Had my one and only breakfast at the hotel then sent off the postcards from Cologne main station (after a hunt for the post office there). There is a trend to stick "Mc" on the front of shops and goods here - so there was "McPaper" and "McClean".
Walked across the Hohenzollern Bridge which is adorned with padlocks from romantically minded couples to the Kolnmesse site. To my surprise they accepted my press pass - after I had to queue as my print out wasn't good enough! In the queue it seemed like people were blathering their way to press passes despite what the website claimed about eligibility. Could have turned up earlier to avoid rush.
Started tracking down people I hoped to see in the business halls 4.1 and 4.2. I asked after Agustin Cordes at the Argentinian area and I said his name so wrong they didn't realise who I was after! Agustin is more Agoustine or so it sounded. I saw Agustin later and he recognised who I had to be! I felt a momentary glow of fame!
Interviewed Kresimir Spes of Cateia Games at the Croatian booth - Kaptain Brawe should be said Captain Brave (I'm a little confused as Serbo-Croat doesn't have a w). But the spelling stuck.
At the Swiss Games booth I met Michael Huber of IF Studios. Confused things a little by mistakenly thinking I was meeting Kimara Rouwit - I tend to speed-read books and emails and that's not always a good idea! IF Studios are developing Perils of Man - a promising multi platform Adventure game.
Talked to Agustin Cordes of Senscape who showed me the Unity improvements to "Asylum", as well as what a new Kickstarter in October will be for.
A damp return walk. I dined at nearby Tang Wei Chinese restaurant as it was so wet, reassured by the Chinese people eating there. Hard to choose from the menu as the dishes were meant for two people! Quaint that I was able to understand what the Chinese were saying better than I can the German natives. Wo keyi yong Putonghua tanhua yidiar. Something like that.
