The NEXT Exhibit has revealed an incredible line-up of creative titles being shown at the first ever NEXT Exhibition at PAX Aus 2018.
After receiving close to one hundred applications, it had to have been no small feat to decide on who to showcase at the inaugural NEXT Exhibition.
“Ultimately, only six games could make it through and we feel that the final selection reflects the spirit of the many powerful, inventive, thoughtful and charming games and creators that NEXT seeks to highlight.”
