The NEXT Exhibit Is Back At PAX Australia This Year

What’s NEXT for PAX Aus?

PAX Australia has always been a great place for indie developers to connect with the gaming community and showcase their talent and their projects on the show floor. As wonderful as it is to see so much local talent put on display, and so much of it with the financial backing that it deserves, it was equally nice last year to see some more underrepresented content given the chance to shine with the NEXT Exhibit.

Spearheaded by The Working Lunch Collective and supported this year by Unreal Engine and Wargaming Sydney, NEXT Exhibit aims to showcase four titles and their developers through both playable demos and extensive behind the scenes material. This year’s theme is “Made By Hand”, and the four games on show are:

  • Unpacking – Witch Beam
  • Best Friend Forever – Starcolt
  • Continental Drift – Haraiva
  • Dollhouse – Olivia Haines

CEO of The Working Lunch Ally McLean says, “I’m so happy that we have the opportunity to bring NEXT Exhibit back in a totally new way to PAX Aus. We’re bringing all of the chill living room vibes of our 2018 space along with a totally new approach to exploring the stories behind these beautiful homegrown games. I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got in store.” (As quoted by InGames)
