    EDIT - on a side note, i didn't see one other forum badge at East this year. :( Hopefully will run into more people at Prime. :D

    I see a typo on the back side! I'm having a hard time reading "Exists" as a noun. :O

    On the topic of the design, I too love this design! I may have been born at the very end of the 80's, but I still played a couple of adventure games when I was little. (I stopped because I got lost in a maze.)

    @kropotkin you magnificent bastard, you didn't take any cookies from the gaming table at East.

    But you still gave me my forum badge.

    Not going to forget to post in this thread this time.

    Used a forum badge last year for Prime, met some interesting people (including, I believe, the mastermind behind the badges). Count me in again this year.

    So what's a forum badge? I missed a lot of the extra community stuff last year so I have no clue what this is

    It's a badge you attach to your normal PAX badge that identifies you as a forum user to others at PAX as you walk around the convention.

    Thanks for the feedback all. I was worried that some of you may be too young to appreciate the Infocom reference, but you have allayed my fears on that score. I'm working on making the back more descriptive now. Stay tuned!

    Nope, it's a great idea! I played so much Zork when i was younger. The box art on the front of the badge is a real nice touch. I had forgotten the look of the boxes until i saw the badge. :D

    Please do. It does take a significant amount of effort to make them and to the more people wear them, the more useful they are.

    Yes! Get your badges! So i can high five you or something when i see you on the floor! My only badge related experience at East this year was one person saw mine and said hello but they didn't pick theirs up (or maybe they just weren't wearing it, i can't remember exactly).

    I have to say I love having the forum badge. We were at the Double Fine after party last year and I got stopped by someone who recognized my forum handle. It was really great to be able to talk to them in person.

    The back of that badge makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Great concept. Also, I LOVE the green-on-dark theme. That's what all my command lines end up looking like in production. ;)

    Some of the pics i saw on the googles showed yellow lines on the old zork boxes. I thought they were white though.

    The lines came in all kinds of colour, the important part is the gray box.

    I am kinda partial to this box myself~

    I developed the background using a Zork box, but I can modify it via the magic of Photoshop!
