INDIE MEGABOOTH REVEALS MORE THAN 80 PLAYABLE

VIDEO GAMES AND TABLETOP GAMES FOR PAX WEST 2017 LINEUP

 

Seattle, WA – August 11, 2017 – Organizers of the Indie MEGABOOTH (IMB) have revealed the curated PAX West lineup, which will bring together 84 independently made games within its MEGABOOTH, MINIBOOTH, and TABLETOP areas. Like previous years, the massive IMB PAX West footprint – more than 5,700 square feet – will house an eclectic collection of indie titles ranging from PC to console to tabletop games from September 1-4, 2017 in the Washington State Convention Center.

Some of the titles and studios selected to participate in the Indie MEGABOOTH are entirely new, with some being playable to the public for the first time. A snapshot of some of the playable titles include: the recently unveiled UFO 50, collection of 50 retro-flavored games (developed by Mossmouth a super group of devs behind several acclaimed indie games such as SpelunkyDownwell, among others); Dunk Lords, a two-on-two basketball beat-’em-up by Andy Hull of Story Fort (lead programmer of Spelunky); Return of the Obra Dinn, the next game by Lucas Pope the creator of the critically acclaimed title Papers, Please; and Klei Entertainment’s action adventure title Hot Lava, which transports players back to their childhood imagination to relive those moments of excited, joy and chaos – but whatever you do… don’t touch the floor!

Additionally, Indie MEGABOOTH has partnered with the creators of Exploding Kittens, the hit card game and one of the biggest Kickstarter campaigns of all-time, to organize a pop-up Kitten Café named “Non-Exploding Kittens Room” that will double as a pet adoption and fundraiser for MEOW Cat Rescue, a local non-profit animal shelter. The “Non-Exploding Kittens Room” will be located in the ACT Theatre and is open to the public, not just PAX West badge holders.

Within the MEGABOOTH area on the show floor, there will be four different games featured in the TABLETOP each day of PAX West. All sixteen games that cycle through, will also be playable in the ACT Theatre throughout the entirely of PAX West.

Indie MEGABOOTH would like to thank this year’s returning sponsors PlayStation and ID@Xbox, as well as Unreal Engine, Oculus, and Intel for their continued support. With special thanks to Cards Against Humanity and Kickstarter for their Indie TABLETOP sponsorship.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
