    hey guys,

    so, in a couple of hours (provided i can spit a couple of drafts out and i still agree with my plan after i write it), we'll be announcing that we're headed to PAX Prime 2014. more specifically, we'll be talking about how we're going to show off the "gold" (or launch) version of Planetary Annihilation at the event.

    you heard it right (and here first): launch is so close, we'll have the build by August 29. and as i teased earlier in another thread, you're going to get to play a near-version of that (minus a hotfix or two, probs) before everyone else does. i don't want to name the day (because hey, who knows!) but obviously that build is coming soon.

    we think this is an amazing opportunity for us. we're going to be showing off live matches with live casting on an actual stage within our booth. people are going to get to see annihilations, the scale, and the general awesomeness of our game in the competitive environment we believe it will thrive in. it's the perfect place to get people stoked and see our game into the future.

    oh, and the build will have gas giants and a new ... celestial annihilation option (you'll love me for saving at least this surprise for you) in addition to many little enhancements that make the game run faster, nav work better, and other stuff we'll toss in the update notes.

    it's a really exciting time for us and this project our supporters made possible. just wanted to drop you all a line and give you a heads up (and i can answer a few q's). pretty cool stuff overall.

    New celestial annihilation option, you say? Asteroids or Metal Planets?
    :( I wish I were at PAX.
    Good luck Uber! The game has come along excellently!

    Fantastic news! Probably not your area but do you happen to know how the linux build is shaping up with the new update? I've been trying to help people a bit on the support forum and I know the linux crowd would love some info on where things are headed for them too :)

    This all sounds really exciting! Can't wait to get the new build on my computer.

    I'm wondering though. Will the activity's at the uber booth also be streamed through twitch or something like it cause that would be awesome!

    Thanks for the update bro!
