Let’s talk about PAX baby, let’s talk about you and me, let’s talk about all the contests we are running to get free hotel rooms and tickets. Every year there is a mystery person who purchases multiple tables at our Child’s Play auction and then asks us to give them away. We honestly have no idea who this ridiculously generous person is and I guess that’s the way he likes it. This year he’s gone a step further and purchased eight hotel rooms in downtown Seattle for the weekend of PAX. These are great locations and each room will come with two 3 day passes for the show. So we need to give these away and we figured that since our 7 word Warcraft contest was so popular we’d try the same idea again. Also we’re lazy.
So if you’d like to win one of these hotel rooms and two passes to PAX all you need to do is describe to us your PAX experience in exactly seven words. You can mail your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. We only have a few rules:
- You must be able to use the prize. If you can’t actually come to Seattle and use the passes and the hotel please don’t enter. That just isn’t cool.
- One entry per person.
- You must submit your entry by Wednesday July 16th at midnight to be eligible.
- It must be exactly seven words long and it must describe your PAX experience.
In other PAX related news, we’ve announced the winners of our PAX 10 competition. You can hit the official site for a list of the 10 winning independent games that will be on display at PAX this year. We had more than 80 submissions and they spanned just about every genre imaginable. We had games with no graphics that just use sound, games that require crazy 3D controllers and even a game that is designed to simulate an orgy and must be played in the dark. Needless to say choosing our top ten was no easy task.
