Good Morning Kids!
It’s April, which means that PAX East 2016 is right around the corner! Sub Cultured will be descending upon Boston from April 22nd through the 24th like a pack of geeky vultures, bringing you all of the latest the gaming world has to offer. The sprawling floor of that massive convention center will have everything from consoles to tabletop to PC.
Of course there will be the big time “huge-booth” studios that will be in attendance like Blizzard, Square-Enix and Bethesda. But the great thing about PAX events is that it’s not just the big guys that get spotlight. The Indie Showcase will be featuring some more bite-sized offerings for your mobile devices, and the Indie Megabooth is boasting 87 games so far from 83 indie developers. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of creative things these devs come up with – there’s a PAX mainstay Dragon Fin Soup, a horror mystery in Night Cry, and crossdressing and social manipulation as themes in Ladykiller in a Bind.
… Yeah. And that’s only 3 out of the 87.
If the trend of gaming shows I’ve been to holds up and combines with recent developments in hardware, I’m expecting to see a lot of VR demos. The Gear VR is a device becoming more mainstream because of its affordability and and the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are granting new higher-powered VR platforms for development.
Make sure to keep up with Sub Cultured during PAX East to keep up with all the PAX East happenings – and if you’re there or see us on the floor give us a shout!
