They might not have a booth, but have stuff to show to the press. Just as Jullian Gollop did yesterday demonstrating Phoenix Point.

Is it a Paradox team that presents it?

I would rather they spend the time working on the game tbh.

This has become cliche. They can have a couple of people at E3 and the rest of the team working back in the studio. A couple of days of absense of a couple of people of the team won't change anything for the production.

Especially when you consider that the people sent to events like E3 are community facing, meaning their primary job is Public Relations.  Going to things like E3 is literally what they are paid to do.

Should be Obs team, dude with the fabulous hair could be Sking IIRC from Deadfire's last day stream.

Obs' Feargus leader said they'll look into publishing the game themselves, this tweet confused me also. Maybe Pdx is trying to sway Obs :p

I hope they do! I think I'd rather have Deadfire be smaller in scale and self-published than be a bit bigger and Paradox backed. I want to see Obsidian sail.

I see devs presenting/interviewing much more often than PR guys. And Obs can't find a better person to explain Deadfire than pro question-answerer Josh, who is not in that pic and prolly not at E3, again :/

There was a photo of Obsidian guys in Paradox booth. Because they were there it doesen't mean the game is published by Paradox. They could just went to say "hi". They're not strangers; they already have worked together!

 

About having a smaller game published by Obs than a bigger published by Paradox, the only thing I can say is that Tyranny published by Paradox was 1/4 in length of Pillars worked by Obsidian (and only much later stike a dealwith Paradox for publishing - they were not part of campaign/development).

I've just seen a Tweet from Mikey (PR Manager for Obsidian), & it seems like it's not a good news :

 

https://twitter.com/...866964526768129

 

I don't know if it will impact their E3, or if it's why they haven't communicate with us about their journey so far but...

I hope they'll have no such issue & be able to show some Deadfire soon !

Seems like a half joke tweet about something irrelevant...

Yeah, I don't know it's weird.

 

On another note, I hope there will be some Press Preview of the Game on the internet.

I remember great content for the 1st one by PC Gamer & others.

 

(Saying that I'm exited to see more is an understatement  :w00t: )

That is odd. I wonder what TOS violations they're talking about. Also, you'd think they'd warn about the TOS violations maybe.

https://twitter.com/Hyper_RPG has nothing to do with Obs/Deadfire or whatever, prolly some streamer/s Mikey follows.

Aarik's and Katrina's (who are also at E3) twitter don't have anything notable yet either.
