Game Studios in the House!

While Dragon*Con is far from being an Industry event, we have managed to wrangle a few visitors from various game companies to come and talk to you about their games.

Artix Entertainment kicks off the weekend on Friday at 2:30 PM in the Savannah room of the Sheraton. The AQ Worlds Meet and Greet is full of goodies, sing-alongs and more. It promises to be a blast.

At 5:30 PM on Friday, also in Savannah, Zack “Jick” Johnson, Josh “Mr. Skullhead” Nite and Kevin Simmons will be on hand to talk about their journey from hobby to profession with their home-grown satirical browser-based MMO at the Kingdom of Loathing Q&A. An adventure is you!

Over in the Piedmont room, at 7 PM Friday, Sony Online Entertainment takes over to talk with you for the DC Universe Online Meet and Greet. Linda “Brasse” Carlson, Tony “RadarX” Jones and Ted “Mepps” Stone will share the secrets of being a superhero and other information about the game. At 8:30 PM, they’ll open the floor for all of SOE’s stable of games for a Sony Online Entertainment Meet and Greet. EverQuest, EQ II, Vanguard, Planetside, Pirates of the Burning Sea, Free Realms and more. Come and see what they have to say about all the worlds they run.

Atlanta locals Hi-Rez studios will be here as well. First on Saturday at 1 PM in the Piedmont for a little Global Agenda Meet and Greet. On Sunday, they’ll return to the Piedmont room at 1 PM as Hi-Rez Studios Presents their upcoming releases. Come and see the preview.

On Saturday at 4 PM in the Savannah room, CCP will be hosting a CCP Games Meet and Greet where you can speak with the Ned Coker and Oscar Garza about EVE Online, the forthcoming Dust 514, and the eagerly anticipated World of Darkness MMO.

Also on Saturday in the Savannah room at 5:40 PM will be the Star Wars Combine Meet and Greet. Come and talk about one of the longest running Star Wars MMO’s out there. Sure, BioWare might have a game on the horizon, and these people aren’t technically a game studio, but this one is made for fans, by fans. Come and share in the love.
