We know you're dying to enter our Torchlight Cosplay contest. We know you've sketched out your dream costume and still have two fingers hot-glued together from creating your Alchemist prototype armor.

There's just one problem: You don't have a badge for PAX Prime.


Announcing our second PAX Prime contest, for rare-as-dragon's-teeth 3-Day PAX Badges on Twitter!

Here is how to win one of 20 PAX Prime 2012 badges:

  • Login to twitter and tweet how excited you are to play Torchlight II at PAX!
  • Use the hashtag #TL2PAX so we can track your entry. Your twitter account must also be following @RunicGames so we can contact you if you are chosen.
  • You can enter as often as you like - we encourage you to be creative! We're going to use a decidedly non-scientific awesome-meter process for selection.
  • Deadline is Friday, July 13th at 5pm (PDT)! Winners announced on Tuesday, July 17th.

Additional rules:

You can enter multiple times, but we're limiting winners to one badge per person regardless of entries. That means if your name is drawn more than once, we still award you one badge, and we'll draw again. Entering more often boosts your chances, but we want to ensure that 20 different people get the chance to go to PAX.


This is good for one of the sold-out 3-day PAX badges, and not for airfare or hotel. You must be able to be in Seattle to both collect and use the badge. Please keep entries for those who can actually make it to PAX. Winners will be announced on July 17th and will be contacted individually to collect their badges in person the week before PAX begins.

Be sure to catch our PAX panel!

"Business Models of PC Games: Then, Now, and Looking to the Future."

How do the lessons of the past affect our strategy for the future? Are audiences growing tired of the subscription model? What will the role of DRM be as more games are sold primarily online? The development and future of PC Gaming is examined by the creators of Diablo, Guild Wars, and Torchlight. Confirmed speakers include Max Schaefer [CEO, Runic Games], Patrick Wyatt [Founder, ArenaNet], and Stephen Goldstein [Interactive Entertainment and Video Games Practice Group Chair, Stubbs, Alderton, and Markiles] Saturday, September 1st, 4:30pm in the Serpent Theatre.

See you there!
