The day before we held TennoCon 2017, our second annual Warframe convention, in July, I worked late into the night. Of course I wasn’t the only one! Our team here at Digital Extremes burned the midnight oil polishing the Plains of Eidolon demo while trying to calm their nerves before presenting the biggest reveal we’ve ever done to our players; our Community team and I went over our panels, convention duties, and various interviews, and all of it was done to ensure that our players, community, and attendees would have an incredible Warframe-themed experience that took months of planning and organization.

Hey, I'm Gabriel, the sole creator of Jettomero. I've been working on this game for over two years and I'm so excited to be launching on Xbox One today. Jettomero has been a strange game evolving very organically throughout the development process. It has drawn from a variety of influences to form what I believe is a unique and engaging experience.
