2011 PAX 10 indie selection includes Fez, Jamestown, more

Each year, ten lucky independent games are highlighted at the Penny Arcade Expo. The PAX 10 line-up for this year’s PAX Prime has been chosen. Here are the titles in question:

  • A Flipping Good Time (PC) — Digipen Institute of Technology
  • Antichamber (PC) — Alexander Bruce
  • Atom Zombie Smasher (PC, Mac, Linux) — Blendo Games
  • Fez (XBLA) — Polytron
  • Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony (PC) — Final Form Games
  • Snapshot (PC) — Retro Affect
  • Solar 2 (PC) — Murudai
  • Splatters (PC) — SpikySnail
  • Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix & Her Nightmare (PC) — Bad Pilcrow
  • Word Fighter (iOS, Android) — Feel Every Yummy

This has quickly become one of my favorite parts of the show. The area dedicated to these guys was packed last year, and I expect to see nothing less next month.
