    Following our successful kickstarter fundraising, my friends and I are finally opening our pop-up indie arcade and gallery in Manhattan! If you're going to be in town for NYCC, drop by and check us out. I'm really happy with how it all came together.

    Our Grand Opening is Friday night (the 8th) from 7pm-11pm, but the arcade will be open 7 days a week until the end of December, with the exhibition changing every 2 weeks or so.

    I so wish I was there! Have fun, everyone. :)

    I want to play multiplayer Nidddhog housed in an arcade cabinet quite a bit, by the way.

    The BBC did a story on a game jam that I ran at our Williamsburg arcade/gallery/performance space, Future Babycastles, located at 285 Kent Ave.

    There are going to be shows at 285 Kent Ave. every night this week, Thursday through Sunday, as part of the Northside Festival here in Brooklyn. It would be great to see any Whitechaplains that can make it out!

    That ain't bad bar territory, neither.

    Oh, wow--I'd wanted to go to Babycastles for some time now, since I saw a story on it on...I think it must have been G4. One more reason to get back to NYC.
