Portal Games Announces Lineup at Essen

Jess: Headed to Essen soon? Take me with you!

Portal Games has announced their schedule of events, autographing, new titles, and more!

This year they will be showing off four new titles: Alien Artifacts, First Martians, Cry Havoc: Aftermath, and Iron Gang. I’ve been seeing some really exciting posts about Alien Artifacts so I can’t wait to see it (but being stuck here I guess I’ll wait. If you can’t tell I’m a bit salty about not being able to go to Essen).

They also have an all-star line-up of designers, artists, and talent to meet at their booth (#3O118)! You have a chance to get autographs and play Alien Artifacts with the designers (my jealousy knows no bounds)!

On Thursday, October 26 Portal is hosting three events in the Mailand conference room.

Jess: If you are attending Essen this year definitely check out the Portal events and please do me a solid and enjoy the heck out of the conference for me?
