Yam Yam: Puzzle Guardians

A quick note to let you all know about the release of London Indies regular, Shaz Yousaf’s new game Yam Yam: Puzzle Guardians. It’s a puzzle game, as the name implies, and is available for iPhone, Android and Kindle Fire devices.

If you’re a London game developer and would like to spread the word about your game on londonindies.com then email me. Bribes not necessary.

Bit of Alright, Wild Rumpus and GameCamp

London has a bunch of treats lined up for you this weekend and next. Treats moulded in the shape of Bit of Alright, Wild Rumpus and GameCamp.

This Friday, May 10th will see Bit of Alright, the games and play non-conference, return to London. From 12 till 5 you can listen to talks, play games, and be part of experimental art pieces. The line up is a great ensemble of local game developers, event organisers, artists, musicians and all the rest. Tickets are currently £32 and available from Eventbrite.

Saturday 11th brings the lively and unquestionable Wild Rumpus to our doorstep. Taking place on the same boat as Bit of Alright (yes lets get out on that river people!) and running from 7 to 11.30, a grand old line up of games, drinks and DJ’s will help you party the night through. Featuring Chipzel (of Super Hexagon soundtrack fame) on the beats, and a selection of games including Samurai Gunn (I absolutely love this game), Nidhogg and the UK debut of Tenya Wanya Teens, from Katamari Damacy developer Keita Takahashi. Tickets are a juicy £10, but get yours in advance to avoid disappointment.

Lastly GameGamp 6 is on the following weekend, Saturday May 18th. This was one of my favourite games events, the past couple years it’s been on. It’s run at London’s South Bank University and is an Unconference. This means there is no set agenda of talks but anyone can turn up and put their name on a board to talk about something they’re interested in. Inevitably it’s a bit of a mixed bag, but there are always some really interesting discussions going on, and because of the format, no one is afraid to speak up and interrupt a dull speaker, or to walk out on a particularly bad one. Tickets are a snappy £10, from Eventbrite.
