Ian Birnbaum

The PAX 10, a select group of outstanding indie games featured each year at PAX Prime in Seattle, has been announced. Among the list are some recent stand-outs like Gunpoint and Rogue Legacy , but also some lesser-known upcomers like Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and chemistry-puzzler Sokobond .

The games are selected with an eye toward “gameplay and overall fun-factor,” according to the 50 industry-expert judges. The majority of the list call the PC home, but there are a couple of iOS games and multiplatform games as well. TowerFall, in particular, began as an OUYA exclusive before branching out into the PC universe.

The full PAX 10 list:

  • Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche by Beast Games
  • Badland by Frogmind (iOS game)
  • Escape Goat 2 by MagicalTimeBean
  • Gunpoint by Suspicious Developments
  • Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime by Asteroid Base
  • Owlboy by D-Pad Studio
  • Ridiculous Fishing by Vlambeer (iOS game)
  • Rogue Legacy by Cellar Door Games
  • Sokobond by Alan Hazelden, Harry Lee and Ryan Roth
  • Towerfall by Matt Makes Games
