Harmonix at PAX East 2018!

Tis the season of PAX and we’re back on our own turf! Harmonix and Hasbro are heading to PAX East this year and we’re bringing our music-mixing card game, DropMix!

We’re gearing up for a thrilling, 4-day PAX East free-for-all, and have a lot going on. So much so that Riley, Nick, and Troy from Finance had to split up writing this post.

DropMix Booth

Hey all, it’s Riley, your local DropMix Broadcaster and unofficial HMX hand model. We’re setting up camp at the Boston Convention Center this week! Stop by our booth on the show floor where we’ll be mixing it up all 4 days starting Thursday, April 5th through Sunday April 8th. We’ll be keeping you up to date throughout the weekend with exciting PAX news, so be sure to follow us @DropMixGame on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Don’t miss a beat, come find us at booth #19097!

Compete for Clash champ status or collaborate with friends to liven up the Party. Then top it off with Freestyle and mix your favorite hit songs. Play DropMix at our booth and you can:

  • Make mixes with our upcoming Playlist Pack - Chiller!
  • Test out updates to Clash Mode and Party Mode! (Click here for more details!)
  • Walk away with 2 PAX East exclusive DropMix music cards! What are they? An exclusive remix of “G.I. Joe Main Title Theme” and “Flutter Fly” from the soundtrack of Supergiant Games’ latest game, Pyre.
  • Win big in our special DropMix PAX East giveaway! Tweet a photo of your promo cards using #DropMixPAX, #LightSync, and #Sweepstakes and we’ll pick a winner at random every day of PAX to go home with a DropMix prize package. What does that include? A signed DropMix Board, Starter Set, Logitech G560 LIGHTSYNC Speakers, an extra set of promo cards, and a signed Bastion and Pyre vinyl from our friends at Supergiant Games! Official rules can be found at

Panel Time!

Hey, it's Troy, the guy behind the camera of every livestream. Have you often found yourself staring into your reflection in the shiny black readers of your DropMix board and think, "How did that ragtag bunch of music game makers at Harmonix partner with global superpower Hasbro to create this unbridled majesty?" You're in luck.

At our panel “Every Day I’m Shuffling: The Making of DropMix”, the team from Harmonix and Hasbro will take you behind the scenes showing off early prototypes and sharing some challenges and surprises encountered along the way. You won't want to miss this exclusive peek behind the curtain!

You can catch the panel Thursday, April 5th at 4PM in the Bumblebee Theater. More information here:

PAX Charity Livestream

Oh, hi, it’s Nick (HMXMudry)! PAX East is great because all our friends from the industry and Harmonix community are here in our back yard. To celebrate we’re hosting a special charity stream on Saturday night with our good friends at AbleGamers and other special guests. We’ll be hanging out talking about the convention, playing some games, and probably eating lots of pizza.

On top of raising money, AbleGamers will be giving away some awesome prizes on stream. Catch all the action on Saturday, April 7th, starting at 7PM Eastern all over the interwebs (Twitch, Mixer, and Facebook Live). If you’d like to get a head start on donating, you can do so here:

It's time to party!

We’re not limiting ourselves to the PAX show floor. We’ll be bringing DropMix to the Made In MA Party on Thursday, April 5th. Party with us at District Hall (a short walk from the convention center) from 6-11PM to celebrate a variety of incredible games from local developers, free food, and fun people. Tickets are still available here:

We’re not even done yet.

We have even more surprises coming your way so don’t miss out! Keep your eyes (and ears!) posted to @DropMixGame on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram over the coming weeks and during the show for more news and information!

See you all at PAX!

-Riley, Nick, Troy from Finance, and the rest of the Harmonix PAX squad!
