Word on the block is that Hitcents is going on a pretty sweet field trip—to PAX East 2019! Come see us March 28th-31st in Boston at one of the largest gaming conventions in the world. We’ll be stocked up to our faces with neat goodies, as well as having NINE whole game demos for expo goers to play. So, be sure to meander by Booth #21019 (we’ve included a copy of the map below!) and check out all these awesome things. Crisp high fives and hand sanitizer will also be doled out in surplus.
Games we’re bringin’:
Ministry of Broadcast - A two-dimensional dystopian cinematic platformer mixing Orwell’s 1984 with modern reality TV. A country divided by The Wall; to cross it and reach your family, you must compete on - and win - a reality TV show broadcast by the Regime. Rife with dark humor, sarcastic quips, and a general absurdity of the system. Meet the devs while you’re at PAX! (More info below)
Shores Unknown - A turn-based tactical RPG rendered in a rich, low-poly aesthetic. Branded traitors to the land they once called home, mercenary Morten and his sister Ren embark upon a perilous odyssey for freedom. Forge alliances, wage battles, and journey beyond the seething wall of fog known only as the Murk in this decision-influenced, narrative-driven adventure. What dangers await you on Shores Unknown?
LVL99: AxeRage - A gratuitously violent 2D Action-Platformer inspired by the iconic pop culture of the 80s and 90s. Play as an axe-wielding firefighter who must face an unholy apocalyptic menagerie warring over Earth’s vital energy. With brute force, a little supernatural intervention, and a RADioactive dog, players must free Earth from unrelenting hordes of aliens, robots, and zombies, oh my. AxeRage will also offer local 2P for both the players who appreciate the comradery of a couch co-op and those who wanna battle their buddies in the Brawler VS mode.
A Robot Named Fight! - The meatiest metroidvania in town! Play as Fight, the blaster-arm totin’, meat monster explodin’, power-up loadin’ robot attempting to save the world from an exceptionally fleshy invasion. Procedurally generated labyrinths keep players on their toes as they explore and conquer this 2D platformer. Includes local 2-4 player PvP Deathmatch and assist-styled couch co-op! Meet the dev while you’re at PAX! (More info below)
Duke of Defense - A playful action-based tower defense game brimming with ample humor, cheeky villagers, egotistical wizards, and jaunty adventure. Roll, slash, and build your way through waves upon waves of goblins, ogres, golems and more! New strategies can be explored and even more mischief managed when you game alongside a friend with local co-op. Meet the devs while you’re at PAX! (More info below)
Sundown Refusal- A shadowy action platformer telling the story of an eternal war between the Sun and the Moon. In a world driven mad by the unending light of a Sun that refused to set, play as the world’s final chance for salvation: the last Spirit of Darkness, created by the Moon to seek a way to restore balance to the celestial cycles. Gorgeous, dramatic tones paint your gameplay experience as you explore the Sun-maddened lands.
Get to the Orange Door - a parkour-heavy run-and-gun FPS platformer where the levels are rendered in the vivid neon and chrome retro-futuristic aesthetic of the 80s. Wall run, slide, and dash your way fluidly across obstacles, while using a creative arsenal of weaponry to mow down baddies. Above all else, never forget your main objective: Get to the Orange Door. Meet the dev while you’re at PAX! (More info below)
RASHLANDER - A lunar lander roguelike that feels like spinning across an icy road and nailing a perfect parallel park. Slingshot around levels while avoiding interstellar debris, gravitational pulls, and other spacey surprises. Discover a dense network of game-changing upgrade systems and life-giving fuel stations—all while attempting to achieve the highest score in this skill-based, physics-loaded ode-to-arcades. Meet the dev while you’re at PAX! (More info below)
Forgotton Anne - An award-winning 2D cinematic adventure set in the hauntingly beautiful landscapes of the Forgotten Lands, a magical realm where all things lost and forgotten go. Play as Anne, the Enforcer tasked with keeping order among the Forgotlings—creatures formed from all these mislaid things. At the behest of Master Bonku, Anne sets out to quell a Forgotling rebellion that threatens the only chance her and Bonku might ever have at returning to the human world. As Anne delves ever deeper into this emotionally riveting quest, she discovers that there is always another side to the story.
