We JUST launched an insane new call for artists! DREAM ARCADE, our September exhibition, will feature a gallery filled with new 2d Platformers! We’ve got help from David Washington, awesome guy and amazing coder, to put together a show that pays homage to the glorious 8-bit days with true, interactive, games! Check out the call for art and the sample game HERE on the blog post, and if you’re interested in making worlds with us, sign up to participate! The Call for Art ends APRIL 23!
If you’ve ever wanted to design the characters and world for a platformer game, here’s your chance! We have been researching ways for interested artists to design the environments, the enemies, and the heroes in a new exhibition that will explode everyone’s faces with awesomeness! During the month of September we’ll transform the gallery into an actual arcade, and the walls will be lined with YOUR GAMES. All of which will be tied together by a dimension-hopping storyline!
You could make an all-slime universe, a kitten-filled candy paradise, a hamburger land with mustard waterfalls, or a barbarian’s loin-cloth dream! If you’ve ever said “I’d love to see a game where…” now’s your chance! No need to know anything about making games — if you’re a platformer fan and an artist, check out the call!
The end result will be the DREAM ARCADE, and an epic journey that pays homage to the classic games of the 8 and 16 bit generations!
Thanks and please help us spread the word to anyone that may be interested in collaborating! :)
