It's my first year attending Comic-Con, and I was wondering if any game publishers were planning on attending/running demos/showing off their stuff.

Although I don't know for sure, in my past experience very few Game Companies actually come. Comic-Con is primarily a comic convention, although the general Pop Culture side of it is expanding - especially since Hollywood has gotten into the act of previewing a lot of feature films there. Overall, the gaming component of the Con is rather small. I remember the first time I went as a gamer, and I was rather disappointed. Not that I'm knocking it - it's just that it is what it is, and no more.

Off the top of my head from last year:

Chessex
Privateer Press (Monsterpocalypse)
Twilight Creations
Wizards of the Coast (mainly MtG stuff)

and then there were some video game publishers.

I live my life in growing orbits, which move out over the things of the world. Perhaps I can never achieve the last, but that will be my attempt.

There is always a booth with Steve Jackson games. They love exact change there.

I was never aware of these kind of games in my past visits, but now that I am aware, I hope to spot more.
