We are throwing the biggest indie game party DC has ever seen. Join Ska-Studios, and Dejobaan Games for this awesome one night event!
Hello there Kickstarter, I'm Jacob Clark. All the way back in June of 2011, I founded Gaming In Public. My goal is to bring video games back to their social roots. To do this I organize gamers who meet at public venues. A few missteps in the beginning and a wayward walrus initially threw me off my goal, but the concept was destined for success. Now Gaming in Public is one of the greatest Meetups ever!
At the start of 2012 I got an idea. Why don't we promote indie games! Instead of Gaming in Public just being a group for gamers, it became a group for developers as well. Now indie developers could reach their audience without the large costs of going to a convention. At times it can seem virtually impossible to market a game over the internet. How do you compete with a million voices trying to grab your attention? Gaming In Public provides a one- on-one connection between developer and gamer. This keeps the focus on gaming as a fun and social activity.
We are almost at the one year anniversary mark for Gaming In Public. To date we have already hosted some of the biggest indie game developers: Final Form Games; Owlchemy Labs; Klei Entertainment; Crankshaft Games; and Fun Infused Games. Where do we go from here? Only one way to go.
This is not just any party. This is going to be the biggest indie game party DC has ever seen! Come out and see games before they even come out! You will get to see and play Charlie Murder and Drunken Robot Pornography -- a whole night of gaming and partying with Ska Studios and Dejobaan Games.
Where will it be? At McFadden's, August 11th from 5pm-1am. The location could not be better. It is right by the Foggy Bottom Metro Station in DC. No need for a car when you can take the subway right in! If we don't make our goal, we won't be able to hold onto this great space. We'll be left with a bill that will literally cost an arm and a leg!
Not enough for you? We are getting a band to close out the event. Still not enough for you? Well we are documenting the whole thing! Watch the crazy ups and downs of setting up this amazing event. Will we fall on our faces or fly sky high? Watch as it all unfolds or unravels in our Nation's Capital.
The money we raise helps us secure McFadden's for The Party in August and helps us promote the event as well. The more money we raise means the bigger the event can be! It could mean having more developers, but that's all up to you!
$3,000 is the bare minimum we need to get this party started! With your help DC can become a destination for indie game developers to showcase their creations. Anyway you slice it, gamers just want to have some fun!
Check out the cool rewards we have for you indie game lovers! Get a copy of the documentary, a ticket, or even a one of a kind dinner with the developers night before! Donate even more money? Then why not go for broke and get your own party featuring a surprise indie developer!
