Empire State Of Mind: Babycastles Kickstarter
There's a lot of kickstarter projects around, but this is one which I think some of you will find interesting. Hell, even the people who will bristle against it. Babycastles is a NYC-based indie-arcade project, and have been doing events for a while. What do they want to do with the money? Take it to central NY: "By presenting six consecutive 2-week exhibitions of independent video games at the center of New York, Babycastles is looking forward to showcasing international game development to a wide audience of game enthusiasts, students, press, curators, children, and especially to an audience that may never otherwise encounter the variety of activity in video game culture. It will be an incredible arcade in Times Square!" Go to their kickstarter for more details on what they've been up to, some footage and the benefits for pledging. Oh - and here's the LA Times covering it. Really, this is like a transmission from another gaming dimension. I hope they pull it off, not least because I'm in NY then so will be able to go.
