LA Game Space to unite art and research under one roof


10:00 PM on 11.08.2012



The goal of the Attract Mode gaming collective is to spread videogame culture and awareness by selling handmade gear, hosting art galleries / festivals, and other such events. Two key members of the group -- Attract Mode co-founder Adam Robezzoli and artist Daniel Rehn -- have worked for three years on an ambitious new venture in the hopes of containing every facet of game development, study, and celebration in a single location.

That idea is LA Game Space, a non-profit center for art, design, and research in the Arts District of Los Angeles, California. It'll provide space for artist residencies, opportunities for indie devs to collaborate on new software; art galleries; game research labs, home for experimental projects from face tracking to unique hardware interfaces and beyond; and live speakers and workshops.

Through December 7, Adam and Daniel are running a Kickstarter to raise $250,000, which will go towards setting up events for the first year of operation. Afterwards, they hope to support the center through public funding, memberships, and fundraisers. For you support, you can score a 30-game indie bundle, original music, a year-long LA Game Space membership, and pixel portraits of your lovely mug by famous pixel artists like Paul Robertson, Derek Yu, and Vic Nguyen. Hell, if you are crazy enough to donate five grand, Gaijin Games will turn you into a playable character in Runner2!

I can't even begin to fathom the scope of what Adam and Daniel hope to accomplish. There really isn't anything else like it. I would be super excited if LA Game Space becomes the success it has the potential to be. Make it happen, people!

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
