Indie Games Are Taking Over PAX Prime


August 31st through September 2nd. That’s when indie gaming officially takes over the world. OK, maybe not the entire world. More like PAX Prime going down in Seattle, Washington next weekend.

30 independent developers will be joining forces to show off more than 30 new games in a single location — the Indie Megabooth. Muah ha ha ha! Seriously, I feel like I should be doing the Dr. Evil finger-to-lip gesture after I say the words “Indie Megabooth.” It sounds so powerful and world dominating.

True to its name, the Megabooth will be the largest indie booth ever assembled (muah ha ha…whoops, sorry about that), bringing together so many developers from across the globe that it could theoretically transform into a 200 foot tall robot of indie gaming awesomeness.

We’ve already covered a few of the games attendees will be seeing on the show floor, including Toki Tori 2, Snapshot, Mark of the Ninja and Vessel (and soon we’ll have more on Guacamelee! in a Q&A with DrinkBox Studios), but that’s only scratching the surface. Click that sideways triangle you know as the Play button on the video below for a preview montage of all the different games scheduled to appear at the Megabooth.
