[Sponsored Content] BattleKasters Day One at PAX Prime
Ness, with the Can’t Talk home team, here with a wrap up of the first day of PAX Prime “BattleKasters” goodness. I hope everyone out there in Seattle is having a good time—and that those of us at BoringCon are hanging in there. The panel today on “Going to Work When I Seriously Would Rather Stay Home and Enjoy PAX Vicariously Via Twitter” was intense, but I made it through.
A quick recap: “BattleKasters” is a location-based mobile game in which players go around closing portals to prevent dark magic from seeping between Earth and Orkney. You can also interact with other players.
I hope you all read Amelia’s awesome interview with Brent Friedman, creator of “BattleKasters,” and Alane Adams, who wrote the “Legends of Orkney” book series on which the game is based. The first book in that series, “The Red Sun,” is available now. I love how much of this ties in with reading and literacy—and I’m super interested in picking up that book, too.
Want to watch Bell and Melissa try to get the hang of this game? Of course you do. Who wouldn’t want to watch that?
In this one, Bell thinks she’s got the right spot, but she’s not quite there.
And now, success!
At this, the final portal of the day, Bell seems to be getting the hang of it.
Bell and Melissa got some dark spells, which sounds delightful. Steal some of the other players’ wisdom cards, guys!
The game itself looks like a blast—and isn’t that artwork gorgeous? Shout out to Jonathan Stroh for an amazing job on that; the game looks beautiful.
But that’s it for “BattleKasters” for today.
See you back here tomorrow.
