Posted by | August 30, 2019 | News, PC, Video | No Comments

At PAX West 2019, Epic Games is presenting eight indie games that are coming exclusively to the Epic Games Store on PC.

Below is a quick rundown of the games:

Ooblets

Manage your farm, grow and train your ooblets, explore strange lands and dance-battle other ooblet trainers in the adorable world of Oob!

No Straight Roads

Welcome to Vinyl City, where you’ll play as Mayday and Zuke to fight the massive EDM empire of mega corporation NSR. Lead a musical revolution with your indie rock band as you battle to regain control of your city. Epic musical boss battles await in this action adventure!

Manifold Garden

Explore the infinite and master the impossible in this first-person exploration game that reimagines physics and architecture.

Superliminal

Forget everything you know about puzzle games. Change your perspective and manipulate the world around you to solve mind-bending puzzles in this genre-defying debut from Pillow Castle Games.

Wattam

Enter the whimsical world of Wattam with more than 100 wacky and carefree characters from sushi to seashells and gigantic trees to normal-sized toilets. See what kind of silly things happen when you push the limits of the game’s physics and animations to create crazy and comical results. Go ahead and goof around!

The Alto Collection

The magic of Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey is coming to PC with The Alto Collection! Snowboard across beautiful alpine hills, or soar above windswept dunes on your sandboard with fluid and exhilarating physics-based gameplay. The vivid minimalist environments, original music and handcrafted audio make for an ambient and immersive experience (headphones recommended!).

Airborne Kingdom

Take a fantastical journey — fly the desert and build your domain. Airborne Kingdom uniquely blends city management and exploration, with a world and lore all its own. Build housing, gather food, satisfy needs, and grow your tribe.

The Eternal Cylinder

Experience a completely original take on the open-world survival / adventure genre. In this ambitious project by ACE Team, you’ll control a herd of adorable creatures through a strange, surreal alien world. Explore gorgeous biomes and ecosystems while avoiding The Eternal Cylinder – a mobile megastructure that has destroyed and absorbed countless civilizations.

Despite the constant controversy it’s causing among PC gamers, Epic Games continues to make exclusive publishing deals with many developers. The Ooblets developers in particular have been the targets of harassment when they made their own announcement about the deal earlier this month. The Epic Games Store is a Steam-like digital store by the creators of Fortnite.
