The organizers behind the Indie MegaBooth Showcase have revealed the list of titles that they will have at PAX West 2018. The event is taking place from August 31st through September 3rd at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington. The Indie Megabooth Showcase will once again have MegeBooth, MiniBooth, and TableTop areas. This year, the showcase will have 78 games created by 75 different indie game developers from 17 different countries.

PAX West 2018 attendees will have the chance to meet the developers behind the games. If you will be attending the event on Labor Day weekend, you can even start planning your route, as the organizers have released a map (scroll down on that page to find it). Their long gameplay montage video showing the games in action is coming next week, but for now the organizers of the Indie MegaBooth Showcase have also put out a teaser trailer for the event:

 

The showcases curated by Indie MegaBooth are funded through sponsorships and partnerships with companies that wish to invest in the future of indie game development. The 2018 Indie MegaBooth Showcase has been made possible by ID@Xbox, PlayStation, TapTap, Oculus, Tencent, Unreal Engine, Oasis Games, and Kickstarter. Other key partners include iam8bit, Pixio, Gigabyte/AORUS and Astro. Furthermore, some additional support came from past Indie MegaBooth Showcase exhibitors – also known as IMB Alumni.

For the 2018 Indie MegaBooth Showcase, the MegaBooth area will be the same throughout the entire event, but the MiniBooth and TableTop areas will swap in a different set of games for the second half of the event. Here is the 2018 Indie MegaBooth Showcase lineup as quoted from the press release (with some formatting changes to make it fit within the width of the page):

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.
