4d ago - Spry Fox CEO David Edery announced today that Road Not Taken is playable at PAX East this year.

Below are the details, to quote: (This post is about Road Not Taken, Spry Fox's upcoming roguelike for the PS4 & PS Vita. If this is your first time hearing about RNT, check out our trailers here!)

PAX East is nearly upon us! We will be there, and for the first time ever, be making a playable demo of Road Not Taken publicly available for all to enjoy!

This may have triggered a wee bit of panic in our studio.

Suddenly, all the little bugs we've been ignoring demand attention. That crash that occasionally happens during the first mission? Must-fix! Slow loading times? Speed those suckers up!

Aside from fixing a boatload of bugs, we've also been spending a lot of time tweaking the first mission of the game, since that's what most people will experience at PAX.

Initially, we didn't worry about it much. After all, we have a tutorial that we've revised at least a dozen times. The first mission just has to be "relatively easy" and all will be well, right? Nope.

While the core mechanic of Road Not Taken is relatively simple, there are dozens of unusual objects and creatures you encounter in...

This week at PAX East in Boston, several of us from Supergiant will be taking a short break from development to show you some of our latest progress. We'll have a near-final build of the game running on PS4, which you'll be able to get your hands on at our booth (#892). It was one year ago at PAX East that we showed Transistor for the first time!

We'll have more details about Transistor in the days leading up to our launch next month. Until then, here are some quick facts we wanted to share - stay tuned for...
