Check Out These Unreal Engine Games Inside Indie MEGABOOTH at PAX West 2017

By Daniel Kayser

Pax West 2017 is happening September 1-4 in Seattle and, once again, we’ll be sponsoring several Unreal Engine developers inside the Indie MEGABOOTH. The games on display feature a wide variety of content ranging from fast-paced jetpack shooters to turn-based war operas.

Here are the Unreal Engine-powered titles you’ll find this year at PAX West.

Midair by Archetype Studios - Midair is a fast-paced jetpack shooter set in a breathtaking new sci-fi universe. Use movement and physics to your advantage, outwit your enemy from every angle, build bleeding-edge defenses, and fully customize the way you play. Break the mold of traditional shooters and jetpack your way into a challenging new experience!

MOTHERGUNSHIP by Terrible Posture Games and Grip Digital - MOTHERGUNSHIP mixes bullet-hell intensity with the shooting, customization, and traversal of the first-person genre. Fight your way through the alien fleets, facing randomized enemy and level mayhem as you clear rooms and take out some of the biggest bosses seen in the FPS genre. Fight, Craft, and Resist in a uniquely chaotic experience.

Obduction by Cyan Inc. - From Cyan, the indie studio that brought you Myst, comes a new sci-fi adventure. As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a curious, organic artifact falls from the starry sky and transports you from your cozy existence across the universe into an alien landscape infused with pieces of Earth from unexpected times and places. The strange worlds of Obduction reveal their secrets as you explore, coax, and consider their clues. As you bask in the otherworldly beauty and discover the enigmatic landscapes, remember that the choices you make will have substantial consequences. This is your story now.

Q.U.B.E. 2 by Toxic Games - The highly anticipated sequel to the top-rated spatial-puzzle game, Q.U.B.E. 2 puts players in the shoes of British archaeologist, Amelia Cross, on a gorgeous, new alien destination. With the help of her fellow survivor, Emma, Amelia must face the challenges of the Q.U.B.E. in the hope of finding a way back home. Q.U.B.E. 2 retains the shifting, environmental puzzles of the original but wraps the action around Amelia’s own intimate story and her quest for survival.

TINY METAL by Area 35 - It’s war! Join second lieutenant Nathan Gries and his troops in TINY METAL, where you’ll go head-to-head against the invading Zipang army with your ground and air units. Send them running scared, then take the fight to their home turf and defend your kingdom’s sovereignty as a proud soldier of Artemesia. In this turn-based war opera for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac, experience a riveting tale unlike any other and answer for yourself what is, and what isn't, worth fighting for.

Congrats to all of the above Unreal Engine teams on the upcoming showings of their games.

We’re proud to support the program with sponsorship that helps fund booth space, signage and equipment needs.
