Good news for those across the pond, as UK supergroup Wild Rumpus have officially announced the date, time & nautical location of their next multiplayer games event.
The group will be taking to the high seas, sort of, for a party aboard the MS Stubnitz that will not only include a live set from Super Hexagon composer Chipzel, but the UK debut of Keita Takahashi’s Tenya Wanya Teens, its first appearance abroad following our GDC party & most recent JUEGOS RANCHEROS meetup.
The Rumpus is happening Saturday, May 11th, just one day after the UK indie conference Bit of Alright, which will also be aboard the Stubnitz and will include talks from Thomas Was Alone‘s Mike Bithell, Hide & Seek’s Holly Gramazio, Wild Rumpus’s own George Buckenham, writer & game designer Cara Ellison, Redshirt creator Mitu Khandaker and many more.
Tickets for the Rumpus are currently on sale via eventbrite here, just a few hops away from Bit of Alright’s own eventbrite, where you can purchase tickets for the day-long conference. More of the lineup for both events will be available soon via Wild Rumpus & Bit of Alright‘s respective sites.
Filed under “places I sort of desperately would rather be”, this Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 7:00 PM, indie game party presenters The Wild Rumpus will be bringing their latest line-up of multiplayer games to London, featuring a fantastic party/public play selection.
Included in the mix will be Mega-GIRP (above), the four-dance-mat full-body version of Foddy’s rock-climbing finger-Twister GIRP, modded by Joust creator Doug Wilson, Noah Sasso’s low-fi & high-tension sports-brawler BaraBariBall, Michael Brough’s “multiplayer album of games” Kompendium (currently available as a free download to bone up before the show), a tournament of Terry Cavanagh’s Super Hexagon for hexagonal prizes, and much more.
Tickets for the event are £5 and available here, where you can also find more information on the complete lineup. The show will be going down at Cargo, 83 Rivington Street, Shoreditch. Take lots of photos of the prizes and the seagull on a stick (??)!
