It’s hard to believe that this was already our third PAX East! Time really does fly, and this one felt like it came and went in an instant. It was – as always – a lot of fun. We met a lot of cool people and caught up with a few others we’ve met in years past. We attended panels, we bought overpriced convention food, and we of course played some video games.

Of the games I played, the ones that stood out to me the most were Below by Capybara Games and Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime by Asteroid Base. Below has an amazing atmospheric feel to it that I was drawn into immediately, and the gameplay felt really great despite controlling such a small character on screen. Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime is actually a game I had been waiting to get my hands on for a long time and boy did it live up to my expectations. I’m a sucker for good co-op, especially when it’s used in new and creative ways- just like in Lovers. You and your co-op buddy run frantically around a spaceship, trying to multitask between different weapons and shields while also moving towards little AI bunny-people that need your help. My friend Sean and I didn’t last very long before being destroyed but I loved every second of it.

PAX East 2013

Man, PAX East 2013 came and went like *that*. One moment, Matt and I(and some friends) were driving up there listening to some stand-up, and the next moment we’re somberly driving back, listening to some more stand-up, our chuckles tinged with nostalgia for the people and panels of PAX.

When we went last year, it was as mere students, naive enough to stand in ridiculous demo lines and only chatting up a few familiar faces. This year, we came equipped with Lunch War, as ambassadors of our foolish dream: to not get lost in the sea of freemium social games and poorly-localized clones available on the App Store. We had a site up, business cards made, and three-day passes bought well ahead of time.

Did we do okay? I think we made out okay. We showed Lunch War to many an amiable developer and fellow PAX-goer and caught up with friends made at last year’s convention and this year’s IndieCade East. We got a lot of positive and constructive feedback that we’re eager to put to good use “going forward with the Lunch War brand.”

It was a super great time, and we can’t wait to do it again next year! Hopefully with a booth like this guy.

It’s almost time for PAX East 2013 and what better way to ring in all the lanyard-wearing, panel note-jotting cheer than with by reliving the excitement of last year’s trip?

Here’s a small gallery of some nice folks we met while there:
