Hi dear Gameboomers. smile

I'd like to take a moment to tell you about a really great event that will take place during the Gamescom (August, 19th.) in Cologne, Germany this year.

Just like in the last two years, Adventure-Treff.de will be hosting a huge community meeting at a beach club that is aiming at adventure game developers, adventure game fans, publishers and pretty much everyone who is related to the adventure game community.

Confirmed guests so far include Charles Cecil (Broken Sword), Agustin Cordes (Scratches, Asylum), Matt Clark (Barrow Hill, Bracken Tor), Martin Ganteföhr (Overclocked, The Moment of Silence) and Jeff Williams (Darkstar). Despite of these confirmed names there will be many other developers around. So you would have the chance to meet a lot of these people in person, have discussions with them and other adventure game fans and spend a great and relaxed evening among with many other members of the adventure game community.

You can find further info on our Facebook site. smile

This is gonna be a great night for the adventure game world and if any of you have a chance to attend I'd be very glad. Hope to see as many members of the community there as possible! smile

It is a lot of fun indeed, Space Quest Fan! smile

We're doing this for the third time now and the first two times were amazing.

Special highlight of the last year: Last year Adventure-Treff did a poll about the best game between 2000 and 2010 that The Longest Journey won.
Since Ragnar Tornquist and some colleagues from Funcom were at our party last year, we were able to give him our adventure of the decade award in person in front of lots of adventure game fans.
Quite a special event for everyone that attended and I had the feeling that Ragnar felt very good about the whole thing himself. smile

Sounds like a memorable occasion. I take it that Mr. Tornquist was surprised?

lol I love that idea. You know, after 1 1/2 years I recently finished the script for the film noir/gothic horror character drama "The Art of Drowning". So who knows, maybe this will be the next adventure of the decade. lol

Now I just need to find a publisher... grin

Just a little update. There are about 50 confirmed guests for our event now and it's getting more daily. During the last days a lot of developers and publishers have confirmed, like Daedalic, King Art, Deck13, Animation Arts and many more. So if you visit Cologne in August, feel free to join us there.

You can find all informations you need on our
Facebook Site.

The newest confirmed star guest: Mr. Aaron Conners!!! smile

Aaron will be at the Gamescom because he will be presenting The Sims 3 for EA where he is now working as a Senior Designer and fortunately he immediately agreed to visit the Adventure-Treff party. bravo

Woohoo, this is absolutely awesome. I've been a fan of him and the Tex Murphy games for a long time and beside of Jane Jensen (who I met in 2009) this is one of the few people from the adventure game world I always wanted to meet.

Whoever of you will be there... don't forget to bring your Tex Murphy boxes to get them signed! smile
