OGDE 2015 Post Mortem

This year, Super Soul attended OGDE as a part of the game development group RunJumpDev, who was a sponsor for the event. Throughout the weekend, the RunJumpDev booth alternatively showed off work from both Super Soul, as well as Ralph VR’s Daydream Blue. On the final day, mildmojo also set up a guerrilla booth for his fascinating alternative controller exhibit Disc Jockey Jockey.


OGDE is a regional exposition for game developers in the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana area, and there were a lot of great development teams from the area showing off all of their work. In addition to that, we were able to meet a decent selection of new people. The conference is a great opportunity to network with other developers, show off the work that we’ve managed in the past year, and to just see some great games from regional developers.

Free Range Arcade

Last Friday I headed up to the Free Range Arcade event in Bloomington, Indiana.  Our friend and sometimes collaborator Tom Birge headed up with me as John and Shea were out of the earth’s gravitational force.  We stopped by Louisville to pick up Alex of Two Scoop Games and set sail for Bloomington.  30 miles out of Indianapolis we realized a flaw in our trajectory (don’t mute your phone when Siri is giving voice directions!) and cut west on state highway 252. We arrived in Bloomington around 5:30PM.

John, Tom and Tim Present: THE LEXITRON

At the Louisville Arcade Expo a few weeks back John joined fellow game enthusiasts and Lexitron designers Tom Birge and Tim Knowlton (designer Chase LaCas wasn’t able to attend) to discuss how and why RunJumpDev built the Lexitron–Lexington’s own custom-built arcade cabinet featuring games from local developers.  Here’s a sample of what they discussed, and thanks again to the Louisville Expo organizers for giving RJD the opportunity to show off its proudest creation!


Ohio Game Developers Expo Post mortem

Last weekend we headed up to Columbus, Ohio for the inaugural Ohio Game Developer Expo.  We did not have much info on the event, we were not sure if it was the first year or not, and we had no idea how many people would be attending.  So we just winged it.  Here is our takeaway from the event.

Ohio Game Developer Expo

This past Saturday, December 7th, we headed up to Columbus, Ohio for the inaugural Ohio Game Developer Expo.  We set up a table and demoed our newest game in development, Astronaut Kitty Boom Boom.  We had a blast, met some great people and saw some interesting games.  I intend to follow up this post with another of what we did right and wrong in a sort of expo postmortem.

Lexington Comic Convention

Super Soul continued it’s Compromised Muti-player tour this weekend at the Lexington Comic Con.  Being one of the only game development companies at the convention gave the team a unique opportunity to stand out and get players who were on comic book overkill to relax and play Compromised Multiplayer.   We are in booth 118 tonight and tomorrow so be sure to stop by and see us.

Based on feedback from players, a number of improvements have been made to the game since last weekend’s Louisville Arcade Expo: Read more

Louisville Arcade Expo Recap

Standing in the middle of the Pavilion at the Louisville Arcade Expo, surrounded by dozens of classic arcade games and pinball machines, your senses are overwhelmed with the urge to play a game. The lights from the machines cast a flickering glow across the room, and as you walk around the pavilion you occasionally pick up on a tune from a game you loved from your childhood, bringing with it a flood of warm memories of the dawning of the video game era.  Although this was only their third year, the Louisville Arcade Expo keeps getting bigger and better. For the low price of $15 for one day, and $35 for the weekend, all games were set on free to play, offering gamers of all flavors unlimited entertainment. Read more

Compromised Road Tour Continues – Louisville Arcade Expo this Weekend

If you consider yourself a hardcore gamer (and what self respecting kid from the 80’s and 90’s doesn’t) attending the Louisville Arcade Expo this weekend should be on par with the feeling you got when you finally beat Mike Tyson in Punchout.

This is truly one event you won’t want to miss as there are going to be over 100 pinball and arcade machines set on free to play, classic consoles from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, classic computer games from the Apple II, Commodore 64 and others, and to top it off, kids 10 and younger get in free with an adult admission!
