Announced earlier this year in cooperation with the DigiPen Institute of Technology, The PAX 10 is a games showcase open to independent developers worldwide. The winners will be shown in the PAX Exhibit Hall alongside over 70 other exhibitors – including top publishers like Activision, EA and Ubisoft – allowing those publishers, attendees and media to view their home-grown potential. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote on the exhibited games, honoring one of The PAX 10 with the “Audience Choice Award,” to be announced on www.penny-arcade.com following this year’s expo.

“The variety and caliber of the titles blew us away,” says Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. “Narrowing down the group was a challenging process for the judges, but we’re incredibly proud to have these ten games as our kickoff showcase and can’t wait to see them on the show floor.”

Can we agree that stock markets are the devil and capitalism would be a lot better without them?

One of the unsung "good guys" of the indie scene is @Kongregate. There's something very decent about the fact they pay out no matter the $. Retweeted by Joe Rheaume..otron

Is anyone porting old school text adventure games to unity? I'd love to be able to SEE the Zork caves.

The next thing to steal is Cave Story's weapon XP system :)

Got vvvvvv checkpoints working in Mechagami. An easy thing, but I hadn't gotten around to it until now.

As long as no one ruins blue mohawks I'll be ok.

That was a FB comment about misogynist youtuber Thunderfoot, and yeah, pretty accurate description.

"I looked this guy up and wow, I never knew that I could smell an unwashed fedora through the internet." - Hahaha!

I know I'm late to the Unity party, but WHY don't new GameObjects default to 0-transforms? You have to reset every new one.

Dang it Nintendo, stop putting "new" in your game titles. It's going to feel super weird in 10 years when we buy it again on future VC.

Ironically, being poly increases your chances of getting mono.
