PAX East 2019 Wrap Up

Hey everyone!

PAX East has wrapped up! We had a lot to show off - AUDICA was featured at the Made in MA party on the first night, and Dance Central was featured throughout the weekend at the Oculus booth! As usual, we had a bunch of things going on and wanted to take a moment to recap and reflect on it all.

Let’s dive in! 

Made in MA Party

Made in MA was first up on Thursday evening. This annual PAX event hosted by Mass DiGI showcases what is happening across the Massachusetts gaming community. AUDICA was featured at the Main Showcase where gamers got to try it out first hand. A big thanks to Mass DiGI for having us!

Dance Central @ PAX East

On Friday and Saturday, Dance Central was featured at the Oculus Rift S Showcase. The stage was set up with 4 pods, one for each of our dancers. Alicia Caillier, Product Manager for Dance Central, psyched the crowd up and presented synchronous online multiplayer! The audience at PAX was the first to see the Wardrobe, cellphone navigation, The Lounge, and online gameplay.

A few lucky audience members with killer dance moves were invited up on stage at the end of each show for an epic dance-off. They went home with an exclusive Dance Central poster signed by the entire dev team!

AbleGamers Charity Stream

On Saturday, March 30th, we hosted a charity stream for AbleGamers! AbleGamers is a charity that gives people with disabilities custom gaming setups including modified controllers and assistive technologies. We were able to smash our donation goal before the end of the night, having raised a total of $3,300 for the cause. AbleGamers gave away some sweet prizes, including this cool Fender Telecaster from the Rock Band Art Series! Thank you to our friends at AbleGamers, Devolver Digital, and Jackbox Games for swinging on by, and all of YOU for helping make this happen! If you missed it, you can watch the full stream over on Twitch:

That’s A Wrap!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to play AUDICA and Dance Central, watched our shows at the Oculus stage, tuned into our charity stream, and just chatted with us throughout the weekend! We were thrilled to be at PAX East and are already looking forward to next year!
