Back to News Listing Origins : June 24-27, 2004

Posted: Thursday, June 24, 2004 by Matrix Support

Type: Review

Well we are back from Origins 2004 and we had a great time. The show was a major success and we got to finally meet so many of you and just chat. Sales for our newest games War in the Pacific, Starshatter and Steel Panthers World At War General Edition were fast and furious. Visit Origins website.

We also tried something new this year and set up a webcam at the show. We did it more for a gag but over 1,000 of you were online looking to see what was going on, and even maxed out the webcam system. Hopefully next time it will be just as successful! I just want to take a moment to thank Keith Brors from 2by3 Games, Dave O'Connor and Paul Scobell from Panther Games, Rowan and Joyce Keating from Strategic Studies Group and Russ Pearlman from Koios Works for taking their time and attending the show with us. I also like to thank Julie Kershenbaum from Armchair General and Winnie Wong from Alienware for sponsoring Matrix Games during its 2004 World Tour. Last but not least the Matrix team itself. Thank you one and all for making this a great show.
