Happy Holidays from Amaterasu ⊟
Capybara artist and animator Kelly Smith offers up one last holiday card from Attract Mode’s Bit Bazaar: Winter Market pack, and it’s a great Okami tribute.
Bit Bazaar: Winter Market is going on right now in Toronto! If you hurry to Bento Miso, you might still be able to make it before the event closes (7PM) and grab some of these cards! You’ll also see some killer zines, games, snacks, comics, and more.
Damnit, Snorunt ⊟
This Bit Bazaar: Winter Market holiday card comes from Kris Mukai, who makes awesome stuff on the reg, so follow her Tumblr. I want so much in this illustration: the sweater, the socks, the cookies, the hot chocolate, the Pokemon best bud.
You’ll be able to buy this along with other holiday cards from Attract Mode and Bento Miso this Saturday in Toronto — RSVP here!
Gravity Rush holiday card by Kyle Fewell ⊟
So happy to have an excuse to post some Gravity Rush/Kat art here. This is one of several holiday cards Attract Mode will be selling at the Bit Bazaar Winter Market, a “unique celebration of the art and craft of indie games, web comics, and good food,” going down at Toronto’s Bento Miso this Saturday. Why does everything awesome only happen in NYC, California, and Toronto?
Fabulous Fangamer X Attract Mode prints on sale ⊟
Remember all those great pieces we featured from last summer’s Fangamer X Attract Mode show? They’re now available to purchase online over at the Attract Mode shop! Though some of the prints are made to order, if you place your order soon, you should still be able to get them in time for Christmas in case you want to give them out as presents.
Mega Men versus Astro Boys, by Daniel Dussault
There will be some dope as fuck pieces at The Toronto Comic Arts Festival’s Comics vs Games Gallery this weekend, which will be put on by Attract Mode. This artwork will be there and available to purchase, as will contributions from Tiny Cartridge regulars Maré Odomo, Ashley Davis, Kyle Fewell, Zac Gorman, etc.

NYU Game Center X Attract Mode
If you’re in the area and into indie games, NYU Game Center will hold its 4th Annual No Quarter exhibition tonight (7PM), which features “commissioned work from established and emerging independent developers, who have all been challenged to create games for a social, gallery setting.”
It will also showcase and sell artwork from talented folks inspired by indie games, like the above Nidhogg and BaraBariBall pieces from Kyle Fewell and Hamlet Machine (the logo is from Cory Schmitz). You can RSVP here and find more info at the event’s Facebook page.

One of many wonderful pieces appearing at Attract Mode’s Comics Vs. Games 2 event at The Toronto Comic Arts Festival running from May 11 to 12.
If this cat and game systems look familiar, we featured them about a year ago with another Kyle Fewell illustration!
If you’ve been holding off on buying our DS/3DS stickers or any other fine items from Attract Mode, today’s the day to buy them because the video game culture shop is offering free shipping on everything for U.S. customers!
Fangamer is running an identical promotion — for those outside the U.S., Canadian shipping is 50 percent off, and international is 25 percent off. Orders over $50 get a free keychain, and over $100 score a $20 gift card. The shop has lots of killer new products, too, like Mare Odomo’s Venusaur shirt and Zac Gorman’s Zelda print (above).
“DS Club" by Maré Odomo, "Hero Needs a Cheer Squad" by Kari Fry, and "My Guitar is in My Mind" by Lindsey Collins. Prints of these and other pieces from the Fangamer Versus Attract Mode art show are now for sale through the Fangamer/Attract Mode store.
There’s a lot of amazing art, including pieces by Ashley Davis, Zac Gorman, Kris Mukai, and others. Some of it is probably going to end up on your wall.

"Videogame culture store" Attract Mode has evolved into “video game collective” Attract Mode, a group site featuring contributions from luminaries Adam Robezzoli, Matt Hawkins, Cory Schmitz, Maré Odomo, Daniel Rehn, Derek Yu, Tiff Chow, Steph Thirion, Paul Levering, Paul Owens, Asif Siddiky, Phil Fish, Ted Martens, Zach Gage, Evan Shamoon, Superbrothers… and us?! I think I speak for both of us when I say we’re proud and vaguely confused to be among such brilliant company.
The store is back as well, now managed by our friends at Fangamer. It features items like the Spelunky Minis (which I’ll be buying as soon as I can afford), Cory Schmitz’s Faraway t-shirt, and the DS/3DS sticker packs we produced with Maré Odomo!
For more Attract Mode-ness, check out the Fangamer Versus Attract Mode party at PAX, featuring Super Time Force!
I’ve let quite a few indie game items pile up, mostly non-Nintendo related stuff, so here’s all of them in one go!
First off, Giant Robot is hosting Game Night 8 at its L.A. location tonight, another collab with Attract Mode, Meat Bun, and other partners. The free event will feature Monaco, the much buzzed about stealth/heist multiplayer game — creator Andy Schatz and producer Andy Nguyen will be attending. Bring your 3DS for mad StreetPasses.
Christine Love has just released Analogue: Hate Story, a futuristic follow-up to Digital: A Love Story, which you may remember me raving quite a bit about. The full version is $15, but you can download a demo to get a taste of this “mystery featuring transhumanism, traditional marriage, loneliness, and cosplay.” Those of you interested in the Love Plus phenomena might appreciate this.
Friend of the site Anna “Auntie Pixelante” Anthropy has a book coming up called Rise of the Videogame Zinesters, in which she writes about “how freaks, normals, amateurs, artists, dreamers, drop-outs, queers, housewives, and people like you are taking back an art form.” Need to finish The Corner and 1Q84 by the time this is out — and half a dozen games — so I can pick it up on my Kindle day-one.
Whoa, you could totally be playing Fez tonight. It’s not impossible! You just have to… be in LA from 7-10 this evening, and attend the Game Night 7 event at the GR2 gallery/store/thing, where it’ll be projected onto a big wall outside.
You’ll also get to check out Polytron’s superHYPERCUBE (a 3D Kinect game about putting cubes into holes), get first dibs on new Meat Bun shirts, and collect hella StreetPasses from all the other people there. Basically, if you want to live my ideal life, you should be at this thing tonight.
