1503 A.D. – The Game of the Year is introduced at the Games Convention SUNFLOWERS and Max Design are looking forward to welcoming large numbers of visitors. No games fan should miss the chance of an extensive game trial. Interested gamers can visit the Electronic Arts stall (Hall 3, Stall D10) and lose themselves in the exciting world of 1503 A.D.. Exclusively for the Games Convention, the two graphic artists Ulli Koller and Claudia Gerhardter from the Max Design developer team will be present and ready to answer all your questions regarding 1503 A.D.. “The Games Convention is a great opportunity for us to introduce 1503 A.D. personally. Maintaining close contact to game fans is very important to us. Even when we were working on the very successful predecessor 1602 A.D., the suggestions and ideas of our customers were of utmost significance for us. The cooperation with the international community was strengthened even more when we worked on 1503 A.D. Without the fans valuable contributions, 1503 A.D. would not have become the fantastic game experience it is. We are delighted to be able to present the title to a large audience for the first time at the Games Convention”, said Sabine Kaiser, Marketing Manager at SUNFLOWERS. After the award winning and internationally extremely successful 1602 A.D., 1503 A.D. is the second top title by the Austrian developer Max Design. 1602 A.D. still is the best-selling game of all times in Germany.** 1503 A.D. is the PC game of the year – come and see for yourself!
