Gamescom 2014

On early morning of Saturday 16th of August after a good cup of coffee, we drove to Cologne for the Gamescom 2014. Gamescom is a convention for game developers. Traditionally, the major developers concentrate on promoting their big triple A games at Gamescom, but at this year's event a wave of indie games and new services such as the Occulus Rift drew as much attention as blockbuster franchises. Especially for us this was great to see. After we parked our car, we went strait to hall 9 with the indie games. We saw some great ideas. The market for indie development is upcoming. This is a good sign for us. In the afternoon we went to the big boys booths. Sony, Xbox and EA. We had a great time witnessing all those new and upcoming games. We played with an Occulus Rift at the War Thunder booth, that was some experience. It was absurd. You know that you are on the ground going nowhere, but your mind thinks that you are moving. It was sheer fun. On the way back home we said to each other: 'Next year we'll be back!'
