To give credence to the old saying “better late than never” we are finally getting around to our Post PAX Update. Please forgive us! We’ve been pedal to the metal, all hands on deck, crunching it out, etc, etc ever since our return from Boston. It’s worth it though as you’ll be seeing Tanks for the Memories on Google Play (formerly known as the Android Marketplace) very soon. Like, April 25th, soon.
But back to PAXeast. What an incredible event. We were blown away by the sheer size of the thing. The Boston Convention and Event Center is a beast of a building at 160,000 sqft. We all definitely got our exercise hoofing it from panel to panel to the booth and back to panels. Here’s just a quick run down of some of our favorite panels of the weekend:
- Plot vs Play - The Duality of Modern Game Design
- Border, Bigotry, and Body Dumps: International Video Game Controversies
- Irrational Games: How to Make a Monster
- N00dz or GTFO: Harassment in Online Gaming
- The Good, The Bad, The Community Manager/PR Rep. AKA How Keeping It Real Can Go So Wrong
Our booth was a great success as well! We had a huge number of people stop by to play Tanks for the Memories and talk about Laika Believes. Just like GDC and SXSWi, we got some great feedback and have been implementing a ton of changes which make Tanks that much more fun to play. We’re really excited to be this close to release. We can’t wait to share Tanks for the Memories with you!
