Free Lives (creators of Broforce, Genital Jousting and Gorn VR) has put together a unique three-day indie gaming festival called Playtopia. Taking place in the oldest building in South Africa, The Castle of Good Hope, the event is a “collision of past and future” that hopes to put the spotlight on South African indie game creators.

Taking place from 30 November – 2 December 2018, attendees will be able to “enjoy a three-day marathon of music and experiential exhibitions by some of South Africa’s top interactive artists, as well as the international exhibition ‘Digital Gardens’ created by A MAZE./Berlin”. Better still, the festival will offer more than thirty in-depth looks at alternative indie games. Attendees will also get to experience a “Super Friendship Arcade room with games played on custom controllers”, as well as VR rooms, access to a beer garden and food trucks; and even a promisingly long lineup of electronic music artists such as HAEZER, DJ INVIZIBLE, ANG and Uppercut. It sounds like an event that should not be missed, which is why we are giving away two weekend passes!
