September 23rd, Warsaw, Poland.
After almost two years without the on-site industry events we all love so much, and after PAX West blazing a trail a couple of weeks ago, it’s now time for EGX London to bring us all some joy. And more importantly, the best of the best indie games, including a fine selection of titles developed by some of the most talented Polish developers.
EGX will take place from October 7th until October 10th in London, where there’ll be one zone you definitely can’t afford to miss – the EGX Razzed, packed with awesome games, among which you’ll be able to play the following (featured in alphabetical order):
Best Month Ever – A modern point-and-click story-driven adventure about Louise and her son Mitch. Life is hard for Louise as a single mom, struggling to make ends meet, but things can always get worse. After being diagnosed with a terminal illness that leaves her with one month to live, the clock is ticking to raise her son.
But how do you explain that to an 8-year-old kid? Mitch is picking up things fast – like a duckling, he observes his mother and imitates her behavior – but time is running out, and Louise has to think carefully about making the right decisions and setting a good example for Mitch to follow.
Together, they hit the road to take back the time that was stolen from them and live a lifetime as mother and son in four short weeks. This will be the first chance to play this unique game.
Children of Morta – a story-driven action RPG game about an extraordinary family of heroes, that will allow you to lead the Bergsons, with all their flaws and virtues, against the forthcoming Corruption.
