PAX East 2014: Roundabout (No Goblin)

Spring has arrived, and with that, another PAX East has sprung up, inviting gamers and game developers from all over the world to Boston, all to show upcoming games and revel in what the industry has in store.  We at Third Rate Minion were there, and we got to try out a sampling of what was there on the showfloor!


Sure, the Indie Megabooth was full of solid Indie games, but if you looked a bit further around the showfloor you would have found equally entertaining Indie games, such as the crazy game Roundabout from developer No Goblin.  We were not able to play the game at the show due to time constraints, but we got a large gameplay video with some audio Q and A with Director Dan Teasdale for you to watch!

Roundabout takes place in 1977 and follows the rise of Georgio Manos, the world's best revolving chauffeur.  The game plays much like a combination of Crazy Taxi and the Japanese/European Nintendo puzzle game Kuru Kuru Kururin.  Players control a spinning limo from destination to destination across an open-world, racking up points and trying to gain pedigree around the world for being the best, all while trying not to crash it among the many obstacles throughout the city.  Throughout the adventure, the game shows humorous live-actions sequences which tell a love story among the people in the city of Roundabout.  If that sounds odd, it probably is, but the game is also looking to be loads of fun, too!

You can find out more and pre-order at Roundabout's official website!
