PAX 10 contest winners

By Mike Berg / July 19th, 2009 / Blog / No Comments

The PAX 10 winners have been announced. Congratulations to all the winners! This is my first year as a developer for one of these contests, so I have a new appreciation for how much work goes into these games, and getting them ready to submit them for review. The quality of work shown in this list just goes to show how important the independent game dev community is.

Here are my favourites, from first impressions:

Machinarium is absolutely gorgeous, and looks really innovative. For pre-order only now, but check out the video.

Closure has a unique gameplay element using light, and is playable in browser.

Puzzle Bloom is an in-browser Unity-built puzzle game that has a great 3d visual style, and has an interesting gameplay mechanic as well.

Again, congratulations to all the winners, and maybe we’ll see you at PAX!
