PAX East 2018 Forum Badge

edited October 2017 in PAX East
While we are all waiting for Penny Arcade to kick off the PAX East 2018 Bobcats AKA Passes why we don't we start designing the PAX East 2018 Forum Badge to pass the time? How does that sound? Are you with me? I SAID ARE YOU WITH ME??? There that's better. For the uninitiated the Forum Badge is an adult hand sized piece of card board that is held in a plastic sleeve that is worn during PAX East, West and now South (as of 2018) that identifies you as an active member of these very forums. We spend 5-6 months designing it prior to PAX East/West/South as a community resulting in something we all built together as a collective hive mind.

So without further ado, here are the three themes we are going to be considering for PAX East 2018 Forum Badge DRUM ROLL:

1) Indie side scrolling puzzle platformer - there are just so few of these games right? RIGHT?
2) JRPG - 200 hour SNES/Megadrive game about teenage angst in the middle of BCEC who are also fighting demons from another plane of existence.
3) PAX POX Avoidance - how not to get infected with the dreaded PAX POX (will feature a list of handy tips and will look like a first aid kit).

Please declare your selection to the themes above and we shall declare the winner on SUNDAY 19TH NOVEMBER 2017

Choose well my friends, for this thing will be dangling around your neck for 4 days so do think carefully!

  • ZeroHourHeroZeroHourHero Registered User regular
    Well, Kropotkin, I should hopefully returning home this year to PAX East, and after this many years maybe I'll get my 2nd badge (Since I was on the first EAST one)

    That being said, I vote #2

  • Le_GoatLe_Goat Frechified Goat Person BostonRegistered User regular
    As someone who seems to attract PAX POX, I'm all for #3.

    While I agree that being insensitive is an issue, so is being oversensitive.
  • gigabraingigabrain Some guy...yknow New HampshireRegistered User regular
    I'm definitely a fan of #3

    All good ideas but i think 3 is going to have to be my choice

  • jayh0vajayh0va Registered User regular
    Ahhhh. Its good to be back in East-Mode and see Kropotkin killing on the badge ideas again. :D

    It has to be #3. Despite my caution, I end up either bringing or getting POX every damn year. Maybe the badger will help.

    These badges will never be 'on sale' for this isn't the thread you are looking for!

    Also #3 is looking to be the run away success! I just hope I can pull off a first aid box.


  • Tristan3Tristan3 Registered User regular
    #2 here!

  • ZeroHourHeroZeroHourHero Registered User regular
    Its Official, I'm coming, Kropotkin. Add me to the list. 2018: The Year Zero Returns.

  • DorksmetalDorksmetal Ann ArborRegistered User regular
    i love 3

  • Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan Registered User regular
    I'd go with 2. I like 3 as well, as long as it doesn't look so much like a first aid kit that people think we have some official presence...

  • drakuldragondrakuldragon Long Island, NYRegistered User regular

    Definitely number 2. 3 Sounds pretty great though too. As always though, I'm sure I'll love whatever badge you make. Thanks for continuing to do this!

    From what I hear it's terrible, but I have the immune system of a god so I've never gotten PAX POX, Con Flu, or any of their variants.

  • POE_SE1POE_SE1 Registered User new member
    I’m defiantly liking number 2.

  • kropotkinkropotkin Forum Badge Creator London UKRegistered User regular
    Thanks all for the feed back. One more week before we decide on which design to adopt.

    IF #3 end up as the final, using the Left4Dead medkit could be a good starting point.

    Well the votes are in and a whopping 34 votes were cast and the results are *drum roll*:

    Option 1 - 3%
    Option 2 - 38%
    Option 3 - 59%

    So it's Option 3 - the first aid kit! I shall now develop a prototype design and we can work on it over the coming months until it's ready for printing.

    Thank you all for participating.
