We had an amazing 3 days at Gameacon, in Atlantic City we met a lot of new players who loved the combat mechanics and enjoyed our new combat demo. 

We also made some new friends. Alexander (Alex) and Alexander (Alek) from Schism Worldwide with our own Alexander (Sasha) prove just how many Slavs there are in gaming (and just how common the name Alexander is in those former Soviet countries.)

Like in Boston, we also ran our Legacy of Svarog Arena, at one point we had the top 3 scores battling head to head to get another one of our latex swords from Epic Armoury. We took a few pictures while we were there that you can check out on our Facebook page. I will say though these guys at Gameacon blew away the high scores we got in Boston, maybe it was because Gameacon also hosted a Smash Bros Competition so it brought out a particular type of gamer.

In the end, a latecomer named Mason finished the Legacy of Svarog Arena in the fastest time with 1:25. Mason took home a noble sword by. Vasilisa's daggers were the clear speed winner this round. 

Mason came and not only beat our all time fastest score but also the all time high score over at Schism Worldwide and their game Red Barton and the Sky Pirates.

But probably the most exciting part of the weekend for us was being nominated for not one, not two, but THREE Gameacon awards! Including a Game of the Year nomination.

Boston FIG Recap

Well pretty late a far between when it comes to updates. But better late than never. We came to Boston FIG with a whole new combat demo. Previously we had Yaroslav with sword and Vasilisa with dual daggers as their only weapon choices and you fought in the very first combat section of the story. At Boston FIG we came with all 8 weapon types to try in our new and challenging arena.

While many players said the intro combat was too easy last year (we were of course showing off the very first combat section) with our arena we brought something much more challenging, so challenging in fact that out of hundreds of players that tried to just complete the arena without being defeated was few and far between. Only about 10 players completed the demo. 

But there was a prize to be won. The player who completed the arena in the fastest time walked away with a latex Noble great sword by Epic Armory, That went to Chris P. with the fastest time of 2:01 while using the rapier. 

But talking about our time at Boston FIG wouldn't be complete without mentioning one particular player. Dressed as Kirito from Sword Art Online, This 11 year old young lady desperately played our demo well over 50 times to try and win our sword, and got a very impressive second place at 2:10. We didn't let her leave empty handed. She still received 1 free week of sword fighting classes for her and a friend at Guard Up! in Burlington, MA (which is also where we purchased the sword.) She played until Boston FIG closed the convention and forced her off (we would have let her keep playing)

We did a few Live Feeds through our Facebook page while at Boston FIG. Check them out hereIf you want to see more images from Boston FIG and find out where we are showing up next you can check our our festivals page here.

Guard Up! Gets first look after giving the Legacy of Svarog dev team some lessons.

A few months ago we took a private lesson with Jacob at Guard Up who was very knowledgeable in fighting with many types of weapons of that era. After a one hour class Alexander was armed with new knowledge with how to make the weapon fighting as realistic as possible for Legacy of Svarog.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of returning to Guard Up! in Burlington, MA to show them what their Medieval sword fighting lesson has done for Legacy of Svarog. While the school was closed for upgrades we brought the Arena build we are bringing to Boston FIG this weekend and they were the first to give it a try. Needless to say they were quite happy with the realism that most games ignore in their combat.

While there we also purchased a Noble Sword by Epic Armory. A latex and foam LARP sword, hand made in Denmark. The sword will be given away as a prize at Boston FIG to the player who completes our demo in the fastest time.

Guard Up! was also very generous to give us 40 passes for a free week of sword fighting classes as well as some buddy night passes for a player a friend to give away to players who complete the demo or are just all around awesome at Boston FIG.

Hope to see you there!
