Sixteen indies band together to show twenty games: the Indie MEGABOOTH at PAX East 2012


April 2nd, 2012 -- Boston, MA -- While the big studios work to outdo each other, 16 indies have combined forces at PAX East to create the Indie MEGABOOTH. They're showcasing 20 games at the center of the convention, thereby assembling the highest concentration of inventive, quirky, fantastic games on the show floor per square foot. (They measured this.) Fans can play the latest indie games, sneak a peek at as-yet-unseen titles, and interact with bona fide developers. More info at
