Throughout the 5 days of Gamescom 2019, 373.000 people visited the enormous halls of Koelnmesse building, 31.300 of which were guests in the business area. There, Carbon Studio showcased a hands-on demo of The Wizards – Dark Times standalone expansion for the very first time.
Closed sessions for over 30 press members were held as part of the VR Games Showcase organized by the Swedish studio Fast Travel Games. The initiative has joined 6 companies producing high-quality VR games in a collective effort to boost attractiveness and outreach of the event. The trip to Cologne and participation in VR Games Showcase have been a massive success for our studio.
Carbon Studio’s showcase was visited by press representatives from the United States, Europe, and South America. The demo version of The Wizards – Dark Times evoked very positive reactions, with the detailed graphics receiving most praise, and the intuitive gesture-based spellcasting system coming in second. Our team has heard several times, that “The Wizards – Dark Times is the most beautiful VR game on Gamescom”. VR Games Showcase has also been a fantastic opportunity to test the new gameplay formula before releasing the standalone expansion in Q1 2020.
