Radius Indie Game Festival Starts This Week

By Keza MacDonald on at

London's first ever Radius Festival is starting this Thursday - it's a combination of live streaming event and indie game showcase, based in the White Space Venue near Leicester Square in London. It'll run over three days, 19th-21st June.

Games on show range from Mike Bithell's Volume to Stronghold Crusader 2, Friendship Club and GANG BEASTS. If you haven't played Gang Beasts yet, you definitely should.

It's like E3, but for games that will actually be out soon.

Tickets are totally free, or you can buy a £15 supporter ticket that nets you a drink and two games. The official website with the full line-up can be found right here. If you can't make it, the evening show will be streaming live on Twitch, featuring interviews with the featured developers and live gameplay.

They'll also apparently have something called a Minecraft Cocktail Bot, which is a PC that dispenses drinks based on the blocks you place on a sacrificial altar in Minecraft. Now that I want to see.
