SCS is at GamesCom

We've spent a couple of days visiting GamesCom, the most important European gaming exhibition, taking place in Cologne, Germany. We are not among the exhibitors; truck games genre unfortunately doesn't generate such fortunes for us to be able to spend them on expensive promotion. We have come to talk business - in addition to public halls, two of the expo ground halls are reserved for trade visitors to network among themselves, and that's where we are spending most of the time. We can build the games, but we rely on our publishing and distribution partners to manufacture the boxes, to get them into retail stores and ultimately into your hands. Finding the right partnerships for publishing can make or break a game, it is at least as important as building a decent quality game.

We have also spent some time in the expo halls. They are awfully loud, very crowded, and mostly focused on the male visitors, as you can perhaps appreciate from the following sample photos.

  3. From me too - hope it worked good for you. :-)

    It's understable that you have not own place/booth on GamesCom -- but Rondomedia have one, I thought they'll present ETS2 (on the other hand, maybe is too early, maybe is still not right time to present it, I don't know...) Anyway, it's important that you've been there and made some business talk.

  9. Excellent, SCS! I hope that you will be a big feature someday at these exhibitions! as for the distributors, you're better off with staying with excalibur and rondomedia. if you're going to US distribution, don't have any partnership with valusoft.

  10. Thanks SCSSoftware for posting darn hot chicks!

    Its understandable that you guys are unable to pay booth/place. Hopefully someday when the company is more larger and could afford it (Someday, I'm sure.)

    Thanks again for hot chicks
    (:

  11. Typical industry (most any one, to that), selling stuff using sex. And no, don't want to see half-naked hunks just to "make up". Whoever use this cheap trick should spend their money on something more beneficial instead. dc:

    Like, say, giving SCS the money! Yeah! (c;

    As for the rest, I hear you, and wish you all the best in finding distributors and publishers for your, unfortunately, niche games. Indeed, there is so much more to creating any game than simply being able to put it together, which in itself is a challenge to stick to. Again, all the best to you, SCS, hope you find just what you need. (c:

    Oh, and no more "chicks", please. dc:

  12. I hope in a good distribution in all the countries who have a great base of fan...

    and i hope a graet distribution in Italy, like GTS (with gamestop).

    By the way, we want some good news on gameplay after your "work vacation" at GamesCom, and whe want soon!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'd like ETS could be as GTS or UK tuck simulator, I mean I could afford for my car, buy garages, hire drivers to Work to me, an so on.
    The game is good for training but I think it could be important to teach the gamer a Way of doing a business, that could be nice, do not you see?

    ReplyDelete
  14. here becomes worse and worse. the game becomes as bad as gts

    ReplyDelete
  15. TruckerGal i agree with you so theirfor I am sorry for what I am about to say.

    Dexter and other who thinks like him (like Anonymous and Eric_hc) are pigs. If all you can see is nudety you're pervs.

    On the other hand if this is what you want, just google porn and you will find more vids than you can possobli watch in your lifetime.

  16. What a surprise that men/boys likes girls and cars/truck
    Are u religious by any chance?
    Get a life...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Anonymous you don`t like the girls?...you are gay?...and the game will be awesome keep up the good work

    ReplyDelete
  18. How gay can you be saying that you don't like the girls ?

    ReplyDelete
  19. SCS Do not like Trucks & Trailers on the screen just as in the German Truck Simulator. Picture what I mean

  20. Although I totally understand where TruckerGal is coming from, and to an extent would agree that a picture like that may not be relevent to this site, I did enjoy the picture (sorry TruckerGal) the blond is all kinds of fine and brunette is ok (normally I prefer brunette even if my fiancee is blond)

    By the way please refrain from calling people gay just because they express displeasure at seeing half naked women. There are a lot of deeply religious people in this world offended by such sights.

    ReplyDelete
  21. News about ETS 2 PLEASE

    ReplyDelete
  22. ok sorry for that but i`m tired of people who don't like the naked girls but they jerk off daily in front of pc and on internet they are against of half naked woman...even they are very cute girls. And about the game we wait for news and gameplay video please

    ReplyDelete

  24. Franchement, sans parler à un individu particulièrement.

    Arrêtez-vous pleindre tout le temps, il devient lourd à ouvrir un débat sur chaque article de ce blog .. il ya rien de pornographique là .. réveiller un peu et de cesser d'argumenter sur chaque poste de ce blog ça devient vraiment gênant ...

    Vous vous plaignez sans cesse, être très heureux et joyeux comme un petit studio SCS nous communiquer des informations sur leurs jeux assez souvent.

    Et cesser de débattre sur quelque chose de complètement stupide ..
    Je n'ai aucun ordre à donner, je sais, mais juste essayer de faire passer pour vous empêcher de prendre la tête pour rien et regarder un petit côté positif de ce blog.

    Désolé pour mon mauvais anglais.

    Titou
    ------------------------------------------
    Frankly, without speaking to an individual particulary.

    Stop pleindre you all the time, it becomes cumbersome to open a debate on each item on this blog .. there is nothing pornographic in there .. wake up a bit and stop arguing about every post of this blog it gets really annoying ...

    You complain constantly, be quite happy and joyful as a small studio SCS we communicate information on their games quite often.

    And stop debating on something completely stupid ..
    I have no orders to give I know, but just trying to get across to stop you taking the lead for nothing and look a little positive side of this blog.

    Sorry for my bad english.

    Titou

    ReplyDelete
  25. And then ...
    This blog is not dedicated that to ETS2! .. so it's no use to cry when there is another news that ETS2.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Exactly, Titou. Finally one rational comment.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well, I certainly hope straight guys do not mind looking at women, for sure. At the right time and place, at least. Just a tad tired of the endless exposure of skin to promote something that people actually are interested in anyway (in this case; commercials on TV is another matter best left out of this blog). (c;

    And yes, please stop using gay as a insulting word, or picking on any religion. Also, please stop arguing in the blog or make threatening demands. OK? SCS freely choose to create it, they are far more forthcoming than many big companies. I am certain they focus on work as well, so I rather they do that than post here, to be honest. That said, I do soak up every bit they give us, ha! (c:

    So, again, I wish SCS best of luck with tying new business contact and looking forward to learn more in time (but not as much as I look forward to the game, narmean?).

  28. LOL girls are better than games.. :P
    Anonymous (August 21, 2011 12:46 PM ) is gay or he doesn't have a social life.. and i want your sister :)

  29. "TruckerGal i agree with you so theirfor I am sorry for what I am about to say." (August 21, 2011 12:46 PM)

    This is me, so just to defend myself. I'm not gay. I am not religios active. I like girls and I have seen them naked before (on screan and in real life) when that's been said. This is not the place for nudity. This is where we discuss STC games, moustly ETS 2 at the time.

    I do not know why SCS posted that pickture here. This is not the rigth place. (when thats been said I watched the girls, and they are ok.)

    To- Eric_hc: I have not a sister, but good luck at my 18 year old brother. (that is if you still want one of my siblings) If not my female cousine is good lucking and free. Just come to Norway. Eric if you like girls better than games. Get oway from this blogg and go watch porn.

    TruckerGal is a girl, I am a boy. If someone want to continue this argument, your welcome. But come with something (like information, statisicks etc.) not only he's that and she's that!

  30. hi can you put in ets2 a big varieti of trucks like scania http://www.mascus.com/image/product/large/hexon/Scania-T-124-360-Longline-Top,2482160-1.jpg
    and like this http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TF2sN098crY/TfDGe57QHBI/AAAAAAAABdQ/DBkJqCOhAwM/s1600/Volvo-Trucks-2.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  31. The volvo on this link: (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TF2sN098crY/TfDGe57QHBI/AAAAAAAABdQ/DBkJqCOhAwM/s1600/Volvo-Trucks-2.jpg)
    Is an american truck. I do not belive that this belong in EURO Truck Simulator 2. (To answer your comment you wil come to what I wrote: Yes I have seen american trucks in Europa/Scandinavia. But they are not cheap to inport.)

    When It comes to the picture of the women, I think SCS posted it to start a discussion. They wanted to test us, in terms of language, swearing, faxt etc.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I thought it would be great if SCS could include two types of gameplay/gamemodes in ETS2 to choose when you start new game. First "ARCADE" like we know from ETS or GTS for less demanding players (kids etc.) and 2nd "PROFESSIONAL" like OMSI (using mouse to click all the buttons, more realistic driving) for advanced player who likes real simulators. It's like difficulty level in most games.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What is the problem of SCS post a picture with girls? If you don't like, many people likes it (and you are probaly gay)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Luke you have a great idea. But it is the lack of money who is in the way.

    Anonymous 2:02, that comment inside (here) was rued. I think someone can say that it is wrong to post half naked women to premote a game. I think SCS did this to get the word out about this blog. My oppinion is that non of the women on the pick are espesially pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  35. hey scs,

    are there some news about ets2?

  37. most of you are retard.NOBODY SAIS "I DON`T LIKE GIRLS!BUT YOU ARE SO N00B THAT YOU CAN`T WALK!I`M NOT INTERESTED IF SCS PUT ANOTHER NEWS BUT WE WANT NEWS ABOUT ETS2 NOPT GIRLS!YOU THINK WITH YOUR ASS!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hope the trip to GamesCom was fruitful devs, and you will be able to strike a deal with some new publishers. :)
    Keep it up!

    It is however sad to see that there are still people who think that writing something to the same message 300 times will magically generate new blog entries. They are still wrong.

    That said, I second the notion wrote by several visitors that it would be timely to spill the beans a bit on the planned gameplay features and possible updates on that field as well. Seeing pictures on the environment and traffic is great, but they can get boring overtime - the pictures on the overtaking traffic was a nice refreshment in this respect as it actually shed light on an important gameplay aspect.

    SCS actually don't want to post here, if you are so annoying....also i wouldn't post...

    Stop being annoying and wait for the news, if they have full hands of work they actually don't have time for blog and read these retarded comments where news is written 300 times and constantly asking for progress and requesting features...and I think that they aren't so stupid that they don't know what should simulator have in game play....

    So calm down and wait,

  48. Hello, why not change the sounds for ETS 2, but put several tot realistic sounds.
    Not like GTS or ETS, as they are not real.
    I suggest to change the horn, the sound of the engine, the acceleration depending on the engine.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I THINK ITS NOW TIME FOR SCREENSHOTS AND I MEAN NO PICTURE§S OF TWO GIRLS OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS WE WOULD PICTURES OF ETS2!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am still amazed by the reaction of the "crowd", every time I enter this blog.
    The whole "girl photo" thing is meant to be a joke. Of course, publishers will use everything available (including half - nudity) to sell their products, so you shouldn't be more upset for it than you are for looking at pictures of babies on the box of powder milk. The whole discussion about using some girls to promote a product that has nothing to do with nudity is too complicated and not worth going to. Those girls get paid for what they do, they are over eighteen and are totally aware of what they're doing.
    The fact that SCS posted this photo should be taken as an amusing fact and no more. The day you'll see naked drivers in the cab of your truck, created by SCS, that's when you should express your disagreement. But that won't ever happen, so relax.

    Best wishes and enjoy your trip, SCS. Good luck with your work.
