View Full Version : Events in Montréal This November

Hi everyone,

I know most of you live far far away from us here in Montréal but I wanted to let you know about some events this month where you could catch an in-person glimpse of DX3 and talk to the development team.

----------------
November 7, 8, 9
Festival Arcadia (http://www.festivalarcadia.com/)

http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/ares7777/arcadia.jpg

This is a huge public/consumer trade show where we (Eidos) will have a booth showing off Tomb Raider Underworld, FEAR 2, Lego Batman, and of course Deus Ex 3. But before you get too excited, no DX3 will not be playable, but we will have a tonne of art on display which hasn't been seen in public yet and members of the dev team may be there to talk to. On top of that, on the Saturday, there is a real fashion show where some Montréal designers made outfits for Lara Croft. With an actual runway and models, these outfits will be judged and the winning outfit will be available as downloadable content for the game. Toby Gard, the creator of Lara, will be there, and that's on top of all the other gaming companies showing off their stuff. There's a tonne of other fun things happening so it should be a cool three days.

More info can be found here (http://www.festivalarcadia.com/pdf/programmation.pdf) and here (http://www.festivalarcadia.com/images/news_lara_arcadia_lrg.jpg).

----------------
November 15
Open House at Eidos Montréal (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=33462698694)

http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/ares7777/ArcadiaBanner_02.jpg

Come and visit the hottest game studio in town! We are opening our doors from 10am-5pm on Saturday November 15 where you'll be able to tour the studio, catch a glimpse of who-knows-what(!), and talk to members of the DX3 development team. The atmosphere should be quite lively and entertaining as we'll be having contests and doing other fun things. It's also a great chance to drop off a CV. You can find more details and pictures in the Facebook event (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=33462698694)!

----------------
November 18-19
Montréal International Games Summit (MIGS) (http://www.sijm.ca/2008/)

http://www.sijm.ca/2008/wp-content/themes/sijm/images/header_en.gif

MIGS is really more of a professional industry event (think GDC) and I'm not even sure about its public availability, however Edge is giving away tickets (http://www.edge-online.com/features/win-free-tickets-montreal-summit) including two nights in a nearby hotel. When it comes to Deus Ex, our Art Director Jonathan Jacques-Belletête will be giving a presentation entitled "Stylised Realism in Character Art" (related to DX3, no?) and the Keynote speech will be from some guy called Warren Spector. I dunno. Never heard of him...

So anyway, I know these are probably inaccessible to most of you, however if anyone lives in or around Montréal, there's a lot happening this month!

I envy you, I really do. Can we non-Quebecois have some photos and information after the events, at least?

If I can get there, I'll take pics and notes. Assuming that they don't confiscate the camera because of an NDA :D

Well, I live about an 20 hour flight away from Montreal so it's a no go for me. :(

But I request that many photo's are taken by those who go. If allowed. I would love to see them.

OPEN HOUSE 15.11.08

Well where to begin?

I had the opportunity to talk a long time with most of the staff (the accountant ^^, the producer, the writer, lead and junior designers, DX1's AI senior, guys from the marketing) and to know much more about the game and what they're doing. They were extremely nice and opened to discussion.

I think I stayed more than two hours. :scratch: By now they should be eating the cake I brought, it's soooo good. (as good as in France!)

Unfortunately we couldn't take any pictures but that's understandable. It really looks like that they are now settled and ready to expand. They can play the pool and sit on sofas: it's a real castle!!

If you want to know something I'll try to help you.

By the way if you have questions for Warren Spector, please send them to me here or by PM, I should meet him but that's not certain.

See you for the MIGS and many thanks to Eidos Montreal.

Jerion
15th Nov 2008, 23:36

It was definitely a tonne of fun this weekend. To Jordan, I'm sorry I couldn't spend as much 1-on-1 time with you but there was a million little things to look after. However, I am glad that you could talk with so many dev team members, and the cake was awesome!

Hi all,

Late as usual but here are a few pictures from the Festival Arcadia. I know we are a Deus Ex 3 forum but unfortunately there's not much to show since we weren't talking about the game. In any case, enjoy seeing what the crew at Eidos Montréal was up to a couple weekends ago!

If you want to run and gun, you won't bother, (and wont have to) read the little snippets. For the rest of us who LIKE poking through all that its an extra little treat.

I'm STILL not sure if I've read all there is to read in DX1! That's an accomplishment!

What the hell is Deus Sx? Deus Sex?

Really, if Eidos Montreal doesn't even know that that Σ is a Sigma, which is an S, then how are they supposed to create a realistic world set in 2027?

Its a stylized Deus Ex 3. Stylized in a way to mean Deus Σ (x^3) . Meaning God is the whole Cosmos (=summation of all volume).

gamer004 really said that? Good God, looks like he's gotten even more ridiculous since I put him on ignore.

It's not supposed to be actual greek. It's "faux greek", just like the faux cyrillic used in many a product to create a Russian/soviet stylisation.
