Oh boy… whoever decided that two of the industry’s biggest trade shows should be within a week of each other needs a serious talking-to. Regardless, Evolve PR will be at PAX East and GDC, and more importantly, our clients will be there. This is a great chance to see what’s coming up in 2013 and beyond as we present you some of the best and most interesting games from independent developers around the world. We have action, we have strategy, and we have adventure on a wide range of platforms.
