Xona Games is featured in the Nova Scotia government's "Your Studio Here" promotions. Along with our recent trip to the world's largest game development conference (GDC 2011) earlier this month, here are some of the promotions that feature us:

As already mentioned, check out footage of the GDC booth NSBI helped put together. This is no small task. Our company and games were showcased on the GDC floor right next to Google, Nintendo, and IGF, the most popular independent gaming organization. I want to send out thanks to NSBI and Jayson Hilchie for their continued support of Xona Games and other Nova Scotian studios.
