I just made arrangements to get two tickets from a friend for PAX Prime. My wife, who helps me run the business part of my company
is going with me. I'm hoping to get the time (via the "drinks are on me" and "lunch is on me if you wouldn't mind me showing you my game" strategies) of some game journalists to give them a glimpse at my guy and hopefully generate some buzz.
I wanted to see if anyone else on here has done this before. I'm planning on being a walking booth for my game and just let people play it and give feedback. Hopefully some of those guys can help spread the word. During our Kickstarter last year we managed to get writeups on a few game blogs, so I'm planning on following up with them beforehand to see if any of them will be there so they can see how it's progressed and buy them drinks for all of their help during our campaign.
Any thoughts on how best to approach the weekend with the aforementioned goals in mind? I definitely need to start trying to make plans to get the time of people while I'm out there. I understand PAX prime isn't as industry focused as other conferences, but I still felt like there'd be a contingent of game writers there and I'd be able to get some of their time, if only for five minutes.
Thanks for any feedback. If you're going and you want to meet up, please let me know. It would be great to some guys from this community. Take care!
