It's that time of the year, kids! Summer is drawing to a close, and sakevisual is about to make one last convention run. Here's our schedule for the rest of the year:
MatsuriCon - August 23-25, Columbus, OH
Head writer Ayu Sakata and voice actor Micah Solusod (voice of Naoki Mizutani and Adam Eaton) are both official guests of the con. The schedule isn't up yet, but look out for Q&A sessions with each of them as well as a "Making Visual Novels" panel run by Ayu. We will have a table in the dealer's room if you want to come by and buy cool stuff or get anything signed.
AnimeFest - August 30-September 2, Dallas, TX
We will have table in the dealer's room again this year, so please look for us. Several EVN creators will be hanging out at AnimeFest as well, so if you've wanted to meet someone, there's a good chance you'll see them at this con. Deji, the lead artist for Ripples and the Jisei games will be putting in a rare appearance (flying all the way in from Chile). If you have anything you've bought in the past that you want signed by her, be sure to bring it! Our "Making Visual Novels" panel will run on Sunday at 4:00pm. Check the program book for details. On top of that, PyTom (creator of Ren'py) will be leading a Ren'py workshop in the computer lab, so this is the perfect time for anyone who wants to make a VN to come by and get started!
M.A.I. - September 14-15, Oxford, MS
Hey, Mississippi! Looks like you've got a new con, and we're honored to be a part of it. Micah and Ayu will be guests here as well, with a table for you guys to stop by at to get sakevisual games or just chat. No panel information yet, but we'll keep you updated.
