Frequently Asked Questions

What is PAX Dev?

Back to Top

Taking place right before PAX Prime, we’ve dedicated two days to the developer community for the craft that is game making. PAX Dev is about elevating the art and creating place to share, debate and learn. With no press access, developers can speak freely and focus entirely on their trade in a safe and comfortable environment.

Can I volunteer for PAX Dev?

Back to Top

We are not currently accepting applications for volunteers, but may at a later date.

If I purchase a PAX Dev pass, does that get me into PAX Prime as well?

Nope, sorry! The two shows have their own badges and the badge PAX Dev will not get you into PAX Prime and vice versa.

Where can I register as press / media?
