What is PAX?
GAMES! Lots and lots of games. In fact, ALL types of games you can think of – console games, PC games, mobile games, tabletop games, toys, casual games…etc. PAX is a celebration of human lives – an event that asks attendees to answer this all important question – HOW WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR FUN SERVED?
PAX is short for Penny Arcade Expo, an awesome festivals for gamers in Seattle (PAX Prime) during the summer, from Aug 31st – Sep 2nd this year. It was created by the authors of the uber popular Penny Arcade webcomic, because they wanted to a show that gave equal attention to console gamers, computer gamers, tabletop gamers, (and now, My Giants players!)
Why are we excited about PAX?
Because we will be there, showing you what we’ve got so far on My Giants! :)
What to expect?
Primarily, Domagoj and Brandon will show a work-in-progress playable demo of My Giants and answer all your burning questions about the game on the exhibition floor. It will be an early demo – rough around the edges (with placeholder art and crashes), but hopefully giving you an idea what the game is about. We will be on the 6th floor (booth number 6407) around the corner to the right from MoJang (of Minecraft’s fame).
So if you are going to PAX 2012, come say hi! We’ll be expecting you and listening to all your feedback on My Giants!
