Snagging some new fans for Mushroom Men at We The People, a day-long music festival in Los Angeles.

Mushroom Men at We the People

I’m amazed at how quickly little kids pick up this game. People came into Gamecock’s tent and let their children play the game. It’s encouraging that the game is accessible enough for a 5-year-old to pick up while remaining engrossing enough for their parents to play through.

The big projector beside Les Claypool’s stage displayed our logo during his set.

A year and a half ago, I showed Frank Teran’s original concept art for Mushroom Men to Adam Sessler at the Game Developer’s Conference, and since then he’s been hooked. His enthusiasm for the style and concept of Mushroom Men was evident. Last night, he finally got to play the game, and he talked to Chad Barron about it on X-Play.

It’s just a list, but N-Europe highlights Mushroom Men as a game that interests them.
