Don't miss the Indie Arena at gamescom this year


1:30 PM on 08.12.2013



We have seen the PAX 10 at PAX Prime, the Indie Megabooth at PAX East, and Indies Crash E3 at E3, so it seemed inevitable that something similar would pop up at the upcoming European videogame expo gamescom. The Indie Arena will fill that role, as the first multi-game booth put together by a group of independent developers to show up at gamescom.

Ten games will be a part of the Indie Arena this year, from a wide array of genres. The Last Tinker is particularly eye-catching for being so colorful in a Viva Piñata-esque manner, and Beatbuddy is almost like a rhythm-based Aquaria. The full list of Indie Arena games, along with links to their websites, is shown below.

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is not as simple as it looks

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake saw success on Kickstarter, and it's coming along nicely as evidence by our interview at PAX East. It looks super cute and simplistic, but there's way more depth than you'd imagine here. A deep ...more
