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.
10 years ago I ventured across a large ocean and a continent to attend my first ever PAX. It was called PAX 2008 back then as there was no other PAX. Now there are 5 of them and while a lot a changed some things remain the same and this includes the Forum Badge. Created as a means to recognise other forum members amongst the vast army of people who attend PAX, the Forum Badge has become quite the tradition for those who still post here. Over the last 10 years the importance of forums has dwindled thanks to the rise of social media sites and other community management portals like Discord, but that hasn't stopped us from continuing to fly the flag of the forums. Where else would the myth of the bobcat come about? How did the Cookie Brigade start and what about the Challenge Coin? Oh and let's not forget the Pre-PAX Board Game Night and the Tri Wizard bar crawl. All of these things come from the forums and this year we are going to celebrate that fact!
So here are the three choices for the theme for the 10 year anniversary of the PAX Forum Badge:
1) Arcade cabinet from early 1980's
2) A loot box
3) Self congratulatory 10 years of Forum Badge that celebrates its existence after all of these years.
Let me know which one grabs you the most by responding to this post with 1,2 or 3 and we shall put it to the vote on THURSDAY 5TH JULY At which point the top two will be selected and a prototype of each design developed. There will then be another round of voting and we shall select the final design. So what are you waiting for? Get voting!
