The full lineup has been revealed for the PAX West Indie Megabooth, and these are the games we are most excited to see.
PAX West 2019 is right around the corner, and we can’t wait to see how everything is going with some of our favorite indie titles. PAX has been growing in popularity since its inception in 2004. Now, the Penny Arcade Expo (or PAX as its now called) sees visitors from all over the world, meeting in one place to talk about one thing, games. This years PAX West will run from August 30th to September 2nd, and will take place at the Washington State Convention Center. There will be many games featured that are on the top of list of games to keep an eye on. Here are some of our favorites to appear at PAX West 201`9
A Fold Apart
A Fold Apart is beautiful and emotion indie title that touches on some pretty deep topics. The game revolves around the two main characters being in a long distance relationship, and trying to find a way to come together. The game explores an emotional journey that was experienced by the developers themselves, then relayed into this adorable indie game. A Fold Apart is a side-scrolling 2D adventure with foldable environments. You must fold the world around you to find your way to that special someone. Learn more about A Fold Apart by checking out our coverage at myPotatoGames.
Cook, Serve, Delicious 3
We just can’;t get enough of cooking games here at myPotatoGames. Cook, Serve, Delicious has been on the collective gamers plates for sometime now, and has only increased in popularity since the release of the original title in 2013. The latest iteration in the cooking phenomenon now has its very own seat at this years PAX West. Its time chop, blend and mince our way across the country to become the best chef in the land. That land just happens to be a futuristic version of the U.S. where Nashville is the capitol. You can find out all you need to know about Cook, Serve, Delicious 3 by checking out myPotatoGames coverage of the title.
The VR world has been quite a fickle being until recent times. Now, with so many great VR games on the table, its getting tougher to condemn this new way of gaming. Falcon Age is a perfect example of how far virtual reality gaming has come. You will get the chance to raise your very own falcon, and use it to hunt, gather and fight to reclaim your cultural legacy in the lost art of falcon hunting. Maybe even gain enough prestige as a falconer to impress Roland Deschain (not a character in the game). Falcon Age will also be making an appearance at the Megabooth, and you can find more info on the tile by (of course) checking out myPotatoGames coverage of the title.
Spiritfarer is yet another beautiful title that leans a bit more toward the emotional side of gaming. You are basically playing the role of a cute version of Charon, the captain of the ferry across the River Styx. You will befriend the spirits that you have been tasked to transport, and will craft, farm and cook for them as you learn how best to say goodbye. Spiritfarer made a big splash at this years E3 conference, and we can’t wait to see what they have to show us at this years PAX West. Also, don’t forget to check out myPotatoGames coverage of Spiritfarer for more info on the title.
It is quite possible that you live under a rock if you haven’t yet heard about Calico. Calico is the cutest game ever about magical girls running cat cafes. Calico is a super relaxing adventure title currently set to be released next year. This title is another that has taken much inspiration from Animal Crossing, and looks to be just as adorable. In Calico, you are beset upon a small village and tasked with opening and running a functioning cafe for the magical folk in the region. There are also cats. Lots of cats. So many cats, in fact, it might be the most pawesome and purrfect game currently in production. For more information on Calico, check out myPotatoGames coverage of the game.
In case you missed it, Quench is a story-driven puzzle game where you play as Shepherd, an avatar of nature. The goal of the game is to manipulate the weather to guide Shaman, a young elephant, to help his herd in restoring their home to its natural state. However, Quench isn’t just about helping beings in a virtual world. The developers have also taken another most awesome and wholesome step in donating some of their profits to charity. This is such a beautiful gesture, and is one that we hope to see more in the gaming community. Learn everything you need to know about Quench, by…yes…checking out myPotatoGames coverage of the title. We weren’t kidding when we said we had some favorites at PAX West this year!
Riverbond is a voxel style hack-n-slash dungeon crawler that we love for its super cute graphics. Riverbond will feature couch co-op multiplayer functionality, so you and friends can pick apart the world together. Riverbond is going to be playable on the Nintendo Switch at this years indie mini booth, and we can’t wait to see this title in action. Team up with friends to take out the darkness that now rules the land in Riverbond. For a few more details on this game, you can check out myPotatoGames coverage of the title.
Newt One is an Uber-beautiful and whimsical indie title the is full of good vibes and fun times. In Newt One, the player is rewarded by how much life they are able to breathe into the world, instead of how much they can snuff out, which makes it the perfect addition to our favorites. Kinda the opposite of violence. You play as Newt, a new tone in the world of Groovy Hue, a musical land that has fallen into the Great Slumber. Is it up to you to spread your music throughout the land to bring music back into this silent environment. You can find out even more information about Newt One by checking out myPotatoGames coverage of the game.
