So I wandered a lot around the indie game area of PAX and played some games, talked to some devs, and generally found some really cool things that I’m looking forward to and ended up getting beta keys, or put on email lists, and little cards about to follow along.
The games I’m watching
Creativerse – it’s really fun, think minecraft but with PVP built in, blueprints, and teleporting, and super immersive.
Necropolis – The art is what really captured me. I didn’t end up playing this one, but damn is it gorgeous. Talked to one of the people at the booths and it sounds fantastical.
Gigantic – this was huge at PAX, and it looks super fun – the art is really interesting to me.
Infinifactory – SUPER FUN LOOKING PUZZLE GAME OF BUILDING THINGS, available on steam, coming to PS4. Found this entirely by accident in the indie megabooth trying to get out of people’s way, so happy I did.
Sword Coast Legends – this one I think has been getting the most press, because it’s Dungeons and Dragons. Dungeons and Dragons games are The Games I Stand In Line For At PAX apparently, annnnnd playing it was really fun. It’d be a great way to play D&D long distance since one player can be a DM and then you have 4 others in the party. I was a dwarf paladin, and I was the only one in my party who didn’t wipe. ahahaha. Seriously, fun shit though.
Commander Kamala – surprisingly enough, may be the one I’m looking forward to the most. I usually SUCK at space-shooters but I tried this one, and talked to the sole(!!!!!!!) developer on the project and I’m actually super excited about it. It’s really fun, and for someone who sucks at these kinds of games, being actually able to PLAY it is really rad. Plans are to release it in 2016, and I really really want to stream it, so maybe. Also there’s a dog. Also female protagonist. Anyway, it’s rad.
