Fall is officially here! There’s a crisp chill in the air as waves of pumpkin spice waft over the breeze. Before we leave the warm Summer sun, we want to thank everyone who made PAX West 2019 one of IMB’s BEST PAX EVENTS YET! In this newsletter, we walk you through all the great moments in our highlight reel, a few of the awards, and – yes – we’ll tell you about when to expect open submissions for PAX East 2020 and GDC. (Hint: Start following us on TwitterInstagram, and Discord.)
