PAX Australia revealed the six inaugural PAX Aus Indie Showcase winners who will take center stage at the expo's Indie Pavilion.
The winning six games are as follows:
- Alexander Bruce's first-person puzzle game, Antichamber, for Windows PC.
- Man Fight Dragon's action strategy title, Black Annex, for Windows PC.
- Kumobius' arcade flyer, Duet, for iOS.
- Endgame Studios' retro style platformer, Fractured Soul, for Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC.
- Impromptu Games' puzzle game, Influx, for Windows PC and Mac.
- Brawsome's puzzle adventure game, MacGuffin's Curse, for Windows PC, Mac and iOS.
A panel of gaming industry peers chose the winning games out of 60 titles submitted by Australian and New Zealand independent developers. The six titles will receive free booth space in the center of the Indie Pavilion, which will showcase a total of 30 indie games from the region.
"We basically do as much as we can to push them out there, we feel these games are special and deserve to be recognized as examples of what Australian developers are capable of," PAX Australia's communications and content manager Guy "Yug" Blomberg told Polygon.
The winners will also participate in a Aus Indie Showcase panel at PAX Aus, be included in the expo's printed showguide and will receive promotion on the PAX Aus website.
The expo will take place between July 19 to 21 at the Melbourne Showgrounds.
