This year I decided to try to kill two birds with one stone by going to PAX East and staying with my sister so that I could also visit my nieces. Of course the year I try to do this is when Boston has been slammed with a gajillion consecutive blizzards, and also I have to rent a car. Hopefully by the time you read this I’m attending PAX without a hitch.
I can’t wait to see the snow!
I got back from PAX on Tuesday and didn’t much feel like doing a comic while I was settling back in. Also I had a nice leisurely day on Wednesday just getting back on my non-PAX feet which meant buying a ton of groceries and playing a lot with Uni and Ebi.
Freelance work is still looking good right now so I’m going to stick to the three days a week schedule because I’m pretty much keeping busy day and night right now. I should have some new stuff to post soon!
Technically I’m still at PAX right now, but whatever. Can’t wait to see Uni and Ebi when I get back!
According to the forecast it’s going to rain today and tomorrow. I’m writing this on Wednesday so I’m looking forward to it. Also I’m well aware that I basically did this same comic last year but dammit I’m looking forward to rain!
Since I’ve been having a very busy month of freelance I felt confident enough in my finances that I can go to PAX! Also, PAX is an invaluable event to go to since I’m trying to get more work cutting trailers for indie games. Also, now that I’ve done some more work I should have better opportunities to network and meet other people.
Speaking of which, here’s another trailer that I recently completed. This game is called Deep Under the Sky where you play a space jellyfish flying around Venus! It’s from Colin Northway who is the creator of the game Incredipede. I got in contact with Colin because Incredipede was one of the games featured on the Humble Weekly Bundle celebrating open source games that I cut a trailer for.
This one was fun to cut because it was all about the movement and flow of the game which can be very hypnotic provided you don’t try to bash your way through the puzzles. It’s coming to iOS and Android on Wednesday August 20th and PC/Mac on Friday August 22nd!
PAX East aka the “Eat horribly for a weekend” PAX. It probably won’t be ramen for the ENTIRE weekend, maybe just half or 75% of it.
I’m writing this news post the week before but one time I drove down to San Diego early in the morning and thought that there’d be almost no traffic. What I forgot to anticipate is that eventually I’d hit the San Diego rush hour by the time I got in the area. So I’m probably going to give myself at least three hours buffer to get to San Diego for this flight, and of course at least an hour from when I arrive to when the flight is. So basically I probably didn’t sleep.
I got the plane tickets way back in October so naturally they take off from San Diego. Hopefully the parking arrangements I’m hoping to get go through, though long term parking isn’t the end of the world, just more expensive.
It’s the Thursday before PAX as I write this and I’ve only been away from our cats for about six hours and I miss them like crazy. We’ve been watching them on the cat housing place’s webcam but that only makes me miss them more. Can’t wait to see them again!
