 No No NO Well, hello there!

Hello everyone!  Wink
First time post here~ Tongue
Actually I heard this forum from the sound of mystery... Cool

"The Con Simulator" is a simulation game for players who are dreaming about holding their own anime conference. In this game, you can become an eminent cosplayer, gamer, streamer or singer, stand out and become the legendary "Con" organizer, save the economy of your motherland "Republic of Metropolises"!
Combining tabletop strategy cards with traditional SLG gameplay, the players are able to manage their "Con" company, invite booths & guests and compete with peers. On the other hand, they also need to deal with several real-time tasks (hire NPC, punish copyright infringement booths) & emergencies (fire hazard, thieves) during the Con as a responsible organizer.
And of course, the game is MODable. You can create your personal booths & cosplayers if you want!

This project is finished solo by myself (including music)!~





I added some of my friends into the game, including famous streamers, comic artists and game designers~







This is DGSpitzer, an individual game developer based in New York. Additionally, I'm also an artist, coder and music composer~
No No NO READY FOR THE MOSH PIT SHAKA BRAH!
You can check out all my stuff from here: http://dgspitzer.my-style.in/gameportfolio/
And my twitter handle is @DGSpitzer https://twitter.com/DGSpitzer

6 years ago, since the first time I sold my game "Eddy Violet" at a comic market in Beijing, China, an idea coming up in my mind and started growing...
"Why not make a game about Con Culture?"
After then, I started attending several Cons all over the world to collect inspirations intentionally. In NYCC, I've seen so many subculture & memes rise one after another and disappear just in one or two years; and the eager of making a game about subculture is getting stronger and stronger. So there it is, "The Con Simulator", a simulation game for players who are dreaming about holding their own anime conference. And moreover, it's also a conclusion of "Con Culture" from my angle of view.

So start from today, I'm gonna build a devlog here for my latest game "The Con Simulator"!


The game takes place in a country called Metropolises which only combined with huge cities (eh, maybe not that cyberpunk though). Unfortunately, a "glorious" depression is sweeping through the entire country due to the endless inflation here and there. At this moment, you, as an eminent streamer/cosplayer/gamer/singer, stand out and become the idol legendary "Con" organizer, make your country great again!


Here are some characters the player can choose from beginning as one of the con organizers:




As you may know, I'm the only person working on this. It took me 3 months to finish 30% of game structure so far.
I made a simulation system for the visitors. Those visitors have different "taste" about the booths, some like game or music booth, the other may like to photograph cosplayers much more. Kiss


Otherwise, they have their physiological needs, the player should build food service booths and hire NPC to satisfy them.
Please note that your sloppy management may directly cause the loss of lives. Cheesy


Suspicious food service booths




You can possess on a visitor to supervise the show, if you want.


And just finished customization function, you can draw your own cosplayers & booths~ Hand Joystick



Secretory lady for the tutorial~

Hey man! I love management sim games so this is right up my alley!
Loving the stylized art, especially the one you posted for picking the characters.
And the first-person view mode of the con is a nice touch. Though I imagine a convention could get pretty crowded and suffocating ?

Currently not sure what the card system and strategy map is for though haha

Hello! Yep the card system is for the map interface in which you can choose the exhibit hall to hold your Con and making decision against the opponents. The card has various of PR abilities such as "Build up fan-community", "Promoting", "Loan", "Crow-funding".  Cheesy

And the total number of visitors for now is decided by the player's reputation property. It'll be really crowded after the player getting higher reputation~  Wink
