My continued coverage of the Explay Festival.
Day two of the Explay conference continued to cement the prevalence of developers and companies active in the South West. After registering attendees milled around the conference floor, where two gaming cabinets vied for their attention. The first of the these is the mighty Plymatron, an arcade cabinetbased on the designs of the Canadian Bit Collective's Winnitron.
I'm down in Plymouth this weekend covering the first, well sort of, Explay festival. This is the first long form Explay event, there was a single evening event held last year, an event that kicked off the Explay community network. The network of South Western developers was celebrating its one year anniversay tonight, so I can't quite call it the first Explay event.
