Guacamelee at E3 2012

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Hey all, Graham here.

Chris Harvey and I just got back home from E3 this morning on the red-eye. In Chicago we were in such a rush to catch our connection I left my Vita on the plane. I had to sprint across the airport and lucky I got it back (*whew*).

Anyway enough about the commute.. I really just wanted to share a few of the highlights from the week 🙂

Sony had us set up on their second floor (media-only) in a very professional looking booth. WE had stations for both the PS3 and Vita versions of Guacamelee!

We were even on the big screen from time to time 🙂

Over the course of the three days there were a lot of meetings with great press folks as they were filed past us by Sony PR. We even had a few special meetings away from the booth with the Giant Bomb guys, and were on the PlayStation Live Cast (Chris on camera, me playing the game)

A lot of sexy people in this room

Someone said something funny!

And at some point, someone came by and put these on the wall next to our station (woot!)

There are a lot of them!

Award Nominations!

That’s right, two nominations from Destructoid for Best Downloadable and Best Indie game, two from IGN for Best PS3 and Best Vita game, and one from X-Play for Best Platformer.

We’re super happy with how the show turned out, and would like to thank everyone who stopped by to try out the game!
