I love PAX, but I also have a major problem with it. There's so much stuff to see that I end up in a state of perpetual FOMO. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, and it's even worse for people who aren't able to go.
This got me to thinking - what if we could bring a little slice of PAX to Twitch? And we're going to, with a PAX Indie Demo Reel Stream.
Indie games are always my favourite part of the show, and I would love to share some of the amazing local talent we have with all of you. So on Thursday November 23 we'll be streaming demo builds of 5 yet-to-be-released Australian games that were part of PAX Rising.
Here's what we played:
You are RUMU - a robot designed to clean, and to love. You awake in a fully automated Smart Home. Your only companions are Sabrina, the house AI and watchful guide, and the home’s dysfunctional cast of semi-intelligent devices. And Ada, the cat.
When something draws you away from your home maintenance duties and into the hidden passageways and long forgotten rooms of the house, you’ll be faced with challenging moral dilemmas forcing you beyond your programming to uncover the truth about the love and loss of your elusive family.
Projection: First Light follows the adventures of Greta, a girl living in a mythological shadow puppet world, as she embarks on a journey of self-enlightenment with the assistance of legendary heroes from each culture she explores.
Once branded a HERETIC. Now YOU have been chosen. Reclaim our sacred weapons. Take back our ancestral lands. If you can stand... AMID EVIL.
Players will experience the story of a supernatural Melbourne cafe where the dead are permitted to return for one last night to walk among the living and enjoy one last cup of coffee. Through a series of vignettes, players will experience the story from the varied viewpoints of a diverse cast of characters, and experience a supernaturally-tinged version of the local culture of Melbourne's cafe scene.
