And your Boston Indie Showcase winners are…
PAXEast is coming up in only a few weeks and Level Up News will be there in more than spirit. As part of the PAXEast exhibition hall the Boston Indie Showcase selects three games created from small local Boston developers that normally couldn’t afford to showcase their games in the exhibition hall.
“The winning entries are:
· Blinding Silence (PC) – Team Uncertainty – A sound-based puzzle game as viewed through the ears of a blind man. As a wave of darkness has fallen over the land, and as the light wanes, so too does free will. Using the power of sound, the player must influence mindless drones in order to progress through obstacles, complete levels and return light to a land of darkness.
· Smuggle Truck (PC, Mac, Web, iPhone, iPad) – Owlchemy Labs – Smuggle Truck is an over-the-top physics-based driving game where you smuggle your passengers across the border in the least amount of time. Tilt your truck, catch newborn babies, drive over armadillos, and rocket your way over hills, through caverns and over quicksand to save the people!
· Snapshot (PC) – Retro Affect – What if a camera captured more than just an image? In Snapshot, that’s exactly what Pic’s camera does. It actually absorbs objects into photographs, removing them from existence! Paste one of your pictures back into the world and see all of your captured objects come tumbling out. Capture even the most unusual objects: doors, light, even copies of yourself! Travel through five unique worlds, collect beautiful and elusive objects, and overcome the most challenging puzzles.”
Stop by the BIS booth and check out the winners, I know I will. PAXEast is coming up on March 11th-13th, 3 Day Passes are almost sold out, so if you are planning to go you may wanna get on that. Oh and those hotel rooms, totally gone at con rates, but you may get lucky on a discount website.
