Noted indie game godfather, Independant Games Festival Chairman, and culture maven Brandon Boyer will be at la Gaîté lyrique's Espace Jeux Video from August 7 til 12 (closing day of Joue le jeu), to share a selection of games and artwork inspired by his new game culture web site, Venus Patrol. Come see 6 awesome games, 3 of which are unplayable elsewhere (Capsule, Gun Godz, Faraway), and 1 of which will be brand-spankin' new (SoundShapes). Don't miss the display window of one-of-a-kind game/pop culture ephemera. Game makers are welcome to bring their latest projects to demo - perhaps even earn a shout-out in the soon-to-be-launched indie game uber-source Venus Patrol!
Brandon‘s life has seen him acting as artist, programmer, and indie record label head, as well as writer, columnist and editor for outlets like Edge magazine, Gamasutra, Offworld and Boing Boing. He currently serves as Chairman of the Independent Games Festival, the world’s largest and most influential yearly showcase of indie games, and is founder and editor of Venus Patrol, a website created to celebrate the intersection of art, music, and videogame culture.
During the opening hours of la Gaîté lyrique.
