Pop-up indie arcades, game festivals and local multiplayer meetups are happening all across the world. Even though online play is omnipresent, the organizers prioritize the social situation that is created when players and spectators are all gathered in the same space. During the session, the speakers will present their experiences of the past years as organizers, as well as participants, of this local and global movement. They will discuss everything from the dirty details of how to put together a DIY arcade machine without a budget to their view on the impact of these events on game and play culture.

Takeaway

Attendees will receive an overview of how indie arcade events have become part of game culture in Europe. They will get new insights into how this culture is working to bring games to a wider audience, as well as into social spaces.

Intended Audience

People who are curious about the history, preparation and behind-the-scenes of indie arcades and local multiplayer events. People with an interest in exhibiting their games or hosting their own exhibitions. And of course, anybody who wants to celebrate local multiplayer culture with us!
