Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Maybe this has been discussed already but did anyone else have problems not going to PAX because of the date? I could think of no worse time in the summer to have the event then the weekend it was held. For me it was simply the fact that my college classes started that week, and with book/supply purchancing along with dozens of other things there was no way I could come. And of the all the schools in the area mine is one of the later ones to start.
The way I figure it, for those with full-time jobs it doesn't matter when it is as they will have to take off work anyways. Those of us in college have from the middle of may to the middle of august free. And finally those in high school have from the beginning of june to mid-aug free. That leaves most of june, all of july, and the beginning of august free for everyone.
So for '05 is there any problem people see in holding it at a different date? Or is this on purpose to keep numbers low due to space issues? For me I'd love to go, and even better, volunteer but I doubt I'll get the chance until '06 or '07 if the date stays as is. Obviously it's G&T's decision and if thats the only date that works for them then thats how it's going to be. Thoughts/Info?
