Wonderful Arcade celebrates weird gaming—dancing bears, haunted NESes, and all

AUSTIN, Texas—Style-celebrating Surprising Fest may also reach wider and more bizarre than every other film competition with regards to screenings (see latest zombie-high college-Christmas musicals or 90s-Jap TV-crossover mockumentaries, as an example). And lower back in 2010, the event delivered a gaming arm.

Keep in mind that, it gets bizarre, too.

Placed on by using local self reliant gaming workforce Juegos Rancheros, Outstanding Arcade has advanced from a show off for 10-20 video games in its early days to now boasting closer to 50 show off titles from several hundred submissions.

Greater than a month after the modern day film component wrapped, indie game fans filled right into a neighborhood Alamo Drafthouse final weekend to look one of the most unique titles coming from builders in Texas and past.

While there have been a number of recognizable names on the slate (see Nidhogg II), the event is all about discovery for the informal gamer. Above, you can actually see a handful of the titles that caught our eye from an afternoon of button mashing and practise studying. And if something primarily speaks to you, comprehend that we might also have just a few observe-up gadgets in the works according to what we acquired to adventure.

For now, those all for greater facts can to find many of the developer’s commentary sessions uploaded to YouTube. Plus, the now possible 2017 Spectacular Arcade Indie Bundle incorporates Pipsqueak, The Stakes Are Too High, and Banana Chalice from the titles above for you to check ’em first-hand.
