    If you recall, last month's Kickstarter update for Dead State spoke of an incoming "big announcement". Today's update reveals what the team at DoubleBear was so excited about:

    We can finally share a big announcement with everyone – we will be showing Dead State in the Indie Megabooth at PAX Prime this year! If you’re going to be at PAX on any of the four days this year, swing by the Indie Megabooth and come play a demo of Dead State.

    We’ve been working hard all summer to add functionality to Dead State’s build and to get our demo ready for PAX. You’ll be able to see both the progress we’ve made and get a look at the WIP demo which showcases the first two days of Dead State. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to. Swing by the booth and meet Annie, Christina, Oscar, or me, and we’ll give you a guided tour of the demo. Being a part of the Indie Megabooth has been a huge goal for us and we’re in good company – there are dozens of indie developers to come see in the booth this year (we will be just as excited to see their work as some of you will be to see Dead State.)

    For those who can’t make it to PAX, fear not, as we will make sure that between press and our YouTube channel that you get a good look at the state of Dead State. Indie Megabooth and PAX coverage should start appearing around the end of August. Expect a lot more information about Dead State from now on. We’re really excited to be able to finally show off our progress on Dead State to the gaming community, so please look for us at PAX and keep watching our forums and Kickstarter for the latest info on Dead State!

    For more information on the Indie Megabooth, here’s a link to the site:

    Uh, okay. More information is good!

    I am disappointed. :(

    You would think that KS backers would get to try the demo instead this just seems to now be a trend with many KS projects: get the money from backers then proceed to show off to the gaming "press" and market your game just like any other publisher controlled model. I know there was no implicit guarantee that backers would get early access but I just thought they'd show a little more love to those of us who help fund this thing...

    Don't know why this bothers me as much as it does but it just seems like almost no news comes from them except a few hints that they have something great to show/ talk about then... BAM! "we've got this great demo to show off but only a very few get to actually see or play it. OK, thanks, goodby."

    Ah, maybe I'm just grouchy today.... :rpgcodex:

    Don't get me wrong. I'm glad that these games are getting press coverage (I want them to spread the gospel and make lot's of capitalist dollars to make more good/ great cRPGs) but just felt here that they have basically ignored backers and now show up with a whole demo that backers can't try.

    OK, but maybe a little more information would be nice. Silence in this instance is definitely not golden...

    I'm too indie for that.

    I'm no longer gainfully employed, so I can urinate in public and and do other exciting things.

    You quit to take up the gaming thing full time?

    I'm glad they're actually trying to market themselves. If the game is any good, I think the zombie craze could push them into self funding their next game. That is of course, if people actually know about the game.
