As an avid gamer and a journalist in college, I am excited to dispel and scream from the heavens. I can attend PAX East as my first ever media and press convention. I’m excited to network, meet fans, and showcase and represent The Illuminerdi in all of our glory. I dreamt of this moment for the longest time. In my opinion, as a gamer living on the east PAX is the equivalent of attending the Superbowl. 

It’s clear, that PAX East 2022 is going big. For those who don’t know, well-renowned video game writer, producer, content creator, voice actor, and charity streamer, Alanah Pearce, will give the Storytime keynote address at the East Coast’s most attended gaming event.

Pearce has entertained millions across international radio, internet, and television, with games like Gears 5 and Cyberpunk 2077. Her industry knowledge has elevated IGN and Rooster Teeth while drawing huge audiences to YouTube and Twitch as Charalanahzard. A champion of accessibility, equality, and diversity in games, Pearce created the Video Game Accessibility Awards in 2020 and joined a AAA studio as a video game writer that same year.

Following Pearce’s speech, those in attendance will be able to explore a massive show floor filled to the brim with hundreds of beloved developers, AAA and indie publishers, and hands-on demos of hotly anticipated titles. Gamers will be able to see the latest from 505 Games, the renowned publisher of Death Stranding, Control, Ghostrunner, and the Eiyuden Chronicle series.
