PAX East 2020 is about to start, and it will bring a host of interesting indie and AAA games. These are some of the more imaginative and exciting titles you should be checking out.
It may look cute and harmless, but Fall Guys will take you through a lethal course and challenge your survival and racing skills. Dirty moves, like shoving and pushing are allowed, even encouraged, as you move towards victory in this atypical Battle Royale. As the rounds progress, the colorful herd gets thinner and thinner, until there is only one guy left standing. Will it be you?

Going under is a completely unique roguelike RPG/action game set in a wacky, cartoonish world. You play as a monster-hunter Jackie, and your goal is to clear out various goblins and other monsters that chill out in the premises of failed business ventures. Yup, you read that correctly. As the game progresses, you will incorporate various weapons like hi-tech drones, brooms, and avocado toasts, along with numerous skills. The game just brims with humor and personality, so make sure to try it out at PAX East 2020.

Next, we have a stylish turn-based horror RPG. In Othercide, you will be controlling a team of Daughters as they traverse the bleak world filled with demons. Furthermore, by defeating them, you will get their memories, which will slowly start to shape up a story. Expect an atmospheric and dark game that will test your strategic abilities.
Recompile is an action-adventure indie game from Phigames. You play as an AI that suddenly became sentient and tries to escape its own death. As you are running away from your maker, you will also be unlocking numerous skills that will help you manipulate the environment and enemies. Devs said that the gameplay will rely on your choices, which will add to the replay value.
Fans of the survival horror genre shouldn't miss this promising title made by FOTONICA. In Saturnalia, you will be switching between numerous protagonists, all of which are only armed with matches. If you die, you will immediately move to another character in your small crew, all in an effort to escape a small ritualistic village. The devs promise a gripping atmosphere that will hardly left us even when we stop playing.
If you've ever wondered what hi-tech aerial combat with falcons would look like (and let's be honest, who didn't), you've come to the right place. Tomas Sala, the game creator, lets you play as a pilot of one of these magnificent birds, caught in the war between various factions. The Falconeer takes place in an open and dark futuristic world. Judging by the trailer, we are in for quite a treat.
