Get ready, video game fans! Folks from around the world are about to converge in Boston for the gaming event of the year – PAX East. Taking place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC), located in the heart of the city, PAX East promises four days of game demos, panels, activations, and experiences. Of course, your old pals at Skybound will be there with FOUR fantastic new games: WrestleQuest, Glitch Busters: Stuck on You, Vice NDRCVR, and Homestead Arcana. Visit the Skybound booth (#12055) on the show floor for playable demos of all four games, along with giveaways and lots of fun activations and surprises! Here’s a breakdown of each game and a look at what we have in store for everyone…
Glitch Busters: Stuck on You is a fun and frantic, 1-4 player co-op 3rd person shooter from Toylogic, in which only your titular squad can take on the net’s kookiest bugs in an online world gone haywire.
With Homestead Arcana, developed by Serenity Forge, you become a farming witch and pioneer the range that has been mysteriously corrupted with Miasma. Discover the secret behind its appearance, grow plants to power up your spells, and use nature’s magic to heal the land.
Vice NDRCVR, from Ancient Machine Studios, lets you go undercover in a 1980s-style narco thriller, where the only way to stop a deadly cartel is from within. Expose the cartel and hack the drug war!
In WrestleQuest, pro wrestling and RPG fantasy collide in the ultimate pixel-powered adventure from Mega Cat Studios. “Macho Man” Randy Savage and tons of other icons offer guidance as you powerbomb your way to glory beyond the ring.
We’ll be doing exclusive PAX pin giveaways for everyone who plays our demos. And everyone who plays them can enter to win, twice a day, a Turtle Beach prize pack consisting of a headset, keyboard, and mouse.
Plus, we’re going to have a real life-size wrestling ring in our booth. Oh yes! We’re going to have wrestling matches, special wrestling talent meet & greets, and a photo booth where people can come and take a picture inside the wrestling ring.
And for even more wrestling mayhem, we’ll be hosting a WrestleQuest panel: Wrestle-fying an RPG: A Wrestler’s Take on Game Design. Here’s the official deets…
Fri, Mar 24, 2023
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Join Mega Cat Studios team members James Deighan and Zack Manko alongside a to-be-determined legendary wrestler and gaming historian Patrick Hickey as they walk through the layer-by-layer breakdown of how they brought traditional JRPG mechanics to the wrestling ring. Peak behind the scenes with case studies and feedback lessons learned from fans, professional wrestlers, and RPG superfans.
In addition to all this goodness, we’ll be selling PAX East exclusive collectible prints of Invincible and The Walking Dead comic book covers – these are super premium 18”x24” poster-sized prints that won’t be sold anywhere else.
Finally – we’re bringing Skybound’s upcoming movie Renfield (arriving in theaters on April 14th) to our PAX East booth as well! We’ll have a separate photo booth activation where we’ll digitally add you to the movie poster in the role of Renfield, the henchman (played by Nicholas Hoult in the movie) of Count Dracula himself (played by Nicolas Cage).
We’re planning some other special surprises and giveaways at PAX East that we’ll announce soon. Bookmark Skybound.com and follow us on ADD SOCIALS to keep up to speed!
Here’s some more details on the collectible art prints we’ll have at PAX East…
Each day we’ll be dropping two exclusive, numbered, limited editions of each 11×17” special silver foil collectible art print. Each print is based on an iconic cover image from Skybound’s The Walking Dead Deluxe and Invincible comics. It’s our way of celebrating the 20th anniversary of both groundbreaking series! Only 100 copies of each design will be made available during our booth hours (10 AM-6 PM daily throughout PAX East), with each print on sale for just $50 at the Skybound booth.
