Hi All,

I'm going to the GAMA Trade Show this April. I'm going there to pitch my games to various publishers, and possibly run some demos. I've spent the past two weeks compiling a list of publishers. These are the companies that I'm going to contact in the next few days to set up "demo dates" with for GTS. (Source material: The exhibitor's list from Origins 2008) My intent is to get all of my dates for GTS set up, then spend the time from now 'till the convention making information packets and good prototypes for the games that the publishers are most interested in.

I'm turning to y'all to ask three questions:

1) If you've done pitches before (especially pitches at cons to publishers), what have you found that works well? What doesn't work?

2) Do you have any recommendations for publishers to pitch to that you'd expect to be at GTS 2009?

3) Are you going to GTS 2009?

If I can sell one game, that'll be okay. If I can sell two games, I'll be quite satisfied. If more than two games sell, I'll be ecstatic.

Any input is appreciated!

I recommend that you pitch to me. I'll be at GTS running the Bucephalus Games booth, but hope to have time to review some new games for our 2010-2011 lineup.

I can be emailed at Jeremy@bucephalus.com or geekmail me.

See you at the show!

Thanks for suggesting that I pitch to you. Amusingly, you were already on my short list of companies to contact.

Either my agent or I will contact you through appropriate channels to set up a pitch session in the near future. Thanks again!
