Going to PAX East this year? Come by the Diversity Lounge in Room 151AB between 10am and 6pm Friday – Sunday, say hi, learn more about what we do and also buy raffle tickets for prizes! All funds raised from the raffle go towards supporting our work.
We’ll have the Quantum Break Prima Guide and Xbox 1 Dusk Controller, Game Dev Barbie, as well as a copy of The Offworld Collection as raffle prizes.
We’ll also have I Need Diverse Games buttons, which we’re asking $1 donation for. There’ll be a jar on our table and a Square reader for anyone feeling generous but low on cash.
