Well, not quite. But if you are lucky enough to live in Nottingham, or can travel that way, the next GameCity Nights event will be headlined by Beatnik Games, creators of the manic online game, Plain Sight.
This latest after dark event by GameCity will take place on 28th April at the Antenna Bar in Nottingham, from 7.30pm until late. Robin Lacey, of Beatnik Games, will be in attendance, showcasing Plain Sight and explaining why Suicidal Ninja Robots are the way to go. He will be joined by a few other Indie developers there, showing off their latest games. Of course, the quizzes, good food and fun will be in abundance aswell.
GameCity Director Iain Simons said, â€œWe’re delighted with the success of the GameCityNights series so far. Who’d have thought back in February we’d have been able to deliver three of these without falling into a slow decline in quality. In fact, they seem to be becoming more and more awesome – we can’t quite understand it.â€
Robin Lacey, Beatnik Games’ MD commented, â€œI’m hugely excited to be able to make the trip to Nottingham and add some Beatnik magic to this relentless series of events. With the election fast-approaching, I’m hoping we can address some real issues on the night and demonstrate how exploding robots can hint toward a new kind of progressive politics.â€
This will be the third after dark event from the GameCity team, with a view to continuing these events on the last Thursday of each month at the Antenna Bar. Aside from the GameCity Nights events, the team are also responsible for other public events, including the first UK public Alan Wake event, taking place on April 24th as part of ScreenLit: Festival of Film, TV and Writing at Nottingham Broadway. Attendees will have the chance to hear Sam Lake, lead writer of Alan Wake, discuss the game.
