In its first year PAX Australia got Ron Gilbert. Year two it was Pete Hines.
This year? The opening 'storytime' keynote at PAX Australia will be delivered by Warren Spector.
The same Warren Spector responsible for working on games like Deus Ex, System Shock, Thief: Deadly Shadows, Wing Commander, and Disney Epic Mickey.
That's a pretty good coup.
The 'storytime' keynote typically opens PAX, and tends to be a memorable look through the history of video gaming's greatest creators. In that context, you can expect Warren Spector's talk to be a humdinger. He's a great speaker, with a history of incredible genre-definig video games under his belt.
His keynote will take place at October 30.
Single day passes for PAX Australia are still available. You can find out more here.
