    The more I see of you nutters making that booth, the better =P.

    Looking forward to the full video.

            Once the infestation reaches the Command Chair, the process begins. One Gorge enters the chair to provide the necessary height. Another climbs on its shoulders to access the controls.

            A Gorge Lab is quickly established, staffed by microscopic Gorges who work tirelessly to unlock the secrets of Frontiersman Technology, stopping only to change their lab coats when they become dirtied. Once the research progresses to a certain point, the Gorgecom gives the order. Nanites are called into service.

            The armature forms. A chosen Gorge, tested many times in the field of battle, enters the machine.

            Servos whir; miniguns spin up in diagnostics; an Exogorge is born.

    Nice trailer!

    Make the voice parts a bit louder. It's a bit hard to hear over the music at times.

    Maybe subtitles for future videos? Since there isn't a huge online presence for the game you've pretty much got a monopoly on all NS2 info, so it needs to be accessible to non-native speakers...subtitles will help! I've never actually made subtitles for a video....if it's too time consuming don't bother :P

    By the looks of things with the small glips of the booth running, people did take intrest and I hope it went very well

    Build your own game from scratch, build your own booth from scratch. Deep symbolism, deep.

    Great editing, great music! Color me teased!

    You have such a strong sense of being an under-dog! It's incredible how much it let's NS2 stand for itself as an awesome game! No distracting fluff or marketing mumbo-jumbo.

    "This is our game. We made it ourselves. This is our booth. We made it to."

    It really makes you feel like you are paying for a great game instead of paying for a marketing campaign.

    I don't think I could've said it any better.

    Well done guys! As developers you're a rare breed, stay that way.

    Glad you guys took the risk and went (I certainly wouldn't have had the guts), and I hope it really paid off for you all with lots of new players and publicity! Can't wait to see the full video (the trailer was fantastic by the way)

    Next time I vote one team member is crammed (unwillingly for best results) into a Gorge suit and forced to bellyslide around the booth, handing out DLC codes and breathing heavily on anyone that looks under the weather. That's why PAX plague happened... not enough Gorges.

    good effort for 500 dollars.

    Im sure you would come out with more revenue for it, what is that like 15 purchases?
    i like me. do you like me?

    Well, that price is just the booth itself...doesn't count airfare for 8 people, hotels for 5 nights, meals, and the cost to rent the booth space, and many other incidentals, all of which added up to be quite a bit more then 500$ :P

    But considering that most companies probably spent as much for just their booth as we've probably spent over a few years developing NS2, we definitely pulled off PAX pretty inexpensively.

    I'm glad you guys came out of PAX so well, it seems like youve had nothing but good press! Imo the diy stall was a piece of marketing genius, I'd definitely go check out the indie underdogs in amongst all those slick (boring) looking booths.

    Also, Hugh, your video editing is really shaping up something nice these days.

    Just a thing they were giving away/promoting for the people that visited them at Pax. I think it was a serial key on a ns2 card, but I'm unsure.... It is used to unlock that icon.

    Looks great, Hugh.

    At the beginning of the documentary, I thought Charlie was talking about the game itself, not just PAX. Seemed to have a bit of a double meaning, whether intended or not.

    The only thing I would even consider commenting on is the voices being a little low compared to the music.

    What's that game in the video?

    Its graphics are really good.
    Sig images should be no larger than 400x75px in size.
