PAX 10 Indie Game Competition Accepting Submissions

Penny Arcade Expo's "PAX 10" competition for independent games is now accepting submissions for display at the Seattle-area gaming event later this year.

The event is designed to highlight the efforts of indie game creators working on original, self-funded and self-published, fully playable, non-mod game projects across all platforms. The developers of the top ten games will be given four exhibitor passes each to the Penny Arcade Expo to be held September 4 to 6.

PAX, organized by popular Penny Arcade comic creators Jerry "Tycho" Holkins and Mike "Gabe" Krahulik, first featured the PAX 10 last year, with finalists whittled down from more than 80 submissions. A panel of 50 industry judges chose Twisted Pixel's The Maw as the overall champion.

Said Penny Arcade's Robert Khoo, "We were absolutely amazed by the quality and diversity of games submitted in 2008. I'm excited to see what the community of indie game devs have in store for us this year. Good luck to everyone!"

This year's Penny Arcade Expo itself will be the fifth annual event, with attendance having grown from 4,000 in 2004 to 58,500 in 2008. In 2007, it moved from Bellevue, Washington to accomodate its radid growth.

The full rules and submission guidelines for the PAX 10 are available at the expo's official site.
