The Indie Showcase is one of the best parts of PAX; we already have a good idea what the big triple-A titles are going to be like, especially so close to their release, but the Indie Showcase is full of pleasant surprises.
Included in the showcase are Little Chomp, Major Magnet, Orion's Forge, Saturday Morning RPG, Spaceteam, Third Eye Crime, and Time Surfer. This year, all the games included are on mobile platforms, which is an interesting choice but I'm sure there will be plenty more console and PC indie titles to be found at PAX East.
The only game I've played is Spaceteam which is great if you've got a few other players. Having everyone barking instructions into their iPhones whilst frantically trying to make sure their ship doesn't explode is super fun and I'd love to get a few games in at PAX East with some of you guys.
