Game Informer Penetration!
« on: February 16, 2015, 10:02:46 AM »
I was reading through my latest issue of Game Informer and came across almost an entire page dedicated to HFA.  And then, later in the issue, they had a sidebar of "Games to watch for in 2015" and HFA was on the list!   ;D

It was pretty cool.

Oh, nice! They didn't send a copy this way and I'm not a subscriber, so I unfortunately can't take a look at it :( Maybe you could take a pic of the page for us? :D

Sure, I'll work on that.  I lent my copy to a friend, so I'll take a photo as soon as I get it back.

I used Gyazo to screen grab them, so you'll have to click on them to view the image.

The full page article is pointing it out as an example of a Metroid-Vania indy title, giving Ghost Song as a Sci-Fi example, and HFA as a Fantasy example.  I was most impressed that HFA got that spot over Chasm given that Chasm has its alpha out and playable, so they must REALLY find HFA interesting, as well they should ;)  The actual write up doesn't seem to have much information that couldn't be gleaned from the website and trailer video, but hopefully it will get more people looking it up :)

The third one is just a list of games they think might be out in 2015 that they think look interesting, but it was still cool to see HFA on there.

Ah, shame. :( Hope we're able to take the game to the East Coast at some point!

Out of curiosity, is anyone else planning on attending GDC? Or maybe there's another venue you'd like to see the game in?

A bit too much to the other side of the world for me! Darn oceans! > <
And I don't think there will be similar important events near me! D:

As much as I'd like to get a look at HFA living in europe means that's a no-go. Best luck with GDC though.

Now if you'll excuse me I'll be sitting in this here corner, waiting for alpha demo to arrive *begins rocking quietly in the corner*
