As previously announced, Command was exhibited on Serious Games Showcase & Best Practices 2011, an all-day event organized by the Laboratory of New Technologies in Communication, Education and the Mass Media in cooperation with the Hellenic-American Union. Build 186 was available and running on local PCs, free for visitors to experiment and give it a try (and well they did, particularly those with military background).
The people’s reception was enthusiastic, particularly by visitors who had been informed of Command’s existence only recently through the announcement. The Lab’s head professor (a man not easily impressed, as we were afterwards informed) was left commenting “you guys are dangerous…!”. In another amusing instance, a pair of visitors sat down to have a peek at Command “although we’re not really much into these militaristic games, what with all the violence promotion…”. A few minutes later we were dissecting the optimum engagement geometry for a high-deflection AMRAAM BVR shot – not too shabby!
We would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit us and provide us with invaluable feedback as well as precious encouragement. We hope to present an ever better product at future exhibition opportunities and, of course, there is also the prospect of a public beta on the horizon.
