This post was written by Ian Stedman of G.U. Games and awesome volunteer who facilitated the event. Special thanks to his wife. Trish, as well, for helping to bring Unpub to RinCon!
The RinCon 2012 Unpub ProtoZone was a great success, attendance looked like it was going to be low, but we pulled some strings and got an announcement out on The Game Crafter at the last minute to bring in a few more local designers to fill the roster.
Among which were Seth Jaffee, designer of Eminent Domain showing off TMG’s new upcoming game Captains of Industry; Patrick Nickell of Crash Games showing his newest creation Dungeon Heroes, which is set to launch on Kickstarter soon; and the legendary James Ernest of Cheapass Games joined us to demo his newest project Fish Cook which is actually available as a Print-n-play “open beta” project.
G.U. Games hosted the event but wasn’t too busy to show off their newest deck-building creation, BattleMage! We didn’t have a chance to play all the games, although there were two other standouts: Toil and Trouble by Marcus Ellsworth, and Uncle Otto’s Vault by Red Rook Games both had a lot going for them and offered very unique and innovative gameplay, keep an eye out for them at future events!
Thank you very much to everyone who participated, and to RinCon and their staff for offering the venue. Can’t wait to see you all again next year.
