Thanks to Sweden Game Arena this year I was able to participate to Gamescom 2015 in Köln, Germany.
The average walking distance for the 3 days was 20 km for me. The size of the event is impressive, close to overwhelming. But the fact that there is a completely separate business area, which is tranquil and relaxing, made the whole thing easier to handle.
The biggest event I have ever attended was E3 2007, the last of the monster E3's. Gamescom 2015 was at least twice the size of that.
I was personally impressed with Blizzard's presence at the event. I was disappointed because Valve was completely absent.
It was great to meet the guys from Gambitious and Devolver and we were very happy to hang out with our old indie developer friends from the Belgian Pavilion who are awesome. On top of that we have managed to reconnect with a lot of really old friends of ours from the industry.
The presence of Sweden Game Arena was by all means fantastic. The organizing was great, the people, as usual, super cool. The way I felt like part of a family really warmed my heart because I know now for sure where my home is :). Bellow is the whole visual story of the event
