Slitherine/Matrix Press Event 2012 - Live Feed!

Post by IainMcNeil » Wed Apr 18, 2012 5:23 pm

Hi guys,

we are pleased to announce that the Slitherine/Matrix press event 2012 will be on April 23rd-24th in Stresa in Italy. We are flying in developers and journalists from all over Europe to this premier event.

The event is being held at the Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees. This amazing hotel has a wealth of history and was an ideal fit for our event.

Don't forget to tell us how much you paid for the hotel so that we can make some rants in other threads about the way the hotel bills affect the game prices.

If you want the press to come you have to make it a bit special. If you want to blame anyone blame them! ;)

I wish that were true! Getting the press to pay any attention at all takes things like this. We certainly would prefer not to spend all this money to get their attention but that's part of what being a publisher requires! :)

Please talk some sense into those cheap Matrix executives that don't like to spend a single $ on development for Close Combat. Slitherine is CC fans only hope to save this game.

I hope Slitherine takes over for Matrix on all future Close Combat projects. Matrix just re-used the same old code riddled with bugs, instead of actually fixing it or rewriting into a modern new game. Also I hope that Matrix does not try to turn CC into a 3D, dime-a-dozen First Person Shooter game for kids.

In comparison Slitherine seems to be a first-class well managed business that actually spends some real $ on development.
