The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

The Updating List of PAX Indies

Posted on Monday, August 25 @ 15:30:00 PST by

Are you going to PAX Prime in Seattle? We'll be there for hands-on, panels, culture, tabletop... you name it, PAX has all the new friends and gaming you could want. We'll have a lot of coverage leading up to the show and we'll get started with a list of interesting indies you should check out.

Below you'll find images, trailers, and descriptions of independent games and developers attending PAX Prime 2014.

Arena: Cyber Evolution
Developer: Spearhead Games

Arena: Cyber Evolution offers a multiplayer online sports arena, as opposed to an multiplayer online battle arena game, where players face-off in 3v3 soccer with superpowers. The team calls it a "passion project, with a thriving community of players." Early access launches on August 18th and the developers will have a build at PAX Prime.

Upsilon Circuit
Developer: Robot Loves Kitty

Upsilon Circuit offers a "huge story to unravel over months" in a world where death lasts forever and monster "personalities" that likely have an effect on combat and how you battle. "You fight monsters, avoid traps, and compete with the other team, all while desperately trying to stay alive."

Developer: Frima Studio

Chariot is an "indie couch co-op, physics-based platformer where you play a princess who must carry her deceased father's coffin to the comfortable resting place of his choosing." The developers promise Saturday morning cartoon levels of fun with varied levels.

#IDARB (It Draws A Red Box)
Developer: Other Ocean

This 2D platformer features a collaboration between developer Other Ocean and random folks who've taken to the Internet to offer their opinions on the game. It's described as a "chaotic 8-player eSport jumping jetpack future arena ball game" taking elements from Bomberman and Super Smash Bros.

RAD Boarding
Developer: Other Ocean

This "action packed" mobile game challenges players to perform multiple in-air tricks with points multiplying as you chain moves together. "Destroy the abominations of nature that are birthed at the end of the world! Share your death-defying run with your friends on Facebook and Twitter!" Or, you know, just enthusiastically high-five your buddies at PAX Prime 2014 after you try the game for yourself.

This War of Mine
Developer: 11bit Studios

This War of Mine features gameplay that turns the typical conflict you'd find in video games on its head. Rather than shooting at enemies or moving units into position, this puts you in the role of "a civilian scavenging for food and medicine, protecting your kin from violent survivors, and struggling to live one more day."

Developer: 11bit Studios

"A strategic-to-the-bone, starfleet command game" might sound like a lot for an indie title, though this one's focus on multiplayer will offer plenty of replay value in the strategy, movement, deception, and fine line between victory and defeat.

​Developer: MisfitsAttic

In addition to hosting a panel about independent game developer couples, Misfits-Attic will have its game Duskers at the show for anyone who would like to try the game. It's a "command line driven, sci-fi, survival horror game." If you catch them at the panel on Saturday you might see more than the pitch video above.

Developer: Motiga

This fantasy action game features 5 versus 5 multiplayer where you and your guardian "fight for supremacy" on the battlefield. The game features various powers and the ability to customize your abilities to some degree.

Stealth Inc 2
Developer: Curve Studios

This Wii U exclusive has never been shown to the public though Curve's other games, The Swapper and Thomas Was Alone have done well on the platform. PAX-goers can check the game out in Nintendo's booth.

Nom Nom Galaxy
Developer: Q-Games

This indie Early Access title offers soup-making action for players who like to go off-world for alien-combat and hearty meal crafting experiences. We wrote a preview a few months back. Check it out here.

Airscape: The Fall of Gravity
Developer: Cross-Product

This indie game from start-up team Daniel West, Claudia Starke, Sam Gossner, Dieter Theuns, and Scott Rogers features platforming gameplay "about an octopus lost in a strange and dangerous world." They'll be located in the Indie Megabooth.

Moon Hunters
Developer: Kitfox Games

Kitfox games will bring the role-playing game that gives players the chance to solve the mystery of the moon's disappearance. "Along that journey, their choices and reputations shape the legend that their tribe will remember for generations to come."

Developer: 17 Bit Studios

This game features an 80s anime theme with "addictive and endlessly challenging zero gravity dogfighting." The developer has also added a few new elements, including rogue-like with levels that feature some purposefully designed elements while procedurally assembling them into a cohesive playing experience.

The Next Penelope
Developer: Aurelian Regard

This 2D hybrid racing and action game sets players in future-Greece where Penelope has to look for Ulysses and explore a variety of worlds. "Each planet features unique situations, races, bosses, and new permanent abilities" for player's spaceships.

Dragon Fin Soup
Developer: Grimm Bros

This roguelike RPG is set in a fairytale world where players take on the role of an alcoholic with some extreme fantasy weaponry. The developers promise procedurally generated dungeons, story, survival, and endless game modes, and more.

Dungeon of the Endless
Developer: Amplitude Studios'

Xbox One gamers at PAX Prime 2014 might want to check out Amplitude's new dungeon-crawler where players can gather resources to "construct defenses and explore an infinite number of dungeons in an effort to reach the planet's surface."

Tabletop Simulator
Developer: Berserk Games

This indie game, available on Windows, Mac, and Linux via Steam here, lets players throw stuff, create mods, pick up pieces, "rotate, shake, and throw any object" with up to eight people with in-game voice chat, just like in-real-life voice chat.
