SAY WHAAAAAAAT!?!?!? That’s right, I am going to PAX East. What is PAX East? PAX, which is short for Penny Arcade Expo is a gaming conference. I think Wikipedia may list it as a festival. Anyway, it is done is several places throughout the year. This conference is happening in Boston on April 5th-8th. I guess I will need to pack my bags and get ready to head north.
The thought of showcasing my game to a crowd of 80K-100K people makes me very excited…and extremely nervous. Will they like me? Will they like the game? I usually worry about what to wear. The good news is I have that on lock. You’ll be able to find me in my game jacket and yellow sneakers. I might mix it up and wear my pink sneakers. It’s nice to have a uniform because that’s one less thing to worry about.
I am an official selection of the Indie MEGABOOTH. What does that mean? It means someone read my application, viewed my video, and thought I was intriguing enough to come along for the ride. The Indie MEGABOOTH is the largest booth space on the expo floor and I will showcase the game on Friday and Sunday alongside some of the most innovative and talented independent game developers. This is a wonderful opportunity and I am very happy to do it!
The conference is a four day event and I want to be sure to maximize my time and exposure. I will showcase the game in the Playcrafting booth on Thursday and Saturday. Needless to say, I am going to be very busy.
