As some of you already know, we have a jam-packed schedule happening the next few weeks. So here's a sneak peak of what's new this year in our upcoming guest appearances and events.
We're starting of this weekend with NWI Comic Con.
We enjoy coming to this event every year since it's one of the most affordable and family friendly conventions in the Chicago-land area. This comic con features a lot of great local vendors and world renowned artists in a very fun and welcoming environment.

After that is C2E2 happening on February 28th to March 1st, 2020.
All 3 days, I will be working at the XYZ Game Labs at C2E2 Booth #1639. Check out their games like Tiny Tina's Robot Tea Party, Arch Ravels and Zoo Year's Eve. The team and I will be demoing all these games. So stop in and play with us!
Aside from working at the booth, I am so excited to announce that I will be in several panels throughout the weekend.
