Penny Arcade has announced the six games it will promote as part of the Indie Showcase at PAX East in April.


The six games are listed below. There are a couple of observations to make here: two of the titles are Australian, and only two from the US. Additionally, PAX East shows off titles available on mobile, as opposed to the console and PC games shown at other events.

“It may not be apparent outside of my own mind, but the PEIS has a specific mission to promote games on mobile,” Penny Arcade‘s Jerry Holkins wrote.

“PAX10 is more broad. But mobile is an especially scary place to make games right now, and I think there’s good to be done thereby. Unlike a lot of games at a show like this, a lot of times you can just grab your phone out of your pocket and buy something you like right there. As magic tricks go, that’s a pretty good one.”

  • Crowman & Wolfboy, Wither Studios LLC: US
  • Duet, Kumobius: Australia
  • Framed, Loveshack: Australia
  • The Spookening, Modesty: Sweden
  • Tiny Dice Dungeon, Springloaded: Singapore
  • Wayward Souls, Rocketcat Games: US
