server handling and have made the game workable on touch devices. Last year we presented Hexapod Defense Force, which turned out to be a hit but was somewhat limited because it was a one player game. BOCO is a two player game that we hope people will have a grand time battling it out against each other.
We are also going to be doing a presentation where we will be discussing Löve 2D and how to get started working on games. Last year’s presentation can be found on Youtube:
There are many surprises that we have planned to spread the word about what we’re doing, but I won’t mention them here just to keep the element of surprise up our sleeves. It’s not going to be a clown throwing pies. We can tell you that much already.
We hope everyone gets the chance to come say hi to us at our booth! If you find yourself at the conference in May (hopefully willingly), then keep us in mind.
