On Friday night (9/1), we will be at the MIX Showcase at PAX West where we will be showing Bounty Battle, Trackless, Flash Point: Fire Rescue, Kingdoms and Castles, and KnightOut. If you’re at PAX, stop by, say hello, and play some games with us! Tickets for the MIX event are totally free and you can register on their website.
On Saturday, SWERY (Hidetaka Suehiro) will be doing a PAX panel where he’ll be giving more details about his Fig campaign for The Good Life, a mystery RPG where everyone turns to cats at night.
Not at PAX? No problem! The panel will be livestreamed on Twitch at 4:30 PST and the full campaign will be open to the public at that time. Check it out!
