Pixel Punks - a showcase of deranged DIY games.

Molleindustria (Paolo Pedercini), Caitlin Boyle, Tim Sherman, and Tenley Schmida (aka Crushed Screen Collective) put an exhibition of indie/DIY games together.

7 Feb 2014 - Pittsburgh, PA, USA

From Molleindustria’s blog post:

Pixel Punks showcases rough around the edge, confrontational, homemade games in the context of an historical punk venue in Pittsburgh, PA. It’s in part inspired by new arcade experiences like BabyCastles circa 2010, and in part a response to the museification/institutionalization of artsy videogames.

“Arcades are not dead! Skip school and waste your time at Pixel Punks, a showcase of deranged independent games. In the depths of the Internet a brave new movement of DIY game makers is producing rough, cheap, and brilliant digital entertainment. Their budget is zero. Their deadlines are whenever they want. Their games are fast and direct like a three-chord-song or visceral and political like a photocopied zine. Pixel Punks is an homage and a gateway drug to this exciting phenomenon.”
