Martin Rae, president, Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, will be bringing to PAX East a speaker from the 2013 D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Summit stage. Randy Pitchford, president and co-founder, Gearbox Software, and previously a professional magician, will follow with his session titled: “Video Games are Magic.” Randy will explore how the lessons of magical performance apply to our industry. Along the way, he’ll demonstrate and expose specific techniques, methods and ideas from magic that illustrate how the art of illusion has a lot in common with the art of interactive entertainment and leave his audience with tools that are useful and applicable from the executive level to the design level of our craft. Following will be a Q&A with Randy.
