QB Expo Coverage, Part #3
(8/20/2000) Forget two, baby. V Games now plans to show four games for the 2000 QB Expo, adding two new games to their lineup!
Recently, one of our new QB affiliates QBasic/QuickBasic News was one of the members of the QB community lucky enough to be part of the inner circle of developers, sponsors, and journalists able to see the 2000 QB Expo Developer's cut. While reading one of the articles from QQN, we noticed an excerpt from reporter WeezIncubuStoneS.
WeezIncubuStoneS asks V Planet, "I know it's your Expo, but is it fair to feature your games by themselves?"
That is a good question. While most of the site building outside the developer's pages have been done by V Planet, it still doesn't give our very own coding group a right to a single Expo room. To have a right to a single Expo room, it would have to do something with the fact that our in-house coding group V Games plans to have a big showing at the QB Expo.
The previous line-up of QB Expo titles announced by V Games included only two titles. One title is an update to Raven: The Yoyo Commando, V Game's first Internet release. The update to the platformer with a refined control system and a new game level. The second title from V Games was supposed to be their "secret" sports title. It turned out that this secret title would be Bald Man Boxing, V Game's first sports title using the DirectQB library. You can read more about this mysterious title by clicking here.
That adds up to a total of two titles. If V Games is planning to release two titles for the QB Expo, then there should be only two booths (in the shape of buttons) centered at V Planet Hall. But strangely enough, as you stare at the picture of the V Planet Hall above, notice that there aren't two buttons at the center of the Hall. In fact, there are four. With four booths stationed at V Planet Hall, and with three of these booths having a "?" symbol, does this mean that V Games actually has three secret games that they're planning to present to the public come Expo launch?
One thing's for sure. With V Planet Hall completed, the last room in the QB Expo has been finished. That means that the second developer's cut of the QB Expo will be released to developers and sponsors and we'll all be just one step away from having the 2000 QB Expo released to the public. That dream will be realized, and the true coverage of the QB Expo begins, when we write the sequel to this article, "QB Expo Coverage, Part #4".
