Session Name Pop-Up Arcade: Postmortems on Indie Arcades and Events
Speaker(s) Zuraida Buter, Marie Foulston, Jonatan Van Hove
Company Name(s) Zo-ii, Wild Rumpus, Glitchnap
Track / Format Independent Games Summit
Overview 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.
