UDON Headed to PAX East

Today is the first day of PAX East, the show proving the east coast can host video game conventions and get lots of attendance. The show is sold out through all days and there's a good chance that some of attendees will want to swing by UDON's booth to check a few things out.

On the creator front, Edwin Huang and Joe Ng will be on hand, signing and sketching for fans all weekend. Also on hand will be Double Fine Productions founder Tim Schafter, signing at 11 AM on Saturday. There will also be the "World of Capcom" panel, moderated by Francis Mao. Up to 1,000 fans will walk away with a free gift. Oh, and there will be some books debuting at the show. The Art of Brutal Legend HC, Atelier: Artworks of Arland, Growlanser Art Works, Midori Foo's Book of Pictures, Takehito Hara: Art Works Volume 1 and Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Art Works.

Full press release below.
