From August 22 to August 25 there is a large games convention/fair/expo in Leipzig, Germany. It's the largest European games convention and bigger than this year's E3 (electronic entertainment expo). There's quite a few adventure games being showcased, and I guess we will get lots of new information about these games there.

Anyway, confirmed line-ups are:

Aerohills
Alice: English in Wonderland (educational, may be adventure??)
Alice: Follow the white rabbit (PC adventure)
Chuckcha in Moscow (PC adventure)
The History of the Ancient times (educational, may be adventure??)

Anaconda/dtp
Overclocked (PC adventure)
Reprobates (PC adventure)
So Blonde (PC adventure)
Memento Mori (PC adventure)
Undercover: Dual Motives (Nintendo DS adventure)
Gray Matter (PC adventure)
Mata Hari (PC adventure)
Press conference with Jane Jensen, Steve Ince (hi Steve, if you read this, is it okay for me to bring a manual from an old game for you to sign?), Hal Barwood and Noah Falstein (if these names don't ring a bell, they used to work for LucasArts, Indiana Jones adventures amongst others).

Deep Silver/Koch
Secret Files 2 (PC adventure)
Perry Rhodan (PC adventure)

I also expect adventures from Akella, BUKA Entertainment, Focus Home, Micro Application, and Nobilis.

I am visiting the fair from 22nd (press/trade only) to 24th (open to public). As the website I work for plans on booking as many appointments with publishers as they can for me, I don't know how much 'spare time' I will have to roam/browse, but if anyone has specific questions about a specific game, let me know and I will do my best to ask. Not sure if I can post from Leipzig, otherwise it will be after I am back.

What a wonderful time you will have! I can't wait to hear your impressions about the games and the developers. Can you take a picture of Martin (overclocked) for me? laugh

It'll be fun for sure, but also very exhausting as I'll have to walk about a marathon a day (at least my feet will feel as if they have, at the end of each day). Also, it'll be very noisy as every company has video footage of their games and they'll all want to be louder than their neighbours to attract the most attention. But it'll be worth it. wink

Some more titles have been announced as on display or playable (!)

Is it for all genres then? I see you have some RPGs listed. Yes, sounds like it will be much bigger than the U.S. expo. Can you tell me if the developers Larian are listed ?

EDIT: Never mind (thanks anyway) I found the directory and it doesn't appear that they are attending. That's not good news for a release this year of DD2. cry Here is a link if anyone would like to read about it.

Pollo -- could you ask if David Suchet will be voicing Poirot in Evil Under the Sun? And the "when will it release in English" question for many of these games would be wonderful!

Are you packing comfortable shoes?

I can't be there, Steve. Can I have an autograph too?
Preferably on the game box of So Blonde (with the game inside, of course). lol

Last year, Anaconda had thoughtfully provided Gray Matter postcards for those who didn't have game boxes or manuals for Jane Jensen to sign. Perhaps there will be So Blonde postcards this year? If so, and if Steve isn't flooded with MrSnoozles-fans or cramping with RSI, I will get one signed for you MaG.
