Indie games? Check. World class DJ's? Check. A night of unforgettable entertainment celebrating NYC's vibrant indie game community.
What do you think of when you think of New York City? The Empire State Building? Bagels? Lou Reed? The 2012 Super Bowl Champions? We here at Kill Screen love all of the aforementioned things. Until recently, you probably wouldn't have said great game design. Fortunately, like the era when you feared for your life in Times Square after 6 PM, those days are over!
We've teamed up with game designer and new media artist, Matt Parker, who is curating the evening's game showcase, featuring some of the best games New York City has to offer for your enjoyment.
And if that's not all, we're bringing in a pair of truly world-class DJ's to ensure that it's a night to remember.
The party goes down Thursday, March 8, 2012.
LOCATION: Public Works, an art and event space at 161 Erie St. on the edge of the Mission District in San Francisco.
PRICE: Early bird tickets are $10 (or pledge more for prizes!) - order right here on Kickstarter. Note: you do NOT have to be registered for GDC to attend!

PRIZE PICK UP: This one's important: all prizes are to be picked up the night of the event. If for some reason you are unable to attend, contact us and we would be happy to work out a shipping arrangement for you, but it will be at your expense.

Nope! We'll have a list at the door. However if your Kickstarter id isn't your real name expect an e-mail from us in the next few days so we can get your actual name on the list!
A very limited number of $20 tickets MAY be available at the door at the venue's discretion, based upon capacity. Only Kickstarter backers are guaranteed entry.
Alternately, why not volunteer? We need a few folks to help distribute prizes to backers and also to stand with the games, show folks how to play, and encourage people to have fun. Volunteers will be asked to work either 8-10 or 10-12, and would get to enjoy the party for free!
