PAX East 2018 – Booth 14005

Pit People has officially launched but the fun doesn’t stop there! We’re already working on our next update for the game and we’re also planning our Boston trip in April. This year the expo runs for four days so you’ll be able to visit us for an extra day!

Come to visit us at Booth 14005 where we’ll have arcade cabinets for Pit People (single player and 2-player Co-Op), Castle Crashers Remastered, BattleBlock Theater, and Alien Hominid HD. We’re also bringing back our Gift Shop with tons of official merch, including new Pit People figurines, a PAX East 2018 exclusive shirt, new patches in our Chonku Chonku machines, and more! We’ll post a full list of merch next week so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

There are also several events that will be happening that week at PAX East. Here’s what we’ve got confirmed so far:

-Friday, April 6th, from 1:30PM-3:30PM EST: Pit People First Blood Challenge (Hosted at our booth)
-Saturday, April 7th, from 1:30PM-3:30PM EST: Pit People First Blood Challenge (Hosted at our booth)
-Saturday, April 7th, from 6:00PM-8:00PM EST: BattleBlock Theater Tournament (Hosted by PAX)

The First Blood Challenge will focus on 1v1 battles in the Pit. Any PAX East attendee is welcome to join! We’ll post rules and prizes for the Challenge in its own post next week. Until then, we hope to see you in the Pit!
