What are you doing this evening — hunkering down with a packet of Burger Rings and My Kitchen Rules? How about you ditch that and head down to Federation Square in Melbourne. There’s only going to be a delightful evening of top notch indie games being played on a massive outdoor screen!
For 6-9pm tonight, and every other Wednesday until February 27, Federation Square is playing host to Indie Allsorts, a celebration of indie gaming on a large scale. It’s all part of the lead up to this year’s Freeplay, an event now being put together by co-directors Harry Lee and Katie Williams.
Those names may be familiar to a few of you. Katie Williams has contributed to Kotaku Australia on more than a few occasions, and we profiled Harry Lee and his great work late last year. Indie Allsorts is one of the first initiatives being launch under their tenure, and I think it’s a pretty swell idea.
The following games will be available to play…
Nidhogg by Mark Essen
Pole Riders by Bennett Foddy
Ninja, a folk game
Canabalt by Adam Saltsman
Ski Safari by Defiant Development
Lemon Jousting by Coney
Super Crate Box by Vlambeer
Forget-Me-Not by Nyarlu Labs
Snapture by PlayReactive
Crayon Physics Deluxe by Petri Purho
Little Things Forever by Matthew Hall
Bocce Drift by David Jimison and Jeff Crouse
Thomas Was Alone by Mike Bithell
Cumulo Nimblers by Farbs
Gargoyles by Jaime Woo
A pretty stellar line-up. If you live in Melbourne, I strongly recommend checking it out!
