An indie games party in SF in honor of the wondrous work of Scandinavia? Yes, please. Free beer + Aquavit, a Swedish DJ, and much more.

About this project



We here at Kill Screen love Scandinavia. So we thought, why not show our love by throwing a party for the object of our affection? We teamed up with the fine folks at the Copenhagen Game Collective, who are curating the night. Free booze, indie games, music, mirth, and a lot of tall, beautiful, blond-haired people.

The party goes down Thursday, March 3, 2011.

LOCATION: Ohio Design, a furniture design company/warehouse in the Mission, San Francisco.

TIME: 8pm-midnight

PRICE: Tickets are $15 (or pledge more for prizes!) - order right here on Kickstarter. Note: you do NOT have to be registered for GDC to attend!

DRINKS: There will be an open bar provided by our friends at Pabst Blue Ribbon as well as Aquavit per Danish tradition. This is a 21+ event so please bring your ID.

DRESS: Um, stripes? Extra points if you bring a Fjällräven backpack.

MUSIC: A DJ set by the lovely Victoria Bergsman, formerly of the Concretes and now of her own project, Taken by Trees.

LIMBO (2008 vertical slice)

From the folks at Playdead: "Back in 2008 we finished this vertical slice as part of a long proof-of-concept period and hunting for an investor. In this early prototype, we'll show where Limbo originated from. You'll experience the game's environments, puzzles, sound design, and protagonist in a shape almost no one has experience before. This will hopefully help explain why Limbo has been in the works for so long, as we've been cutting content since day one. We're looking forward to showing it to you, seeing you play, and having a beer with you."

B.U.T.T.O.N. (Babycastles remix)

Sure, you're supposed to race to your controller... but what happens when your controller becomes a live dancing cyborg?! Just hope they don't start running away from you... Photo courtesy John Shedletsky.

Monkey See, Monkey Mime

Judged by their wiimote's accelerometer, three players compete to mimic a fourth player. Act like a monkey, watch the conductor carefully, and be the first to mutate your avatar through the well-trodden path of human evolution - from primate to caveman to modern mime! Photo by Gyrithe Lemche

Where is My Heart?

The core mechanic of Where is My Heart? is the Comic Panel Effect. How can this mechanic be described? Imagine a 2D platformer with three monsters. The player can switch between them and work her way through the world to find a way home. Easy enough, right? Now imagine the game world was cut up into little square pieces. These pieces are shuffled like cards and thrown back onto the screen. Disorienting? That’s the Comic Panel Effect. It’s a challenge to play, because the player has to figure out where the monsters are located.

333OBELISK (Shot Shot Shoot, Japanese version)

Exclusive Japanese edition of Erik Svedäng's IGF-nominated two-player iPad game, Shot Shot Shoot. Made in collaboration with electronic musician Triobelisk.


Fresh off Tikkiit, their recent collaboration at the Nordic Game Jam 2011, Swedish indie stalwart Nicklas "Nifflas" Nygren and CPH-based visual artist Steffi Degiorgio present an all-new, top-secret four-player party game.
