Jerry “Tycho” Holkins wrote on Penny Arcade,

“It may not be apparent outside of my own mind, but the ‘PEIS’ has a specific mission to promote games on mobile. PAX 10 is more broad. But mobile is an especially scary place to make games right now, and I think there’s good to be done thereby. Unlike a lot of games at a show like this, a lot of times you can just grab your phone out of your pocket and buy something you like right there. As magic tricks go, that’s a pretty good one.”

The PAX East 2014 will take place April 11-14 in Boston. We’ll bring you more news as the event draws closer.
