PAX Australia is once again set to showcase a bunch of great indie games, and like last year a panel has selected six titles from Australia and New Zealand’s indie game scene to spotlight. From a physics-based RTS, to an arena brawler, and even a shadow puppet adventure. There's once again something for everyone.

Here are the PAX Aus 2017 Indie Showcase Winners (ordered alphabetically).

Developer: EarthWork Games
Location: Brisbane, Australia

Forts is a physics-based RTS game of building, battling and causing rubble, in which players construct their base from scratch, arm it to the teeth, and blast their opponent's fort to bits. Collect resources, develop your tech-tree, unlock advanced weapons and target your opponent's weak points to feel the satisfaction as their fort comes crashing down in glorious real-time physics! Forts’ audio director, Jeff van Dyck, is a two-time BAFTA award winner whose resume cites the biggest franchises in gaming including FIFA, NHL and Need for Speed.

Developer: Ninja Thumbs
Location: Auckland, New Zealand

Grabity is a physics-based, arena brawler where 2-4 players wield grab guns to turn objects into lethal projectiles or makeshift shields. Twin-stick twitch reflexes combine with tactical thinking in this side-on, 2.5D grab ’em up – best enjoyed with friends couch-style for maximum trash-talk and combat shenanigans!

Developer: Shadowplay Studios
Location: Sydney, Australia

Projection is a 2D shadow puppet adventure about light manipulation, curiosity and lost art. When the world is made of shadows, the one who can control the light can control the world. The themes of the game are closely related with popular tales from Indonesia, China, Turkey, Greece, and England.

Sky Noon
Developer: Lunar Rooster
Location: Auckland, New Zealand

Sky Noon is a multiplayer first-person shooter set in an alternate Wild West, where Smash Brothers inspired push and pull combat takes place on floating islands. Players are equipped with a grappling hook, a lasso, an arsenal of weapons and abilities. There is no health in Sky Noon, instead players need to outflank and outplay their opponents to knock them off the ‘Floating Frontier’, an alternate Western world in the clouds!

The Gardens Between
Developer: The Voxel Agents
Location: Melbourne, Australia

The Gardens Between is a surreal puzzle adventure that follows best friends, Arina and Frendt, as they fall into a mysterious world of beautiful garden islands. The player can traverse back and forwards in time to discover each garden’s secrets and, along the way, reveal a story about friendship, childhood and growing up.

Virtually Impossible
Developer: Growl Interactive
Location: Richmond, Australia

The Impossible VR Party Game. Challenge your friends to a marathon of ridiculous challenges. Deceivingly simple, hilarious for players and sure to bring the room to its feet. Who will go the furthest? Players will compete in a kart race to achieve the furthest distance. But beware, in order to advance you will have to overcome impossible challenges.

PAX Australia 2017, will be taking place October 27-29 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
