I went to the ScrewAttack Gaming Convention on June 22 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, TX. For those of you who are long-time AnimeFest goers, this is the hotel where that convention used to be held! Above is my video review and giveaway and below are all the links to the coolest stuff the convention had to offer as well as the rules to enter the giveaway!
“Set in a post robot-human war, Zog awakens to a robot factory of its, now destroyed, city. In an attempt to regain a connection to the main AI, Zog must make its way through the factory ruins to the brain room, without being shut back down by the human soldiers that now occupy the area.” – Skylar Rudin
“Mist of Stangnation is a first person shooter that incorporates an element of strategy. Currently, the game plays like Call of Duty’s domination; two teams of players fighting for control over three capture points, pretty standard stuff. The twist is that each team has a player-controlled general who can upgrade players. So if my general send me to capture Control Point B, and sees that there are two enemies in that area, the general can buy me a grenade launcher to kill the players. Likewise the general of the opposing team, in an attempt to defend Control Point B, might buy the two players heavy armor or increase the range of their rifles. The currency to purchase these upgrades and power ups comes from how many control points are seized, and with the addition of player respawns costing resources, the general has to incorporate strategy into resource management and also map capture. Generals are also meant for support, but have some light defensive elements. This means that they are fairly vulnerable and should also be protected by players because losing the general takes a big toll on the team.” – Josh Wilkinson
“Brain AND Zombie features a fully animated opening, where the heroic Professor Brawn accidently turns himself into a giant brain trying to save the world. Sprawling across 4 worlds (World 5, Robo World, will be out fall 2013) with more on the way, Brawn must uses the power of science in an attempt to stop the influx of the zombie hordes. Hunt Zombies through the city, avoid the giant saws in the woodmill, slip and slide across the ice cream factory, and then dodge the toxins of the chemical plant. Each world features their own unique hazards and new Zombies types with their own unique style of game play. The Brain is also customizable using an arsenal of specialized hats some with special powers adding to the fight (all “scientifically” proven). Take the Zombies hordes head on… just sans the head.” -BAZ Press Release
“It is the year 198X. Big hair is hot, and the war with the Soviets is colder than a refreshing glass of New Coke. RAD RAYGUN must travel the world fighting communist robots, and save the 1980′s by shooting his way through 5 decade spanning levels. Ultra sharp 144p resolution graphics and 4 unique shades of monochrome off-green bring Rad Raygun to life, as only 1980′s mobile technology can.” –http://radraygun.com/
