The first international guest of the first international PAX has been announced: Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert will kick off festivities at PAX Australia on Friday morning with a special address he likes to call “Storytime”.
After a little time off, Gilbert is now
happily grumpily working alongside former LucasArts colleague Tim Schafer at Double Fine Productions, where he recently finished work on (creating and designing) The Cave.
PAX Australia will be held from 19-21 July 2013, set to be the largest gaming festival to be held in the land Down Under. 3-day and Saturday passes have already sold out – but tickets to Friday’s events (including Gilbert’s keynote!) are still available if you act fast.
An assortment of other guests have been announced for PAX Australia, including the team from Red vs. Blue creators RoosterTeeth, and musical acts MC Frontalot and The Protomen.
