The adventure began on Thursday night. Matt, Murilo and I all stayed up til ~5am functioning on obtaining every little thing excellent for the show. Two hours after going to bed, it was Friday morning and I was packing up the vehicle to make the drive to Philly with my extremely old friend Mark, who graciously agreed to go with me.
The drive itself was fortunately uneventful. A 2.5 ride North on interstate 95 was light on visitors nearly devoid of streetlights. For these of you unfamiliar with driving in the mid-Atlantic area, right here is what it appears like to drive on the highway around here:

IndieGame tables like this 1 really showed up. We remaind
neighborless for the duration of the show.
As you can see in the image, even though, most of the booths have been currently set up. These positions cost a bit added and, being unfamilar with the con and, to be honest, these kinds of things in general, I opted against it. Maybe the incorrect move, but nothing damning. We set up a couple of little images and some small pouches and our medium-sized monitor and got prepared for visitors.
My very first pang of regret came quite quickly. I wish I'd splurged and purchased some type of giant printed logo issue for the game, but alas, I did not.

I had smartly set an alarm for 6 am the subsequent morning so I could finish, which I did. We arrived at the con about half an hour early, giving us enough time to test the new level and uncover and fix all the (several) errors. Every single time we did locate one, although, it sent a jolt of adrenaline via my body and my heart would race as I attempted to quickly right the error before I was tried and hanged for gross negligence.
After discovering a way to semi-loosen up, I went around to take some images. Among Back to the Future, a creeper, a pair of full-sized Mario dolls sitting on a couch playing Mario, and the not pictured billions of game vendors, Mark and I have been thoroughly, thoroughly pleased.

In spite of obtaining a total sleep time of about 11 hours over 3 nights, I'm nonetheless feeling ridiculously excellent. Confident is a word I may be taking into consideration utilizing.
Here's some more pictures:
