First of all, today is one year since we released our game to Steam Early Access. This is not exactly the reason for celebration as we really hoped to release much sooner. But it is a year after all. We will make a 50% discount within a Weeklong Deals starting the next week in order to celebrate a bit. You can purchase our game with this discount from 13 till 19 of October.
We returned from Igromir 2014, the biggest game expo in Russia on Monday. We have mixed feelings about our participation.
On one side, it was great to interact with many players and journalists and we saw their enthusiasm and excitement in game process (Denis Lomako, for example, wrote many new notes in regard to the tutorial, based on players activity). It was really fun to wear medieval armor and clothes despite the fact that many people mistook us for cosplayers.
On another side, we had reached none of the goals that we wanted. About 500 people played our game in 4 days and we gave away about 1000 leaflets with the game info and just a little more than 50 game-keys to journalists and players, which came to us with coats of arms on their clothes (that was a little quest to get a key). However, it didn’t work out and there are no new reports about the game among players in internet. We talked to a few journalists and even did some video interviews, but not much materialized yet (maybe it will take some more time to play the game, it’s long :)).
Overall, we spend about 7,500$ including everything, that is not a small amount for us. The expo was fun but that was not worth the effort. People who came were not looking for a new indie old-school game to play, they were mostly looking to play colorful and cinematic games like World of Tanks or Assassin’s Creed – their stands were always full and lot of people waiting in queue.
We tried another expo – GDC Play before (was way worse). Probably, we should try PAX next time. We heard PAX was much friendlier to indie games but to go there we would have to find additional funds, so we have left will be spend for development.

В русской версии новости по "Легендам Эйзенвальда" вы найдете пару флаеров, которые мы раздавали на "Игромире", новые обои и смету нашего участия на "Игромире".
we are going to Igromir (Game World in Russian), this is the biggest Russian expo. We are finishing with the last preparations and leaving tomorrow. From October 2nd to October 5th you can find us in the Pavillion 1, hall 4, c7. If you are visiting this yearly expo, please stop by!
We will show our new cinematic trailer. You will be able to play on our biggest map – Windfeld. We didn’t show this map to anyone yet. You can personally meet a bigger part of our team and look at our stand (we think it will impress you). And what an expo is it without some cosplay? Alexander, Nikolay and Denis and other members of the team will be in medieval clothing.
Come by, it will be fun.
Мы едем на “Игромир 2014”. Вот-вот закончим последние приготовления и отправляемся. Со 2 по 5 октября вы сможете посетить наш стенд по адресу: павильон 1, зал 4, место С7. Если вы тоже решили посетить ежегодную выставку, которая в этом году будет особенно интересной (много нововведений и интересных гостей), то приходите обязательно! Очень вас ждем!
На выставке мы покажем новый синематик-трейлер к Legends of Eisenwald. Вы сможете поиграть в игру на самой большой карте Legends of Eisenwald – Виндфельд ссылка на дневники разработчиков про Виндфельд (в России эту карту еще нигде не показывали). Вы лично познакомитесь с большей частью команды и посмотреть наш тематический стенд (мы верим, что он произведет на вас впечатление). Без косплея на “Игромире” никуда! Александр Дергай, Николай Армоник, Денис Ломако и другие члены команды будут “косплеить” в средневековых нарядах.
Важно! Мы произведем на “Игромире” раздачу ключей Legends of Eisenwald тем, кто посетит наш павильон в украшенном гербом наряде. Совсем не обязательно, чтобы это был средневековый герб. Вы можете придти с гербом космического пехотинца из вселенной Warhammer или с гербом компании Ferrari на плече. Приходите, будет здорово. Ключей много, но ограниченное количество, поэтому спешите!
“The graphics are excellent, the presentation is sharp, the setting is pleasantly different from the norm and the gameplay is challenging but accessible. If Aterdux keep on down this road, they might well have a hit on their hands.”
“Legend of Eisenwald is looking to shape up quite nicely.”
“While the game is very much in beta, it has so much potential I’m giddy just thinking about it.”
