The time had come to our hour long panel session. I was really nervous since this was the first time doing anything like that and I honestly had no idea what to talk about. I had talked about what we did in less than five mins to everyone visiting our table so there was no way I could drag that out for an hour!
The three of us headed up to the empty panel room making small talk about what we were going to do. No one turned up which we anticipated and took the opportunity to chill in the room. Thankfully the room was like fridge compared to the trader rooms which was incredibly hot in the summer day! A few people popped into the room so we started setting the laptop up and I recited what we did to get things moving along. In doing so, people kept coming in and wouldn't stop til we had a full room! It was an amazing and unexpected experience to see a room full of people attending your panel session and from the discussions we had, it was very successful!
I recognised many faces of those who were keenly interested at our table and we ended up having a very enjoyable discussion of game design, our experience as gamers in horror games and what made it great. From what I heard, our panel was one of the most popular sessions at the convention!

|Job well done! Congrats again Team Wasabi!|
|Celebratory pizza time!|
And collapsed on the grass.
Thanks again to everyone who made our experience so enjoyable - the Team, the organisers, and the con-goers! For those still interested in working with us, do feel free to drop us a line / comment and I'll get back at you!
Thanks for reading!
Our original intention was to show case our latest beta demo but unfortunately due to some technical hiccups, we needed a little longer to make it work. Don't worry! It'll be up soon once we're happy with it. Stay tuned :3 -Wasabi
