With our Bratislava friends from Nine Rock Games, we revisited the Game Access game conference on May 27-28 after several years of covid delays. More than 20 Ashbornians and 20 NineRockers have united under the THQ Nordic Family umbrella, where we have presented our history and raised charity donations to help Ukraine by offering beer and lemonade.
During the two-day conference, visitors could buy a so-called bottomless cup for 100 CZK to refresh themselves and join us to chat. The interest in supporting Ukraine turned out to be stronger than thirst - many people continued to contribute voluntarily without receiving anything in return. Together we have managed to raise 32 864 Kč to help Ukraine through the Člověk v tísni charity. Big thanks to all who visited us and supported the cause.
Not to forget, our sisters and brothers from Bratislava presented their upcoming title, Way of the Hunter. For Ashborne, chef Pettka gave his presentation about establishing our studio during a pandemic to share the experience and help others avoid some pitfalls. We have thoroughly enjoyed the excellent conference vibe, talks, talks, games, and, most importantly, the opportunity to see each other with colleagues from the game industry. We were looking forward to the next event like this!
