GaymerX’s third gaming convention, GX3, has a venue and a date set for 2015.
GaymerX is holding GX3: Everyone Games December 11-13, 2015 in San Jose, California, according to an update to the convention’s Kickstarter page. Early bird tickets are on sale.
GX3 is the new title of GaymerX’s convention. GaymerX was founded in 2013 as an inclusive convention, dedicated to making a safe space for LGBT gamers. With two conventions under its belt, GaymerX wasn’t sure a third was going to happen due to financial problems. Several developers pledged sponsorships, and GaymerX began a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for GX3. The event was successfully funded. GX3 will take place in the San Jose Marriott.
Jennifer Hale, the voice for Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect series, will be attending GX3 as a Boss of Honor. There will be panels, game tournaments, tabletop games, live music, cosplay, as well as a chance to play games by sponsored attendees. Other Bosses of Honor are Zach Weiner of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, Ellen McLain of Portal‘s GLaDOS, John Patrick Lowrie of Team Fortress 2‘s Sniper, and Rob Jagnow of Cogs and Extrasolar.
Earlybird tickets vary in price depending on what kind of access you’re looking for, but the basic GX3 ticket price for the weekend is about $70. Kickstarter backers should have received an email with a ticket code.
