Each month we showcase a video from around the industry that captures important announcements and trends. We’ve seen recently many indie games come to market from small online-only studios, a trend that is only increasing due to COVID-19 and other industry shifts. The opportunities are ripe for the game industry, especially now that nearly anyone can pick up some software, a decent computer, and begin work on the next surprise hit quite possibly all by themselves or a small remote team .
For this month’s industry video spotlight, we chose Get Indie Gaming’s ‘The BEST Indie Games of PAX Online and EGX Digital 2020 video. PAX Online is a new event that was created as a way to continue PAX during the current pandemic situation. EGX Digital, sort of like a European version of PAX, similarly went all-digital this year. Combine the two and you have some amazing online gaming event moments!
The video begins with Distant Light, a huge hand-crafted open world on a side-scroller view… with some literal twists along the way. Dreamscaper, Necrobarista, Boyfriend Dungeon, Moo Lander (our favorite), and over a dozen other games are previewed.
Check out the lineup below!
Whether you are an event coordinator, press, or general attendee, if you have an event video to share with us, please let us know and we’ll be happy to feature it!
