The Death By Audio Arcade is a series of local multiplayer arcade cabinets produced by local indie game developers that originate from Death By Audio, Brooklyn's influential DIY music venue.

Now Featuring...


DBAA has teamed up with The Sheep's Meow to put on a month-long gallery at Elsewhere, the new arts space in Bushwick from the team behind the former Williamsburg space Glasslands Gallery.

The Skybridge at Elsewhere is a built-in floating project space open during the day for viewing hours. By purchasing a Death By Audio Arcade membership, you can receive up to 50% off on these events (while helping support NYC's indie gaming community!) Stay tuned for more announcements on happy hour events throughout the month by following @DBAArcade on Twitter!


We're inviting players & local devs working on local multiplayer or short-form games for a demo night at Cloud City in Brooklyn!

The event will cost $5 for attendees. You can pay at the door or become a DBAA member on Friends.

Upcoming Games + Events


VOLLEYGON is a raucous 2-on-2 anti-gravity showdown where geometric shapes flying through space take center stage! Utilize the ceiling and floor to bounce, lob, and smash the ball into your opponent's zone! Just be careful as the ball can change gravity on a whim, and so can your opponents!


DRINK RINK is a bar. No, it's a game. No wait, you play the game with your drink? On top of the bar? Sounds potentially dangerous.
