News: Widelands on Games Convention 2010
We are happy to announce, that Widelands will be present on Game Convention 2010!
It was a great suprise for all of us, wenn Rüdiger Meyer (known as Xylotuar on IRC) offered us a free booth at the fair. Although he is a well known user and many of you surely already played an online match against or with him, nobody knew about his employment.
But who could explain his decision better than he himself? So here comes his official statement :
Dear Widelands community,
in the past months I partly got addicted to your great game. Although it is no competition to commercial games from technical and graphical point of view, it's game design and the friendly community convinced me, that even game crashes during network games can be funny and just connects the players more together. This was a completely new but wonderful experience.
Because of this experience, I would like to give you a chance to promote your game for free on the Game Conventions fair.
I discussed this idea with my supervisor and after playing two matches with him, he supported my idea. He told me that we can see this as test run - if the Widelands booth is accepted and visited by many of our guests, we will think about an Open Source section of our fair in the next years.
So: Welcome on Games Convention!
