Heute, am 16. Oktober startet im Internet (zu US-amerikanischer Zeit) die zweite Cyclops Con: Bride of Cyclops Con! Da wir nächste Woche die SPIEL.digital haben, habe ich leider nur wenig Zeit für die Cyclops Con, auch wenn ich gern einen Workshop angeboten hätte. Aber da es ein ausführliches Programm bei Twitch geben wird, kann man auch als europäischer Zuschauer (etwas zeitversetzt) viele gute Shows anschauen:
