PAX is definitely something else, we could not have anticipated the amount of feedback and visitors that we got. It was well worth all the countless hours spent on an airplane and the harsh Boston temperatures, we strongly recommend it to all developers and visitors. The organizers and support team at PAX and the Indie MEGABOOTH were some of the best that we ever had the pleasure to work with.
It was also a great opportunity to mingle with developers, it’s always great to be able to share, and learn, from others. It’s a great place to get in touch with publishers, artists, marketers, and fans. Our only regret is not being able to play most of the games available, there was simply no free time, even with 3 of our team members there.
If you are an indie developer looking to boost your visibility and establishing critical contacts, PAX is the event for you. Be sure to plan it appropriately, it will save you quite a few troubles. Get power adapters beforehand, take 2-3 times more flyers or giveaways, use rollups or take appropriate hanging material. Due to lack of professional grade duct tape, we ended up using Velcro everywhere, not a great solution.
If you have not already, be sure to check the new tabs available for additional Story, Gameplay and Media. We will be back next week with new development updates.
