THE PRINCE OF ARCADE 2011: THE GAMES

It’s happening! It’s happening! It’s really happening!

Oh hey could you remind us what’s happening again?

Facebook event.
 

WHAT IS THIS NEW DEVILRY?

A splendourous and sibilant celebration of indie games and the arcade spirit!

We’re renting out an art gallery, hooking up the projectors, and basking in the glory of some of the most beautiful arcade-inspired indie games out there. Did we mention beer? The question is rhetorical; we didn’t! But the bar will indeed be available — and with a cold beverage in hand and the music moving our feet, we will play amazing games on amazing screens with amazing friends. (We have anecdotal evidence from last year’s event that this party will remain statistically amazing, within one standard deviation of happiness, 19 times out of 20.)

 

WHEN AND WHERE DO WE HAVE THE JOY?

November 2nd, 20h00 — November 3rd, 01h00
Eastern Bloc
7240 Clark (near De Castelnau metro, Blue line).
