AGI is attending a game unveiling in Seattle, is it Bejeweled?? 10 years 10 months ago #345295

Hopefully I'm not hallucinating here so feel free to correct me. But I could have sworn AGI recently ended their 1.0 run, promoting an event they were going to be attending in Seattle after E for All. I recall it was an event put on by a publisher/developer for a new game announcement. Could this be it?http://www.joystiq.com/2008/09/29/popcap-spinning-out-bejeweled-twist-for-october/From article:PopCap games has announced Bejeweled Twist, a "new spin on the match-3 genre" is due out next month. The game will be officially unveiled October 27 at an event at Seattle's Experience Music Project Sci-Fi Museum and Hall of Fame. It will launch as a $20 download on PopCap's website.As to what the new "twist" on the genre will be, PopCap isn't saying. The game has reportedly been in development for three years, so we're curious what they've done with that time aside from swimming in a pool of casual gamers' money. Our best guess is that they've taken the Bejeweled board and rotated it 45 degrees. What a twist!__________________I'd hate for AGI's surprise to be ruined thanks to Joystiq of all places (where I spotted this), but did PopCap themselves already remove the curtain? I really hope I'm wrong but I couldn't resist being the first to point out the connection :)Seattle? check.Sci-Fi Museum? check.Well-known developer? check.October? check. (if I recall it was next month)Either way, very cool that AGI will be there if it's true. The PopCap press release claims it is "the first such launch event in casual games history."

During DPL Scot also mentioned it again and him being involved in an unveiling at Seattle at the Sci-Fi Museum and he didn't want to mention the developer because he thought people would get the wrong impression.I guess it all fits perfectly.

Do you know what the actual twist of the game is or are you oblivious like us.

I have school that night, damn. Otherwise the 4hr trek down there might have been worth it.

I don't know anything, and the event is not open to the public.
