rAge Expo 2015 – Johannesburg

by Duncan

Skadonk Showdown was lucky enough to be part of the rAge expo 2015, where it got its first large audience public playtesting. Play sessions averaged between 5 minutes to 30 minutes, as players wanted to test out all of the game modes and challenge each other to who was the better driver. The highlight of the expo for us was a group of kids returned to the stall every day to play for 30 minutes at a time.

The game’s theme was a hit with the local crowds, and we were interviewed by a couple of local journalists about the game:

“Skadonk Showdown is probably our favourite game from the Home Coded stand. Not only is it an absolute blast, but it is the most South African game we’ve ever seen.”
 – Clinton Matos

“The crazy, silly, stereotype-fueled racing game that is Skadonk Showdown is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.”
