Thank you, MCM London Comic Con 2018!

Hello pals, we hope you’ve been having a wonderful week.

MCM London Comic Con is all done, and our team had an absolutely wonderful time. We’re so happy that so many of you came by to play Disco Elysium! We even had some friends of the show stop by, like Alice Vandy, Mikee Goodman, and Dot Major. You can get a little peak at that in the above photos that Alice sent us, thank you Alice!!

We also really appreciated that some of you who had played at previous events stopped by to visit us with your friends and encouraged them to give it a try. As we show the game more and more, we hope to see that continuing to happen. It’s really motivating for us as we continue to work, we’re so thankful for your support.

This time we had one of our QA people, Laura, staffing the booth and she was kind enough to share some of the pictures she took around the event. We hope you like them!

Don’t forget that the next time we’ll be showing Disco Elysium will be in San Francisco on November 11th at Day of the Devs! You can get all the details and RSVP for the event on their website.

We’ve heard many tales about the negative effects of working without playing, so in our resting hours many members of the ZA/UM team have been spending time with the recently released Return of the Obra Dinn. Lucas Pope’s work has been a major source of inspiration for us, and this new game is no exception. Several members of ZA/UM are also big fans of memes, and… well…… Sorry, Lucas.

Until next time.

Our Next Events Are… MCM London Comic Con and Day of the Devs!

Hi friends, how’s it going?

They say that once you start traveling it can be difficult to stop, and that certainly seems to be true for us! We’re back again this week to let you know your next opportunities to play Disco Elysium!

At the end of October, we’ll be bringing Disco Elysium to MCM London Comic Con! The event itself takes place on October 26th – 28th at the ExCel London, and you better believe we’re excited. We’ll have more details about where we’ll be set up and which members of the team you’ll get to meet real soon, so please stay tuned!

Additionally, we’re making our first public appearance in San Francisco at Day of the Devs. We’re so proud to be included among such an impressive lineup, and we’re very excited to make friends in another new place. Interested in coming by? You’ll be able to find us at The Midway on November 11th, plus the whole thing is free and open to the public! Just don’t forget to RSVP, okay?

We may be on the move pretty frequently these days, but rest assured that we’re continuing to work on getting Disco Elysium ready to come into your homes. We recently posted a gif showing our recent progress on Twitter, but just in case you didn’t catch it we figured we’d show it off here as well:

That’s all for this week. We’ll be in touch again real soon.

A New Dingus, MAG Erfurt, and Press- Oh my!

Hey there everyone!

It’s nice to meet you all! My name’s EMi, and I’ve recently joined the ZA/UM team as another community manager in support of Disco Elysium. I’m based out of the US, so my focus will be on keeping the ZA/UM feeds active during the time zones for the Americas. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all better, and keeping this blog regularly updated! The team working on Disco Elysium has grown quite a bit since the early days when they first started the blog and I’m excited to be able to tell you more about what everyone’s up to.

As you may have seen on Twitter and Facebook, our European community manager Dani and producer Siim “Kosmos” Sinamäe brought Disco Elysium to Germany for MAG in Erfurt! They had a stellar time – thank you to everyone who stopped by to play and chat! Dani took some time afterwards to post about the top 5 indie games the duo saw while they were there, so head on over to our Steam blog to read it. While you’re there, if you haven’t already, please be sure to add Disco Elysium to your wishlist and follow along with us. We’ll be posting over there regularly as well and we definitely don’t want you to miss out on all the latest news regarding the game.

While our travel has continued, so has the coverage of Disco Elysium in the press! GamerPro’s felt drawn to play “like a moth to the flame,” The Geek Show published their interview with our writer Argo Tuulik, and Gamereactor shared the case notes they collected as they explored Revachol. We also really enjoyed the video from Matt Elliot that we’ve posted above where he highlights seven features that make Disco Elysium an “ambitious RPG.” Thank you to everyone who took the time to play and document their experiences with the game!

That’s all for this week, but we’ll have more news for you very soon. We hope you’ll keep up to us on a day-to-day basis by following along with us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and joining our Discord so we can chat with you all more often.

Talk to you later!
