** Exciting Gamewarp Newz **
« on: April 04, 2013, 03:49:11 PM »
It's that time again, and we are proud to announce some exciting news for Game Warp 3, returning to the International Palms Hotel in Orlando. The show runs from July 26th - 28th, 2013, and this year will be truly bigger and better than ever before!

We are pleased to have Donny (Greywolf) return to run the IFPA-sanctioned pinball tournament, where you can compete against the best players in the country, earn WPPR points, and, with a guaranteed prize pool of $2000, this year should see some outstanding competition!

Also up this year, as we have already revealed, we are very proud and excited to have Twin Galaxies on-hand to verify world record attempts, which is great as we'll have David Cruz attempting a "perfect score" on Pac-Man, returning world-record holders Keith Swanson and Todd Rodgers going face-to-face in a Gorf-Off, and Billy Mitchell joining the line-up for a Twin Galaxies World Record Holders panel hosted by Richie Knucklez!!

And if you thought one "-Off" wasn't enough, we'll also be having a Screw-Off, where if you get the high score on one of the only two Screw Looses in existence, you could be the new world record holder! We're also hosting a Rygar world record attempt (arcade or MAME) and all the world record attempts will be streamed LIVE online!

Keith (ArcadeDoctor.com) and Chris (THE BART Barcade) will be sponsoring the arcade tournament this year, with a new line-up of games on which you can try your luck to become the champion. There'll also be a full-blown Street Fighter Championship tournament with cash prizes, movie tickets, and the ever-important bragging rights to be won!

The show will be open 2 p.m. - midnight on Friday, 11 a.m. - midnight on Saturday, and 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Sunday, but we're happy to announce that there will be extended early hours (an additional two hours) for Villagers and a special Village-only event that will give fellow Villagers a chance to meet each other, get some more time with the games, and also participate in a special "fun" tournament with prizes awarded!

This year, in addition to the video game we raffled off last year, we're adding another raffle for a pinball game, as well as a third raffle benefiting a charity, with prizes being supplied by many companies associated with the arcade/pinball community.

T-shirt pre-orders will be available starting in May, and the artist is currently hard at work on an amazing design and, with his previous works, we think you'll agree that it's amazing and a must-have to add to your wardrobe!

Bringing a game? We'll again be offering incentives for anyone bringing games, such as FREE weekend show passes, FREE hotel accommodations, and more, so get your games ready, as we'll be opening up the system for submitting your games very soon.

All this and more fun and exciting new plans are currently in the works for the show and we hope that they'll all come to pass, so keep watching for more announcements!

We are working on a website for game submissions to allow everyone to be able to manage their game submissions easily for all Florida shows.

also to add, we will be having an 'after hours' event, once the doors close at midnight will reopen till 3am  more details to follow on that, but with early hours, later hours, gives everyone more time to play and enjoy the great lineup Gamewarp 3 will offer this year

I am working on a game submission system, were you can register, and submit games/add/remove etc, so, that way you can submit a game, and then we can lock it in, but you can freely move games in and out of the list. also the even techs can log notes, or pull your information to contact you.
