Boston is lucky to host one of the largest gaming conventions on the planet, Pax East. Even if the spectacle of the sprawling AAA game studios doesn’t hold your interest, you can find an explosion of creativity in the labyrinth of smaller indie game studios. Here were some games not to be missed.
- Knight Squad – Easy to understand 8-player madness described as Gauntlet meets Bomberman.
- Downwell – The friendly and effusive @moppin_ traveled from Japan to show off his frantic game of descent.
- Starwhal – A narwhal battle game in space with a neon aesthetic. The narwhal battle game you have been waiting for.
- Adventures of Pip – A platformer who’s protagonist who can evolve though the different “bit” eras of gaming history.
