RPS@PAX 2022: Saturday daily round-up

Indie games galore, and hanging out with Skyrim Grandma

Day Three of PAX East 2022 is done and dusted for another year, which means it's time for another daily round-up video. We had another jam-packed schedule today, checking out Dome Keeper (formerly known as Ludum Dare darling Dome Romantik) over on the Raw Fury booth, before heading over to the PAX Rising Showcase to check out a specially curated selection of upcoming indie games. We also caught up with Larian to chat about Baldur's Gate 3 (watch out for a dedicated video coming in the next day or two), and we capped off the day by attending Shirley "Skyrim Grandma" Curry's panel over on the Bumblebee Theatre stage. I'll be writing up a separate post about this in the coming days, but needless to say, Shirley was an absolute delight.

Alas, we were hoping to bring you a dedicated PAX Rising Showcase round-up video today, but we only managed to make it half way round this morning, as there were just oodles of people on the show floor today. Saturday tickets were completley sold out this year, so we're going to have to head back tomorrow to finish things off. Still, we talk about plenty of highlights in today's round-up, including my personal highlight The Wreck (the next game from the makers of Bury Me, My Love), as well as Metroid-like Rusted Moss, musical deckbuilder Power Chords, and cyberpunk heist RPG Cyber Knights: Flash Point, which is developed by the Star Traders: Frontiers devs.

We also got to sneak up to the ludicrously high convention centre catwalks during our lunch break, giving us a bird's eye view of the show floor and all the many hundreds of people zipping between the booths. I took a couple of timelapse shots on my phone, but uploaded them too late for Liam to include in the video, so have a gander at these very short GIFs (standing still for two minutes was all I could muster up there) here instead.

Finally, we rounded out the day by attending Shirley Curry's panel about her journey with Skyrim. Despite suffering a stroke only last month, Shirley was on fine form today, showing that no arrow to the knee can stop her from being such a lovely, endearing presence. She talked about the way she created her characters, her approach to story-telling, and spent a very generous 45 minutes answering questions from the audience. There are too many gems to list here, but rest assured, I'll be writing up a full report as soon as I can.

And that about closes out our third day at PAX East 2022. We've been getting up to an awful lot over the last couple of days, so if you've missed anything, why not have a gander at our RPS@PAX tag? You'll find more daily round-ups there, plus a growing number of developer interviews, panel discussions, moments from the show floor and more. We'll be back for our final round-up video tomorrow, but fear not, the PAX goodness won't stop there. We've got plenty more up our sleeve, so stay tuned to see what's coming up.
