Each PAX begins with our traditional opening ceremony, Storytime from an industry luminary. Leaders in gaming; be they developers, influencers, artists, designers, and more, have regaled PAX attendees with the story of their lives and how they cemented their place in the annals of game culture.

PAX East 2023's Storytime Speaker is Charles Brungardt, GRAMMY-winning CEO of IllFonic, the asymmetric multiplayer experts behind Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, Predator: Hunting Grounds, and Friday the 13th: The Game.
