Monday is the first day of Fantastic Arcade talks and tourneys, but you can play this year’s games already, either in the Highball, in our Arcade lounge or at home, with five new experimental games that were incubated by Juegos Rancheros, the Austin indie game collective. These games are running in custom cabinets at the festival but you can get them together as a bundle from itch.io.

Regardless of how you might feel about Waking Life, Bob is a super great guy who I love making stuff with. I show up at the end of this and mention a new(old) possible collaboration I’m pitching.
Sometime last year I discovered that the blog I previously hosted at this address had become slowly riddled with spam links due to a security flaw in a Wordpress extension. I had been dutifully posting to it since 2002, as raw html and then as a Blogger site, finally as Wordpress. The spam was insidious- nothing overt enough to gain my attention at first, years-old posts were having random words linked to spam sites. I was able to fix the security problems, but the amount of effort it would have taken to scrub the posts of the links was too much for me to consider. Also, as I was flipping through the posts, I had an impulse to flush them all out and start fresh.
Nearly 30 session videos from Fantastic Arcade 2015 have been posted on YouTube. Fantastic Arcade is one of several game related events that Juegos Rancheros programs for Film and Cultural Festivals each year.
