Just a quick reminder that May 7th is the deadline for submitting your independent game to the PAX 10. Once we’ve got all the submissions we’ll have our panel of 50 industry experts digest them until we’re left with 10 stand out titles. Those ten will then be showcased at PAX 2008. For all the details hit the PAX 10 site located here.
Speaking of PAX did you know that we made a Wil Wheaton shirt? Well, we did. Wil’s keynote speech from last years PAX was so amazing we had to try and capture it using our patented shirtification process.
One of the Mods over in the PATV chatroom was kind enough to put together a PATV FAQ. A lot of the questions that pop up in the chat I don’t see just because I’m drawing at the time. This FAQ answerers tha majority of them I think. Thanks Amber for puting this together.
We recently got some feedback from a few of our partner hospitals regarding their participation in Child’s Play. Since you guys are the ones that actually make CP such an incredible success each year I thought you deserved to see it.
“Wonderful news! We are truly grateful for everything we have received so far via your incredible program. Keep up your good work! Our young patients will benefit from it.” - Montreal Children’s
“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. How exciting it was yesterday afternoon when we received the two boxes sent from Child’s Play filled with Nintendo DSs, a Wii and numerous games! Our Child Life team was so thrilled to receive such a generous donation and they are now busy putting the gifts to good use in the hospital.” - Legacy Emanuel, Portland
“I wanted to thank you and everyone at Penny Arcade & Child’s Play, we got a couple of packages from you this week and ... we were both so happy to get this for the kids to make their stay here at the hospital as pleasant as possible. They are going to install a Wii & a PS3 in both of these play rooms for the kids….it will be awesome! - Arizona Children’s
