As many of you are aware, we here at Unpub are busy preparing for our next ProtoAlley at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio! We’ve been a guerrilla feature at this convention for several years, and this year thanks to our awesome sponsor Renegade Games, we’ll be there in an official capacity!
Origins will be at the Greater Columbus Convention Center (400 N High St, Columbus, OH 43215,) Starting Thursday June 15 through Sunday June 18, 2017. This is 5 full days of gaming and Unpub is proud to be in the heart of it all.
Our rooms will be C171 and C172 and we’ll be active for at least 4 days of the Convention starting at 10am each morning. Thursday, Friday and Saturday we’ll play till 5pm. Each of those days consists of two shifts, 10am to 1pm, and 2pm- 5pm. Sunday starts at 10am like the other days, but it will end at 2pm and we only have one shift for designers to demo their games. We might be open for a period of time on Wednesday evening, as well…and we will look for other times to throw open the doors and hoist our noodle, so stay tuned to our social media for extra times!
Registration for the event has been going on for a few weeks now, and we are excited about the 64 games currently registered from 41 different designers! As of this writing there is still space in every shift across the event for more designers. We have 28 tables each shift and while it looks like some shifts are full, there is still space due to the way things will adjust. If you want to get involved Register your game for the event! Get on the waiting list if you have too.
How do you Register?
If you’re in the system, hit the registration button to the right. Sign in using your username and password. Hit the event management link to your right. Select the shift you want and show up with your prototypes in hand!
If you’re not in the system, the steps are identical…except you have to Sign up for an account and then enter your games into the system. If you have any questions reach out and we’ll do our best to help you.
Word of warning: to get the best possible exposure for this event, get registered by midnight Sunday! We’ll be packing up the office and hitting the road, so the more we know before we do that, the better off everyone will be.
We are very thankful for the opportunity to be present at a whole new level during Origins this year! We simply cannot express the proper level of gratitude to Renegade Games for making this happen for us!
We hope to see you in Ohio at Origins next week! Spread the word and bring your prototypes, let’s make games suck less.
