I hope you didn’t have any plans for January, because Penny Arcade announced that they will be adding another annual PAX event, in San Antonio. Gamers will have the opportunity to play some of the industry’s most exciting games from January 23rd – 25th, starting next year, at the Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center.
Why San Antonio, and not Austin, where game development studios seem to be sprouting up on a monthly basis? The world may never know. This marks the fourth annual PAX event; the other three occur in Seattle, WA, Boston, MA, and Melbourne Australia, which held its inaugural meeting just last year.
News broke during the early morning hours (well, early for PAX goers, anyway), on Saturday morning, PAX co-founders Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik took the stage for their “Make-A-Strip” panel, where a to-capacity crowd watched as the comic creators illustrated a comic. Additionally, Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade added in a press release,”Since its launch in 2004, PAX events have doubled in size almost every year, and our Seattle and Boston events represent the two largest gaming festivals in North America.”
