X-Play interviewed all of the PAX 10. Here’s their Chronotron interview! I have no idea why I look so unenthusiastic! Pointing a camera at me makes my face do weird things, I guess.

Thanks X-Play!

SEATTLE – July 9, 2008 – After sifting through over 80 submissions from a wealth of genres and gameplay hybrids from ‘exploratory puzzle’ to tactical to rhythm/action, The PAX 10 panel of industry experts selected the ten best submissions in terms of gameplay and “fun factor” for inclusion in The PAX 10. Penny Arcade was pleased to announce today The PAX 10 winners to be displayed at the upcoming Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center in Seattle Aug. 29-31, 2008.

The PAX 10 are (in alphabetical order):

- The Amazing Brain Train by Grubby Games (puzzle/strategy)
- Audio Surf by Dylan Fitterer (rhythm/action)
- Chronotron by Scarybug Games  (puzzle/platformer)
- Impulse by a team of Rochester Institute of Technology students (puzzle)

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.”

Great Reviews!

Chronotron is getting some incredibily positive reviews from game sites!

Download Squad “Today’s Time Waster”

Rock Paper Shotgun “You had me at “time-travelling robots.”

Jay is Games “While it’s true that time travel or a “rewind” concept isn’t necessarily cutting-edge anymore when it comes to casual games, the concept is refined—and executed almost to perfection—in Chronotron.”

But I think my favorite comment so far was from dudster567

“I just kept rewinding, and whenever I come out, tons of me keep coming out, and DANCING!
Hundreds of me dancing EVERYWHERE!”

That’s the way to play Chronotron!

Man do I love FTL. It's a perfect game to just forget about everything stressful and fully commit to.

Mario only ever got those cool bouncy super balls in Mario Land. I'm adding them as a power tier for the fireball in Mechagami.

The sad thing is, I'll go to my grave without anyone ever knowing how clever my passwords are.
