PAX East this year was a blast, it was the first time we let members of the public go hands on with Chivalry and we had a lot of awesome feedback from people who had never heard about the game and also people who had played the mod a lot.
We had a head-to-head setup where players would take each other on in the area and some funny moments were captured including this gem where a fan stopped by to defeat our knight 2-1 and in typical gaming sportsmanship celebrated his victory with ample teabaggery.
All in all PAX East was a great experience for our team, was a lot of fun to interact with the fans and finally see players go hands on with the game we've been working really hard on. We were most surprised by how well people were able to just drop into the game and play, the combat mechanics have a lot of depth and strategy to them but at the same time players were able to sit down at a completely new experience and dish out some medieval violence which was great to see.
We'll be doing a similar event at PAX PRIME this year in August so be sure to swing by if you will be in the Seattle area!
