An unidentified area man was cajoled into hunting for a themed geo cache which he had no personal interest in discovering.
After weeks of prodding from online acquaintances in a digital forum related to a video game, the man agreed to ride his motorcycle to a lagoon and poke around in some bushes.
His journey was fruitful, as he retrieved a themed geo-cache for a video game that has yet to be released to the public. Despite the game being unreleased, a handful of people have become obsessed with the characters within the game, claiming there is some sort of puzzle or mystery being revealed in what they call an “Alternate Reality Game.”
The only mystery we see here, is, what was in the Piñata, and did he win anything on those scratch tickets?
As it turns out. PAX did not stand for Programming Airwave Xcitement. The radio broadcasting conference we thought we were attending was actually a video game convention. No one at Utopitech understands how we managed to register for a radio conference that doesn’t exist, they blamed the error on a faulty algorithm of some kind.
PAX is a Video Game Convention?
No one at PAX had heard of Programming Airwaves Xcitement
Our staff made the best of it, learning a lot about video games, meeting some awesome cosplayers, and giving out vinyl, mugs, and t-shirts. As the only radio station promoting themselves at the convention, we think we stood out.

They say they love games, but it looks like they love vinyl.
A Virtual Reality game let us share their booth so we could have a KQVR presence at the convention, and we made their booth a little more exciting with some fun station giveaways. Plus we learned a lot about virtual reality, a technology that may come in handy if spending time outdoors or in groups is no longer permitted in the near future.
Vinyl makes everyone happier.

In a way, we feel like we’ve been part of something historic, as PAX may be one of the last massive conventions to be held this year. The station, lead by corporate oversight from Utopitech took extra precautions after PAX to ensure our staff members did not bring Covid-19 back to the community we have committed ourselves to serving. We have yet to learn of any cases of Covid-19 coming out of the PAX convention, so we are excited to announce that we will be resuming our regular programming tomorrow. We look forward to easing your stir-crazy self-imposed isolation with folk music from area musicians.
