FunimationCon 2020: So AX Is Dead Now What? & IndieCade’s 2020 Anywhere and Everywhere Festival!

We just have the earliest of news on the just announced FunimationCon. Yup, it's a fully online event taking place the same time Anime Expo would have.

They're are no details beyond a website telling us it's:

A two-day stream of cosplay meetups, industry panels, Q&A sessions, and more.
The con is coming to you.

It's at least something. However, so far online cons haven't gone so well.
The, let's just say pathetic, WonderCon@home, needed some better management 

on multiple fronts. Like a easy to use web-site to get to vendors, artists and talent. And we mean building a new website to facilitate that and having some more professional streams.

We did actually like the printable badge from WonderCon@home and hope FunCon can do a little bit more. Print some badges after completing a panel. Online achievements. Something.

And, sadly, further down the line it looks like IndieCade has given up on doing a physical festival this year, even though it's usually scheduled in October.

We now have IndieCade’s 2020 Anywhere and Everywhere Festival taking place online Oct 16th-24th.

Check the web-site for more info, but it promises the same as the other online con with streaming panels and showing off new games.

We do wonder how we are going to play. We guess we'll have to wait and see how that's figured out.
