Some guest news and a new poll

We have some big news to share! Aarin from Aarinfantasy (the world’s largest yaoi community) will be attending Room 801 and bringing art and merchandise by Black Monkey Pro, PenguinFrontier, Otome’s Way and Aphin123 to sell at the convention. She’s currently taking donations to cover the table fee, so if you’re an AF forum member you can help promote these artists and earn forum points at the same time.

Our games guest Luke Miller is a few thousand votes away from getting his game My Ex-Boyfriend the Space Tyrant! into the top 100 on Steam Greenlight. Unfortunately it’s suffering from an unusual imbalance of negative votes, which are most likely due to Steam users disliking the subject matter rather than the game itself. If you’d like to see a light-hearted gay sci-fi adventure game on Steam and you have an account, head over and vote.

And here’s this month’s poll. This is an honest question, because we’re working out how to run a certain giveaway…

Registration, July Poll and website updates

Registration for Room 801 is now open! Register before the end of September and save up to $15 on your ticket. We’ve also updated the website with some venue information and FAQs, with lots more to come.

To the volunteers and traders who have expressed their interest so far: thank you so much, and we’ll be in touch with specific information by the end of this month.

This month’s poll is either inspiring or faintly embarrassing, depending on how you look at it…

And here’s this month’s poll…
