WHAT: Join is a one day event about local multiplayer video games, or “games that can be played by two or more people in the same physical location”. Think old classics like Pong, or, even better, recent ones such as Spaceteam and Johann Sebastian Joust. Everyone interested in the topic is welcome to take part – but you better be quick: there are only 64 tickets up for sale and half of them are already gone!
WHY: Because games that you can play together with other people are our favourite kind of games. They used to rule they world, then the internet arrived and we forgot about them. Now it seems like they're coming back big time. To our knowledge, there hasn't been an event completely dedicated to local multiplayer games yet anywhere in the world, so we thought we should do something about it.
