At PAX East in Boston, the company has a tiny station next to its giant Final Fantasy XIV showcase where someone will use your original email or other info to try and perform some internet archeology.

And they say couch co-op is dead. Enter the Gungeon came out back in 2016, but its developers at Dodge Roll keep finding reasons to bring it back to PAX East. Of course, even back then it had local co-op, before getting ported to Switch made that sort of thing cool again.

PAX East has begun and Kotaku is here to check out the giant selection of indie games present and the best convention snack spread on the East coast. If you spot us (me) give a shout!

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds stations dominate the Xbox booth at PAX East.

The most topiary-packed booth at PAX East hosts Deathgarden, Behavior Interactive’s newly announced multiplayer action blood sport game. The greenery of this garden is not alive. It never was. Plasticgarden.
