World Zombination - PAX East 2015

 World Zombination, a ridiculously addicting game, which I can't seem to pull myself away from. If there is a reason why it's taking so much time for me to post up another interview from PAX East 2015, this game is the reason.

  While at PAX, I spoke with Seth Sivak the CEO of Proletariat, the developers of World Zombination. We had a great chat about the game, check it out below! And while you're watching the video, download the game to see for yourself how much fun it is!

Tumblestone - PAX East 2015

  While at PAX East I was able to try the game Tumblestone a match three puzzle game. It's not like any normal match three game, it's actually a more intelligent, and intuitive match three game. And it's a lot of fun! It gets to be even more fun when you play the multi-player mode with your friends. After playing the game, I had a chance to speak with the Game Designer and Software Engineer of Tumblestone, Ty Taylor. Check out the video below, and keep an eye out for the release of Tumblestone later this year!

PAX East 2015 Day 1

  PAX East day one went rather well. I was able to check out a few of the exhibits in the expo hall, and figured out a basic game plan for Saturday (Technically today, as I'm posting this after midnight). This year we brought along more friends and family than previous years, and being able to watch someone experience it for the first time, is quite an experience in of itself. My niece ended up coming this year, and I was able to show her the X-Men Arcade cabinet, in the classic arcade area. She just stood there playing for almost an hour, deep into the game, and making comments wondering why so many sentinels, creature, and other mutants had it out for Wolverine. You see, she didn't grow up with arcades like many of us did, she's too young to remember anything like that. My niece grew up playing on her iPad, or Nintendo DS, but never experienced what it was like to hangout with a friend to play a two player game because online games didn't exist the way they do today. I probably had more fun watching her play X-Men than she did playing it but it was really a cool experience I know I'll always remember, and I hope that she does too as she grows up.

  When I originally stated writing this post I was planning on talking about some of the exhibits I saw, but honest the best part of the day was just sitting there and playing games with my friends and family, and honestly I think that, that is what PAX is all about. It's about people getting together to enjoy something, and to spend time together. In the game of life, I believe I leveled up today.

PAX East 2015!

  Today if the day! PAX East begins today, and I'm currently on my way to experience another weekend full of fun, and games. I've been lucky enough to have been able to go to PAX East every year since it began. As each year comes and goes, I've come to realize that I look more and more forward to PAX East. I believe part of it is that I've grown to appreciate more at PAX each year, not just what the new big thing is coming out on PC or Console. I also think that with these interviews I do with the indie developers I end up feeling more connected with the people, the games, and the energy of the place. Well it's time for me to get ready and to head into Boston. I hope to see you there!
