Back to News Listing A space hero among us

Posted: Friday, June 7, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games and Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) announce their participation at HISTORICON, a gaming convention devoted to historical gaming, which takes place in Fredericksburg, VA over 4 days in July each year. 

HISTORICON draws thousands of gamers from around the world together with a variety of vendors offering everything needed to recreate historical or fictional conflicts throughout the ages and beyond. Scenarios range from ancient history to the modern era, while some even create games from the rich worlds of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. There are tournaments, seminars and a Hobby University of painting classes and events.

During the event, on the 18th and 19th July, Slitherine Group will host its annual press conference to discuss and present its forthcoming projects to industry journalist, developers, guests and personalities. The most important will without doubt be Dr. Buzz Aldrin, former U.S. Air Force combat pilot (66 missions in Korea) and NASA astronaut, who took part in the first Moon landing mission and became the second human being to walk on the Moon.

Dr Aldrin’s attendance will undoubtedly thrill and delight event attendees. He is collaborating with Slitherine and their developer Polar Motion in the creation of Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager which depicts the race to conquer outer space.

Slitherine is proud to be associated with Dr. Aldrin and his presence at the event will be an exciting and memorable moment for everyone associated with the press conference and Historicon. “We are grateful for the opportunity to thank Buzz for the tremendous support and encouragement that he is giving to the entire team who are working on the project. His input and expansive knowledge of the game subject matter is unique and unmatchable” said JD McNeil Slitherine’s  CEO.
