People Played Spacebro!
This year, Gamercamp was being hosted in Toronto's four-storey Hotel Ocho where we found ourselves on the same floor as Microsoft, who were featuring a number of Xbox One titles to be released (including Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime). We met a lot of cool people and apparently also made some noise!
Over the course of the weekend of October 18th and 19th, fans, partygoers and members of the press crowded the lobby and halls of the hotel to play the 21 or so games made available for the Pop-Up Arcade as part of Gamercamp's official selection, as well as about 20 games selected by Microsoft and Sony which will be available for their own platforms.
Basically, very many people played Spacebro Justice Rocket!
Before we get into all the lovely press you can read, We'd like to say that we had an amazing time at what was sadly the last Gamercamp, that we are super proud to have been a part of it, and we're glad to have met all of the lovely people that attended. They're a pretty fantastic lot, and the event was an absolute blast.

"... there’s already something special about Spacebro in its current iteration. Seeing two people you don’t know (and who might not know each other) enthusiastically doing secret handshakes is about as unique a gaming experience as you can get. When you’re invited to put on the glove and high five to start, there’s really nothing else like it: saving the world with nothing but the power of friendship."
