It’s getting close to that time! First, just to get things out of the way, we will not be launching tickets in April for PAX West. So you can take your time, plan out your summer, and relax for a little bit.

We are, however, opening PAX West Panel Submissions and PAX 10 Submissions!

So if you have a panel about video game fandom or culture that you think the world needs to hear, check out the submission site: http://west.panels.paxsite.com/main/login

And if you are an indie game developer who wants to put your game up for contention in the PAX 10 for a shot at exhibiting at PAX West 2017, information on how to enter is right here: https://store.penny-arcade.com/products/pax-10-2017-game-submission-1

Thank you to all our fans and we will have a lot more PAX information for you coming soon!

So ends the 25th PAX.  Huge thanks to all the Enforcers who made it all possible, our exhibitors for bringing all sorts of cool stuff to look at, and all our attendees for giving us the reason to throw our little parties. We hope you all had fun, and we ESPECIALLY hope you’ll come back next year.  It’d be a very lonely, boring party without you, only PARTIALLY redeemed by much shorter VR Freeplay lines.  wink

Hope to see you next year!  You know, unless you’re joining us at PAX Aus! (hint hint hint)

Our concert lineup for West 2016 is all set and boy howdy it is a doosy. How do you spell that? Dewsie? Douzy? Drowzey? Pokemon? What’s happening? Where am I?

Friday is going to start with a bang as we have the Video Game Pianist, MC Frontalot, and Bit Brigade beginning our first night of musical awesomeness.

Saturday we keep rolling with Triforce Quartet, The Oneups, and the Super Guitar Bros. making sure they keep your toes sufficiently tapping and ear holes delightfully ensconced.

Sunday night we don’t have a concert, but Acquisitions Inc. is neat and that’s happening.

Monday night we will have already ended the show. Sorry.

We can’t wait to see everyone in a few short weeks! Hope you are excited. PAX IS COMING.

This is the 25th PAX, and we feel like it’s a big deal. So in keeping with that “big deal” mindset we made sure to get an amazing game dev to open the show for us—Amy Hennig!

You might recognize Amy from some of your favorite games of all time: Jak and Daxter, the Uncharted series, and Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver just to name a few. And if that wasn’t enough, Amy is now working on some amazing new Star Wars properties.

We know that whatever she wants to talk about will be worth hearing and we hope you are as excited as we are to hear her impart some very legitimate and interesting knowledge.

The 2016 PAX 10 has finally been unveiled! We’re very excited by the offering this year, which covers a wide variety of genres and platforms. It’s our hope that no matter what kind of gamer you are, you’ll find something special in these list.  Check out the full rundown on our PAX 10 page!
