Where has The Unfinished Swan been?

The Unfinished Swan is almost ready go, and we’re all super excited. I just wanted to do a quick recap of where the game has traveled along the way.

Sense of Wonder Night 2009 – Ian brought the game here and got the attention of Sony
Tokyo Game Show 2012 -Mostly final version of the game was playable on the show floor, we hear it got pretty crowded!

Austin, Texas

San Diego, California

PAX Prime 2012 – Where we handed out a million t-shirts!

New York, New York
Sony Press Event 2012 – Complete with hot hot nyc subways

Los Angeles, California
TUS at E3
E3 2012 – Was surprisingly pleasant. People were really receptive to the ideas in our game. There’s hope for the future! Also Miyamoto played the game (he said it was cool).

Paris, France
Joue le Jeu at La Gaîté Lyrique 2012 – So we could say that we showed our work at a gallery in Paris. No big deal.

San Francisco, California
IGF 2009 – The Unfinished Swan was nominated in the student category

There are so many countries we have yet to visit; hopefully we’ll be able to spread the love in the future. I’m looking at you, Canada. And you, Australia!

Until next time,
Ben

    Koln and Paris but not London?

    You realise that, with the new underwater train thing, you can be in London from Paris in less than 3 hours?

    This is just racism. Or laziness. But probably racism.

    Good luck with the game, gentlefolk… love the concept.
