DBAA RETURNS TO LWLVL! ///

The lwlvl festival returns to NYC on August 19th and 20th, and so does Death By Audio Arcade!

We'll be boasting a burly lineup of hectic multiplayer romps including: Particle Mace, Nothing Good Can Come of This, Star Versus, Slam City Oracles, Crystal Brawl, Nest, Powerboat Italia '88 and Futbol Forever!

We'll also be debuting the DRINK RINK — it's a bar, that's a game, that's a bar, wait, what? Saddle up and use your beer as a controller for a series of games unlike any other!

Also making its first appearance at lwlvl will be VOLLEYGON. Dubbed the game of polygon volleyball, 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!

SUPER RAD RAYGUN + STEAM! ///

DBAA is excited to give a shout out to one of our members for a new publishing partnership with ScrewAttack Games for the release of Super Rad Raygun!

Chris Hernandez (Artist for Crystal Brawl) and Chris Bryant have worked together as TruFun Entertainment, and expect to launch the game this spring. Inspired by 4 color Gameboy aesthetics and classic 2d platforming mechanics, it will send players on a retro themed adventure through the 1980's, battling the Soviet Union and carrying out American foreign policy in a fun filled romp through the global conflict zones of the cold war! Fun!

Super Rad Raygun will launch on Steam this Spring for Mac and PC - follow the devs on twitter at @trufun202, or at SuperRadRaygun.com!

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.
