Gamescom is the world's largest gaming event with 370,000 visitors and 1037 exhibitors from 56 countries attending the show and the biggest gaming news expo of the year in Europe, held annually at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

This year, gamescom will be even better since ApolloTeam will have a stand there! You heard it; our beloved Vampire will be making the show between latest gaming systems. Who said Amiga was dead, eh?

Meet us at gamescom from 21.08.2019 to 24.08.2019 in Hall 10

Wow.

Between latest gaming systems? Seems a bit unfair to sandwich it in like that. 🤔

@Hypex

In my view this a good thing, it can function as a reality check for the project.

Is there a product the Apollo/Vampire team could sell actually?

The VampireV4 is not available but only insane customer would buy a VampireV2 now, because it could be replaces by the VampireV4 at any moment.

This Osborne effect on Vampires is going on since two years now, maybe some information about price of the VampireV2 compared with VampireV4 would solve this problem.

ApolloTeam needs to hold a good presentation in GFX in assembler or a small game.

With a few fliers for them to read at home.

If a Patreon was set up, people could pay towards seeing examples (code and videos) created by experts to push publicity and sales.

Marketing 101.

Amiga could be the platform for high school students to learn assembler, and games development from the ground up.

No platform has that - with proper coordination and a few free systems to universities that teach electrical engineering or asm, games dev - win win.

@asymetrix

I agree with you that marketing is nice, but it costs resources.

If they go to Gamescom, they get alot of eyeballs, for good or worse.
It depends on the presentation they give on the stand, and how they can convey the information.

That said, intresting video of Diablo 1 on Vampire. Work in progress;
