The PAX Rising Showcase sponsored by Kickstarter, is an intensely curated collection of games selected by the PAX Team and highlighted on the show floor. If a game is part of the Rising Showcase, it's because we believe the title stands out from the crowd in gameplay, entertainment, or inventiveness; regardless of which genres you favor.

Kickstarter is proud to sponsor PAX Rising and to have helped curate the incredible collection of independent games you’ll be able to experience as part of the PAX Rising Showcase. On Kickstarter and at PAX, we see that so many of the most adventurous new ideas in gaming come from creators who are working outside of the traditional industry. To discover more projects forging the future of gameplay—or to launch your own—visit Kickstarter.
