Melon Journey: Bittersweet Memories (PC)
What power a single melon holds! When Cantaloupe goes missing, melon factory employee Honeydew ducks out of their shift at Eglantine Industries to head to Hog Town, where melons are outlawed and corruption abounds. As Honeydew’s search begins, an array of intertwining mysteries begin to unfold in the brand-new story-exploration game Melon Journey: Bittersweet Memories by indie developer Froach Club. Is the Cavity Crew a true threat? Is Kitten King the cause of all this? Honeydew will need to comb every inch of the green-tinted pixelated world, their every step accompanied by the beats of the jazzy lo-fi soundtrack, to save the day in this monochromatic mystery set for a 2022 launch.
The inventive management simulation game / deckbuilder from indie developer Voracious Games, Potionomics, makes its playable debut at PAX East. Attendees can test their entrepreneurial mettle in this charming adventure and face off against bargain-hungry customers by deploying sales tactics as cards from a deck. As the young witch Sylvia, you’ll learn to balance the delicate art of potion brewing with the nuances of salesmanship to keep your late uncle’s business running on the fantastical island of Rafta. Potionomics is targeting a fall 2022 launch on Windows PC.
