They along with 6 Florida teams (University of Miami, University of Florida, University of South Florida, Florida’s Finest, Rollins College, and Eastern Florida State College) will be representing the South at the IQA World Cup VII.
man it’s kinda irritating that there’s more than one con named Omnicon u_u idk how long the con in Texas has been going on but Tennessee Tech University (in Cookeville, TN) has an Omnicon also and I’m just gonna shamelessly promote it a bit
a couple years ago we had Doug Walker- yes, the That Guy With The Glasses Doug Walker
Last year, we had Jason Charles Miller (country musician who’s done a couple videos with Felicia Day, and voice actor in a number of video games, including Guild Wars 2, Starcraft 2, Diablo III, WoW Cata… and several Batman cartoons and Avatar TLA too, he’s done a bit of everything) and Lauren Landa (Blazblue series, Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
And this year it looks like we MIGHT get James Portnow, game designer, adjunct faculty member of Digipen, frequent contributor to many big name video game websites, and the writer of Penny Arcade TV’s Extra Credits. I think I also heard mumblings of Aziz Ansari and Grant Imahara being communicated with. Nothing is set in stone yet!! but probably at least one of these three will be here.
We have really cool vendors and really cool people, and really cool panels too. We also see some pretty amazing cosplay! The Team Tardis cosplayers will be there! I’m close friends with a couple of them.
The con is March 15-17, at the campus’s University Center, and we’re currently having one of our planning meetings so I figured I’d put us out there- anybody interested? It would be a blast!
(also before anybody says anything, we legally had the omnicon name first but we as a group don’t have the money and lawyers to do anything about it– not trying to raise a ruckus I’m just putting it out there)
