Three important things
Sakura-con is coming up in just about a week and Tycho and I will be there as usual. We’ll be doing a panel on Friday at 2:30 and we’ll have a bunch of our new shirts at the booth. You should swing by and say hi if you’re in the area.
Early bird registration for PAX (the only man made convention viewable from space) ends on the 31st which is only ten days away. We’re already getting game independent game submissions for the PAX 10 which is great considering how early it is. We’ll be taking submissions until May 7th and the top 10 will be presented at PAX. For all the details and rules for submitting your game hit the PAX 10 site. Also, if you have something interesting to say to the PAX audience or you know someone who does please hit the panel/speaker submission page and drop us a line.
Earlier this week we announced the return of the Penny Arcade scholarship. This is our second year doing it and I really enjoy the process. Sifting through the candidates and choosing one is ridiculously hard but I feel like the end result is something pretty special. Basically we want you to tell us how you plan on making an impact in the game industry. We’ll give the winning student a $10,000 scholarship. You can get all the details and application forms on the official site located here.
As a funny aside, I actually misspelled scholarship both times I wrote it up there. Turns out there is an "a" in it. Who knew. Anyway, that seemed sort of ironic to me.
