PAX Aus 2018, taking place 26-28 Oct. 2018 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, will highlight six new and exciting titles from independent developers as this year’s PAX Aus Indie Showcase. Congratulations to this year’s winners!
Forts is a physics-based RTS where foes design and build custom bases, arm them to the teeth and blast their opponent’s creations to rubble.
Build an armoured fort in real-time and arm it to the teeth. Collect resources, develop your tech-tree, unlock advanced weapons to target your opponent’s weak points, and feel the satisfaction as their fort comes crashing down.
Grabity is a physics-based, arena brawler where 2-4 players wield grab guns to turn objects into lethal projectiles or makeshift shields. Twin-stick twitch reflexes combine with tactical thinking in this side-on, 2.5D grab ’em up – best enjoyed with friends couch-style for maximum trash-talk and combat shenanigans!
Projection is a 2D shadow puppet game about light manipulation, curiosity and lost art. When the world is made of shadows, the one who can control the light can control the world. The themes of the game are closely related with popular tales from Indonesia, China, Turkey, Greece, and England.
Sky Noon is a multiplayer first-person shooter set in an alternate Wild West, where Smash Brothers inspired push and pull combat takes place on floating islands.
Players are equipped with a grappling hook, a lasso and an arsenal of weapons and abilities, found in randomised weapon crates on the maps, designed to knock other players away. There is no health in Sky Noon, instead players need to outflank and outplay their opponents to knock them off the ‘Floating Frontier’, an alternate Western world in the clouds!
The Gardens Between is an adventure puzzle game where best friends Arina and Frendt fall into a world of mysterious gardens. Together the duo will traverse backwards and forwards through moments in time. The Gardens Between tells an evocative story about what it means to grow up, what must be let go what should never be left behind.
The Impossible VR Party Game. Challenge your friends to a marathon of ridiculous challenges. Deceivingly simple and hilarious for players and audiences that is sure to bring the room to its feet.
Players will compete in a kart race to achieve the furthest distance. But beware, in order to advance you will have to overcome impossible challenges. Gameplay specifically designed for VR that puts players dexterity, intelligence and reflexes to the test.
