PAX Prime is coming up and the crew behind the gaming event have created a new 2-day event just before the start of PAX Prime called PAX Dev. The PAX Dev event will be for indie game developers only that will features workshops focused on design mechanics with some great speakers like our friends from Trendy Entertainment.
The event will be completely closed to media which means we will have to wait till our developer friends heading to the event let us know how it went and what they did. Other speakers aside from Trendy Entertainment and cross-platform gaming include PopCap Games who will talk about operating social games and Rovio and Google about bringing Angry Birds to Chrome. The complete schedule was just released the other day for anyone interested in checking it out. Pretty much the entire event looks like it will be extremely good for developers.
Tickets are available for anyone interested in showing up and will set you back $329. After the 2-day PAX Dev event the main show, PAX Prime will begin. For more details check out the official PAX Dev event site. For those curious, PAX Prime is the west coast PAX Event which is held in Seattle, Washington from Aug. 26th-28th, 2011. The PAX Dev event will be held from Aug. 24th-25th, 2011.
