The RaiderZ Team was in Seattle, Washington this past weekend, 8/31 to 9/2, showing off the game to tens of thousands of gaming fans at PAX Prime 2012! If you couldn't make it this year, don't worry. We'll highlight some memorable moments from the show.
First of all, we saw many amazing and creative costumes. Strangely, zombies were out in full force including one trying out the PAX demo below. Even zombies couldn't resist the allure of epic RaiderZ loot! We were careful not to get too close, however…

Gamers of all ages from 5 to 60+ got a chance to try out our game. The line of hungry gamers started the first day and didn't disappear until the very last moments of PAX. We even had gamers stay after closing to finish their quest for epic loot; we rewarded them extra swag for their efforts, of course.

We had nine computers all running the PAX demo and encouraged players party up to slay Borgo, Goblin Golem, and the newest epic Boss Monster Chimera. The monsters posed a challenge even for a group of five, but everyone received a reward for their efforts.

What kind of swag did we give away? We gave away tote bags to everyone so they can carry all their PAX swag home and they were very popular! Also, we gave away a funny t-shirt which was in high demand. See the awesome design below.
Players learned the hard way: "Hunt Together or Die Alone"
We also had glass steins and the ever-elusive dragon beanie, which a lucky few walked away with. Even the Perfect World staff and RaiderZ Team couldn't take a beanie home!

Media was also buzzing around the RaiderZ booth trying to grab pictures and recording players in action. We even did an impromptu interview with Lindsay from Curse because she was blown away by how action-packed our MMORPG looked!
Lots of great media buzz for RaiderZ
Overall, RaiderZ received such great exposure and reviews from gaming fans, press, and media. We'll be updating our site with the latest awards, including our "Best MMORPG of PAX" award from Twinfinite.net, and other hands-on impressions in an upcoming post.
Finally, if you visited our booth and played in our CBT, we want to personally thank you for dropping by! It was great to meet each of you in person. We cannot wait to show you what we have in store for the next phase of Open Beta Test. Stay tuned to our home page for the latest details.
