Indie Mega Booth is arguably easier to get lost in than all of PAX itself. During PAX East, I found myself wandering the many games for several hours, easily losing track of time to the myriad of interesting projects. PAX West looks to be even better, as 84 playable games have been announced to be at the Mega Booth, Mini Booth, and Tabletop areas.
A while back, I covered the announcement of the new PAX Unplugged event, an expo that focuses primarily on table-top gaming. With the sudden rise of board games and card games at these sort of conventions, having a whole PAX dedicated to those types of gamers was an obvious response.

I can’t help but feel captivated and deeply moved by the game Hob. During my hands-on experience at PAX East, I had the privilege of sitting down with members from the Runic Games team and trying things out myself. Needless to say, I was impressed and fell in love.
PAX East 2017 provided a lot of great chances to see upcoming games from many companies on the show floor. At one of my many appointments, I got to sit down and play the PC game Conarium from Iceberg Interactive. Conarium is a chilling Lovecraft-inspired game, which follows a story involving four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of na...[Read More]
