I am so disappointed I won’t be in Los Angeles this week for E3. Not because of the show, but because of this Future Crew party — with proceeds benefiting our friends at LA Game Space.
ALL AGES! OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! Proceeds Benefit LA Game Space!
DJ sets by DAEDELUS × CHROME CANYON × ARCANE KIDS × GRIMECRAFT • Performance by DOSEONE • Visuals by Sam Newell × Johnny Woods × Daniel Rehn × Evan Shamoon

LA Game Space games available now ⊟
LA Game Space Kickstarter backers got a wonderful email last night, with a link to downloads for many of the indie games created for the campaign. They’re not all done yet, but what is done is, so far, pretty rad.
I haven’t gone through the whole set yet, but Party Time! Hexcellent!’s Electronic Sweet-N-Fun Fortune Teller, Adam Saltsman & Keita Takahashi’s ALPHABET, and Steve Swink’s Inputting are already worth the time. Those last two, along with Kieran Nolan’s Control, make an interesting group, as they all play with the idea of control schemes/keyboards in oddly literal ways.
Don’t worry, I’m not just an ass for talking about games you can’t get: LA Game Space has opened up a direct donation page, so you can get the game pack without having contributed to the Kickstarter! Well, starting tomorrow, so I guess I’m still an ass for one day.
Street Fighter dudes and meatbuns rolled into a shirt
The LA Game Space continues to trot out some ridiculous rewards for its Kickstarter — along with the 30 games you can get by chipping in just $15, you can get this shirt, a tee from Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, or other designs when you throw in some extra cash.
This shirt comes from stylish apparel shop Meatbun and the good-hearted Nina Matsumoto (yes, of Game Center CX translations fame). LA Game Space is just a few thousand bucks away from hitting its pledge goal, so do your part to fund the project and get this tee!
Why you should back LA Game Space’s Kickstarter, explained by Maré Odomo’s wonderful animated comic.
Look at Tiny’s huge muscles! We totally didn’t know he’d pop up in this comic — he just showed up on our dashboard, pumping iron and showing off his guns!
And Pushmo's Malo partnering with Katamari Damacy's Prince? Dreams come true in Maré's comics.

Kickstarter pitch for the LA Game Space, a new project proposed by Attract Mode members Adam Robezzoli and Daniel Rehn. The space is intended to host artist residencies for game creators, along with galleries, presentations, workshops, and “game research labs” for live gameplay data.
Even if you’re not in LA, there are some pretty compelling reasons to check out the Kickstarter. Rewards start (!) with a pack of 30 experimental/prototype games from well-known indies, including a new collaboration between QWOP developer Bennett Foddy and Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward; more expensive bonuses include t-shirts, prints, and, at the higher levels, and custom portraits by artists like Army of Trolls, Vic Nguyen, Adam Saltsman, and Paul Robertson!
If you kick in $5,000, you will be made into a character in Runner2. I… can’t afford that.
