Gamescape is part of Baltimore’s Artscape, the largest free arts festival in the USA, with an attendance of over 350,000 visiting over three days.
We brought our proof-of-concept prototype to the show to assess demand and see how a general audience would react. The turnout was incredible! Hundreds of people raced the Cardiac course while we updated the software live in response to feedback. By the end of the event, we had a good base to work off of, and proved that Cardiac had the universal appeal we were hoping for.

Firaxis (best known for the games “Civilization” and “XCOM: Enemy Unknown”) hosted IGDA‘s independent games showcase. We were honored to be included! Seasoned developers and gamers provided valuable insight into our design process and assumptions, which will make Cardiac that much better upon release.
