Ron Gilbert will deliver opening keynote at PAX Australia

Ron Gilbert, creator of the Monkey Island series and, most recently, The Cave, will deliver the opening keynote at the Penny Arcade Expo in Australia, according to a recent press release.

In addition to Gilbert, PAX Australia will also feature music acts The Protomen and MC Frontalot, as well as Rooster Teeth, the production company behind Red vs. Blue. Gilbert will deliver the "storytime" keynote on Friday morning, July 19.

PAX Australia will take place at the Melbourne Showgrounds from July 19 to July 21. The expo was announced in August 2012 and will take place in Melbourne through 2014. Three day passes and single passes for Saturday are currently sold out, though Friday and Sunday passes are still available.
