Astrogun taking VAST to the Investment Summit at PAX East March 28th!
Astrogun’s Studio Head / Projects Lead Xander Davis and wife Elizabeth Davis (the voice of Yori and Michu in VAST) will be bringing VAST to the GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit at PAX East 2019 on March 28th!
Below is the VAST trailer following the soft-launch this year across macOS and iOS to join tvOS. VAST is also now on Steam (Coming Soon, Wishlist!). Further, VAST is now optimized for iPhone X Ultra-Wide Touch Displays!
The GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit, the UK’s premier games investment event, makes it way to the US as part of PAX East. Its sole aim is to get games funded! Now in its ninth year, the Investment Summit is taking place in Boston as part of the huge PAX East games expo on Thursday 28th March 2019.
Astrogun is entirely self-funded but is exploring opportunities for expanding its funding for VAST and finding partners that can boost marketing. Astrogun will have access to the Investment Summit talks, an opportunity to meet and pitch VAST to investors, networking lunch, PLUS full access to PAX East on Thursday and Friday.
At the event, Astrogun looks forward to discovering more about games investment and access to finance in the morning talks, and then meeting and pitching to investors, publishers, and platform-holders in the afternoon session of the event. At last year’s UK Investment Summit, there were more than 350 formal meetings between investors and games developers.
Investors, publishers, sponsors and speakers confirmed include Amazon, Digital Extremes, Double Fine, Epic Games, Gearbox Publishing, Graffiti Games, Humble Bundle, Jagex, Kickstarter, Kongregate, Kowloon Nights, Krafton (formerly Bluehole), Limited Run, Merge Games, Nintendo, PlayStack, PlayStation, Skybound Games, Snail Games, Sold Out, Team17, Velan Ventures, Versus Evil, Xsolla, Yacht Club and ID@Xbox, with more to be announced.
The event is sponsored by Limited Run and Xsolla.
