Reformat the PAX!
Monday, 04 August 2008 23:30
West Coast Premier of Reformat the Planet at Penny Arcade Expo


Reformat the Planet will be showing at the 2008 Penny Arcade Expo(PAX) in Seattle, Washington. This will be our west-coast premier, and perhaps the largest venue RTP has had the privilege to play at. With attendance over the years steadily rising to the thirty seven thousand at last years event, PAX has become the ultimate destination for gamers the world over. RTP will be introduced to a new audience that's bigger then ever, and we're all very grateful that the guys at PA liked our movie enough to want to show it to their friends.

We'll be joined in Seattle by our pals Anamanaguchi, who are performing as part of PAX's legendary live concert event. Having previously given new life to video game cover bands and the nerd-core rap movement, PAX will be opening their door for the first time to chip music. Little do they realize the breaching charges placed on the door by the guch', set to blow that fucker to splinters right before they storm in and clear the room.

In theory, you should be able to find us for the duration of the event populating a merch booth packed with all sort of excellent 8bitpeoples swag. What's much more likely to happen is that we'll find an excuse to stick Anamanaguchi in the booth and sneak off to play Mega Man 9 and Bionic Commando. So if you come by to make a purchase in good will and find the station manned by scruffy-looking musician types with colorful t-shirts and tight pants, don't panic. They are in control.

To celebrate our next big screening(and make up for last weeks missing video) we've added three clips of Reformat the Planet to the site to give everyone a better idea of whats in store for them. PAIN!

No, not really. Unless you find pulse pounding live performances and slick 8-bit ascetics painful, then be sure to take your medication before clicking the link.

As of this moment, the time slot for the PAX screening is still TBA. In the meantime, you should be concerned with putting your body through an intense physical and mental training routine in preparation for the three most jam-packed days of awesomeness in human history.
