Announcing: Twofivesix! A one-day conference celebrating play as culture

Dear Kill Screen Eventgoers,

For the last couple months, we've been working on a new Kickstarter project, and now we can finally announce it.

When we started Kill Screen, we wanted to show the world why games matter. We think an integral part of this story lies at the intersection between videogames and the rest of the world. Games are a lens to view life in a new and fantastic way. We believe games have a lot to teach culture and culture has a lot to teach games.

We've worked with game designers in the past, but we thought, what better way to nurture cross-pollination than to bring some of the brightest gaming minds and sharpest folks from outside games into the same room?

We're calling it Twofivesix. It's our first ever videogame arts + culture conference.

If you've ever read our vision statement, you'll find that we've spent a lot of time thinking about how games fit into the world. We believe that games are an amazing place for exploration, entertainment, and education and this conference is a natural outgrowth of that philosophy.

We've lined up an amazing day of speakers and we can't wait to see you there. You can buy tickets, back our project for other great rewards (including games!), and see more info here!

Sincerely,
Kill Screen

(PS - our apologies if you've backed more than one of our Kickstarter projects and receive this announcement more than once!)
