So, after a lot of running around and my friend Jesse putting down the cash to get a booth, we're going to be showing off Gravitronix (and hopefully the start of our next game that we're working on, if we can get enough of it made for it to be presentable =) ) at PAX East!
Jesse wanted to make it something special too, so he's put together a tournament:
"To competitive gamers the world over,
While working on Gravitronix™ for WiiWare™, I was the primary playtester for the game and thus became quite good at it. So good, in fact, that I never found a player who could beat me at Gravitronix. I've decided that I'm going to find that player, and I'm going to make the search interesting.
Recently, we held a local Gravitronix tournament and it was an absolute blast. So we're going to be holding another tournament at our booth at this year's Penny-Arcade Expo East, happening in Boston, MA on March 26th-28th.
The winner of this tournament will go best 2 out of 3 rounds against me. Should they win, they will earn my blessing as the best Gravitronix player in the world, and $1,000 cold, hard cash.
Hope to see you there.
