Will We See You At PAX Aus?

Posted by CheckPoint (Creator)

Hi there! We hope you're doing really well and are having a fruitful, healthy year. 

If you're in Australia or New Zealand it'd be pretty hard to miss the news that in just a few days time, Melbourne International Games Week starts. We can't wait! We have all sorts going on, and if you're going to be there, please do come and say hello.


PAX Australia 2017

It's going to be a busy con! Here's what we've got lined up:



The CheckPoint Series Exclusive World Premiere

Our production team have been hard at work behind the scenes, creating the first cut of our premiere episode. We're so thrilled and proud to be able to screen this exclusive premiere for you at PAX Australia! 

Please join us at 9pm, on Friday October 27th in the GameSpot Theatre.

We're actually showing two (!!!!!) episodes, which will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion with myself, codirector Dr Shelley, our social media manager Pritika and our production team Toby and Ben. This will include bloopers, behind the scenes footage, and an opportunity for you to be part of the series!


Two Fundraiser Panels

Kicking off on Friday, 11:30am in the Galah Theatre with FIFA 18 Charity Tournament: YouTube Stars vs A-League Pros

And then on Sunday, at 11am in the Wombat Theatre we are proud and privileged to be working with Child's Play for the Child's Play Charity Auction. Child’s Play are staying local, making sure all Australian Dollars are kept down under. All proceeds are going directly to CheckPoint.


The CheckPoint Raffle

Due to the generosity of a number of people and organisations, we'll have a weekend-long raffle going. You can buy tickets from our stall in the Diversity Lounge. Up for grabs (so far!) are:

  • 2x AK Racing Pro Gaming Chairs
  • 2x FallOut 4 Pip-Boy Special Edition
  • 1x Steam Wireless Controller
  • 1x Steam Link
  • Heaps of CheckPoint Merchandise
  • More!!



All of our awesome physical rewards from the Kickstarter have been delivered and are ready for distribution! This includes the Lux Black Dog pin, the Flagbearer pin, and of course the 20" Art Print by Tobias Allen. ALL will be available to purchase from our booth in the Diversity Lounge.

If you are a backer, and you're coming to PAX Aus, we would really appreciate it if you could stop by and pick up your rewards! It will help us heaps by reducing postage costs, and also means you'll get it much sooner :)


So stop by, say hello, show your support, and keep up the amazing work - because together, we are tackling mental health issues using the power of video games.
