Howdy,

Let’s play some Games Y’all!

Games Y’all is a casual meetup hosted by Fantastic Arcade for indie devs, digital artists, and games fans. Come play games, hang out, meet friends, and learn how to share your work at future meetups.

We’ll have multiplayer games, solo games, an experimental soda bar (with beer!), assorted candies, prizes and surprises. All guests will be asked to share a vaccination card or negative COVID test (from the last 2 days) at the door.

Fantastic Arcade Presents the first ever Games Y'all!

Johann Sebastian Joust

J.S.Joust is a no-graphics, digitally-enabled playground game designed for motion controllers. The goal is to be the last player remaining. When the music - J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concertos - plays in slow-motion, the controllers are very sensitive to movement. When the music speeds up, the threshold becomes less strict, giving the players a small window to dash at their opponents.

Nidhogg

Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks.
