City of Games June update: Come say hello!

1st June 2023 2

I am currently on the show floor at the UK Games Expo, preparing for tomorrow’s opening, and am no doubt running around like a lost puppy trying to get everything ready. If you are attending, then I’d love to say hello. I’ll be at stand 1-823 for the entire show.

This month’s update will be a brief one, as I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of ships crossing the ocean. However, I can assure you that next month holds the promise of exciting developments!

Product updates

The Isle of Cats is currently running out in many stores in the US, but a restock is on the way, and it should be back in full soon.

Race to the Raft is on the ships and will hopefully arrive at my warehouses next month.

The reprints for The City of Kings and Vadoran Gardens are progressing nicely, and this week I have signed off on many of the samples needed to get things into production.

It feels great to have so much going on with multiple games, and I’m looking forward to maintaining sufficient stock of all my games moving forward.

Publisher lessons

This month in publisher lessons I discussed the following topics:

An update on Frank

I am not sure how it happened, but I am now a fan of sumo wrestling and have spent the last two weeks watching the May 2023 Grand Sumo tournament. It was a lot of fun, and I look forward to the next event. I’m also eagerly awaiting the release of Diablo 4 next week and hoping I’ll find some time to play it.

Until next time

There are a lot of small things going on right now, and over the next few weeks, I’ll be reviewing files for The City of Kings reprint, preparing for the Race to the Raft fulfillment, and working on a couple of small secret projects!

Have a great month.

    Thanks a lot for the updates. As usual everything is perfect, well managed and awesome. It is not so obvious. Have a nice summer! Waiting for playing the game
