Notes from Denise (~madmac)
This years ECTS was my first, or like Paul Harvey said, I also was a ECTS-virgin. It was a perfect combination of girls games and contacts. I met a lot of interesting people and got a great idea of the industry I'm about to enter. In my case it was even more excited because I had some appointments with big companies. My FreeFall project will probably be developed by "Engine Software" and we had to find a publisher for it. I was joint at some appointments. The reactions were rather positive. I got backstage at Sony and I heard that EIDOS was very positive too. So you can imagine how excited I was. Paul Harvey made a QuickTimeVR of the show (813k). It' gives an impression of the show. There are sadly some pics missing, but one side is worth watching .
