Hidden deep within the heart of downtown Phoenix lurks a cabal of mad thinkers, plotting to take over the world… of gaming. Their sinister plot was revealed on June 29th, when the Game CoLab hosted its first indie demo night. In the warehouse space that doubles as their secret lair, several designers demonstrated the games that they have been working on.
The evening had the feel of a warehouse party, with food, drinks, and live music by Adventureface. Of course, there was gaming everywhere you looked. People were lined up to play on the several stand-up arcade machines throughout the room. A large screen TV and comfy couch were set up in the corner for console gaming. In front of the DJ, a board game was being demonstrated by its creator to anyone who wished to learn. The heart of the party were the tables set up for the designers to show off their hard work.
Some of the games on display:
