Bloodroots asks: What if Jackie Chan was a murderous viking?

PAX's Indie Megabooth is always worth checking out, and it's frequently one of the most crowded sections of the show floor. You never know exactly what to expect when you visit, but there's almost always something exciting and eye-catching ...

What the Golf? makes a boring sport better

What the Golf? is by far the shortest appointment I had at PAX West. In the overcrowded Indie Megabooth, where a day earlier I meet former Destructoid editor Hamza for the first time, its quirky demo encourages people to watch the utte...

Semblance is one adorable puzzle platformer

In between my meetings at PAX East I spent my spare time walking the floor looking for any games that might otherwise go unnoticed. After finishing up my meeting with the developers of Black Future '88, I ended up checking out another game ...

Overlooked indie games from the PAX show floor

I didn’t spend my entire weekend at PAX doing business. In between a few appointments, I got the time to catch up with an old friend and walk around the show floor from a more casual perspective. Without giving away that I was ther...

Arcade action meets biker gangs in Steel Rats

One of my last stops at PAX East 2018 was to check out Steel Rats. The project from Tate Multimedia is being handled by a small team of no more than thirty Polish developers.  The game puts you in control of the Steel Rats biker gang m...

Black Future '88 is a rogue-lite with synth-punk style

I saw an unbelievable amount of rogue-lite games at PAX East. I felt like I was drowning in the damn things, but developer Superscarysnakes' Black Future '88 and its giant colorful booth made it stand out in the sea of indie titles. I spoke...

My Memory of Us views WWII through the eyes of children

Juggler Games' My Memory of Us was demoing at PAX East this past weekend, so I dropped by to take a look at the classic-style adventure game. My Memory of Us is set in a fairy-tale version of Warsaw Poland during World War II. Naturally, it...

Off Grid makes you hack like a middle-aged dad

Watch Dogs 2 was a pretty good representation of the hacking community that has grown over the years, but it did have one big flaw. These supposed nobodies were running around with near superhuman bullet resistance and blowing shit up with ...

I got a distinct gothic vibe from Dark Devotion's PAX demo

I hate feeding into the stereotype of press comparing things to Dark Souls. When giving Dark Devotion a shot at PAX this weekend, I couldn’t really think of what else to call this at first glance. There is a stamina meter that gove...

Create the gun of your dreams in Mothergunship

In the indie games scene, procedural generation and rogue-like elements seem to be the golden formula one strives for. I can’t tell you how many games I’ve heard about with those two buzzwords attached, but Mothergunship is just...

Bonus Level's Fox N Forests is pretty damn fun

Fox N Forests doesn’t really have the most appealing name. It sounds a little like a generic mixture of canines and arboreous backgrounds, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The press e-mail we got before PAX had some won...

One Finger Death Punch is back, baby!

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything about One Finger Death Punch 2, but it looks like Silver Dollar Games is finally ready to show it off at this year's GDC, as part of the Indie Megabooth showcase. The first game i...

Bleed 2 is the best Newgrounds game you never played

For a lot of youngsters (including myself!), Flash-based game sites like Newgrounds or Miniclip were a gateway to the world of video games. These sites were easily accessible from library/Boys & Girls Club desktops or your parents' work...

I annoyed robots until they went insane in The Fall Part 2

I'll be honest, I didn't expect to ever hear news of The Fall Part 2: Unbound, let alone play a demo on the PAX West show floor. Not just because the first installment ended on a perfect thematic conclusion, although I could understand...
