While I’ll obviously be making my way to Giant Robot/Attract Mode’s art and indie game exhibit Game Over/Continue? and the usual lineup of games industry parties, the other GDC-week event I’m most looking forward to is DUTYCYCLE II, a San Francisco showcase of chiptune artists set to take place Saturday, March 28th at the Space Gallery SF.
The DUTYCYCLE folks have also just written in to let me know that they’ve just released a free EP of the artists performing that night, which is as diverse as you’d want it to be, running the gamut from ambient bleeps to hip-hop blips.
The DUTYCYCLE site has more information on the show, which starts at 8pm at Space Gallery’s 1141 Polk St. location, and the above video offers a recap of their last show. If you’ve seen Reformat the Planet, you’ll immediately recognize the shirtless antics of now SF-based Starpause.
