Among Elusions arrived at Bloomfield College with confidence for the day's showing. We brought with us our current project, Pachinko Slaughterhouse, and a playable build featuring two new stages. Inside Westminster Art Center, a converted church re-purposed to teach students about art instead of about Jesus, we found our presentation table.
For Aaron, Corey, and myself, this visit to Bloomfield was a return to our old college. It's almost fitting that we would exhibit our hard work since then for the current students, alumni, and faculty. When approached by a professor, the smile they wore said, "You did it! We're happy for you." To me, I felt that my smile back alleviated the opinion that lessons had been forgotten or ignored post-graduation.
More than 90 percent of players completed Pachinko Slaughterhouse. Of the remaining ten percent, half walked away to view more exhibits before the event was over. The rest stopped to talk game design and mechanics, offering suggestions that would make Pachinko their new favorite phone distraction.
I want to thank those fans. Notably, we had a player venture to our side of the room because he had been told that he needed to play Pachinko. That elevated our night, believe me.
Thanks for you continued support!
