Electroconcierge 2019

January 3 — February 1, 2019


~
I am your Electroconcierge. On behalf of Babycastles, I would like to welcome you to me, The Electroconcierge. May I take your coat? Please, step right this way.

Here at our location in the MIVS section of MAGFest, we boast an assortment of Independently Developed Games whose contents, I believe, you will find... most intriguing.

I sense that you are a person of discerning taste--might I suggest our Merchandise Table, where we offer garments and goods of the highest caliber?

A bit peckish? Our chefs have prepared various exquisite cuisines available at our Cafe. Stop by for a plate of "Soylent Pancakes", or, our world-renowned dish, "Chicken Nugget with Jelly Bean".

Throughout your stay, we will be hosting an assortment of events, such as Online Dating with Gorilla, Video Game Tournaments, and of course, our grand midnight celebration, "Sweet Sixth Eve". I do hope to see you there.

Oh no, a tip is unnecessary--it is my pleasure to welcome you, MAGFest. (-;

Sincerely,
Your Electroconcierge
