Last year, the Destructoid team felt like PAX offered everything we could possibly want when it came to having fun at an event from screenings of classic (if slightly painful) gaming films to the opportunity to hurl threats at a live Uwe Boll. The thought never crossed my mind that I wished more indie exhibitors were there, likely because I was too busy having fun to even think about it.

Gabe and Tycho did notice however, and as their event is growing at a ferocious pace it likely seemed the logical next step to widen the playing field. Enter PAX 10, a showcase for indie gamers to show off their works at PAX 2008. The exhibition will be shown in cooperation with the DigiPen Institute of Technology.

Want to submit your own game? You still have time, as the deadline for entries is not until May 7th, 2008. A panel of 50 industry experts (including Gabe and Tycho themselves) will judge the entries and pick the ten best to show in the PAX exhibition hall. Those winners are eligible to win the Audience Choice award as well, as they will be voted on by PAX attendees after making it to the show floor.

I'm thrilled to see this added on and hoping to meet some great indie developers come August. Cheers to Gabe and Tycho - somehow you guys just keep getting better.

Bad dog! Outpost 13 basically lets you play as The Thing

This is why you name a dog Fluffy or Fido or Spot. When you go and give it a name like Fenrir, after a mythological wolf monster, it gets taken over by an alien being and wants nothing more than to devour your flesh and bone...more

Remember Triple Triad in Final Fantasy VIII? Check out Eminence: Xander's Tales

Back in the day when I first played Final Fantasy VIII, I fantasized about a world in which people could walk up to random strangers, ask to play a card game, and be treated to one without it being weird. We are not there ye...more

Motorcycle combat racer Road Redemption on Steam Early Access

It has been a little over a year since the Road Redemption Kickstarter campaign launched, and to nobody's surprise, it has slightly missed its projected August 2014 launch window, but it is not too far behind yet. The Road R...more
