Organizers of the Penny Arcade Expo have announced the winners of its "PAX 10" independent games showcase to be featured at the August 29-31st Expo, including Audiosurf, Schizoid, and The Maw. First announced in February, in cooperation with the DigiPen Institute of Technology, the ten top winners received four exhibitor badges and a floor kiosk to demonstrate the game at the forthcoming expo. Expo attendees will vote on the games exhibited, and will award one with the "Audience Choice Award," which will be announced on the site following the show, held at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center in Seattle. The full list of winners includes: The Amazing Brain Train by Grubby Games (puzzle/strategy) Audiosurf by Dylan Fitterer (rhythm/action) Chronotron by Scarybug Games (puzzle/platformer) Impulse by a team of Rochester Institute of Technology students (puzzle) The Maw by Twisted Pixel Games (action/adventure) Polarity by a team of Carnegie Mellon University students (platformer/puzzle) Project Aftermath by Games Faction (tactical/action) Schizoid by Torpex Games (action/strategy) Strange Attractors 2 by Ominous Development (puzzle/strategy) Sushi Bar Samurai by Molly Rocket (exploratory puzzle) Said Penny Arcade's Robert Khoo, "The variety and caliber of the titles blew us away. Narrowing down the group was a challenging process for the judges, but we're incredibly proud to have these ten games as our kickoff showcase and can't wait to see them on the show floor."
