Well, another year and another crazy PAX Australia event has come and gone. Buoyed by the addition of EB Games’ inclusion, attendance this year seemed to be at an all-time high, and gamers packed the hall in droves to get their hands on some upcoming titles prior to release.
But one thing PAX has always been known for is the promotion of the indie titles, and this year it seemed that a little more care was given to them by moving them to the entrance of the Expo Hall. Being the first thing you see as you enter rather than in the back corner towards the Tabletop and Freeplay areas, PAX Rising and Indie Showcase really seemed to get the recognition it was due, and I don’t think I saw a stand empty with all the games on show.
Of course, personal taste and opinion will vary from person to person, but from the games I saw or got my hands on, the games below were my picks of show.
