Crowds of people lining the booth and aisles subject to overflow, all eyes were glued to the big screen for The Gunstringer and Ms Splosion Man were in the spotlight at Twisted Pixel’s booth at Pax East. Fresh off the heels of GDC in San Francisco, Twisted Pixel was going strong and bringing all sorts of fun to the east coast!
I stopped by for a while and got the chance to play Ms Splosion Man, watch their timed tourney (in which they gave away an exclusive Ms. Splosion Man console) and ask Twisted Pixel’s Jay Stuckwisch a few questions about the upcoming titles.
You guys were just at GDC with these games?
Jay: Yeah, we were! Mike and Josh went out. Mainly they were just showing off Ms Splosion Man but they did have Gun there as well. We showed Gun off at the showcase event the weekend before.
Well there is a HUGE reception here at your booth and packed every time I come by. Are you finding that the people here at PAX have been exceptionally receptive or is just everyone loving what you guys are doing?
Jay: It seems like everyone has been really super excited! The showcase event really helped a lot with Gun. I think a lot of people maybe kind of didn’t ‘get it’ you know. And then once people actually saw the game play and how people were responding to it, it really, the fans have just been awesome. And we are really proud of that. For both games!
Okay, I have to ask. So, Ms Splosion Man – is she the next leading female heroine?
Jay: You know what? I would LOVE to think so because she’s pretty awesome to me.
