Play SpyParty after E3 on Friday June 10th in LA

Update: Okay, Joystiq has finally posted the full details.  It’s at the La Cita Bar in downtown LA, from 5:30pm to 9pm on Friday, June 10th.   The other games being shown include Monaco, Nidhogg, Retro City Rampage, Q.U.B.E., and two unannounced projects, one from Harmonix and one from Ska Studios.  It should be a lot of fun!

Sadly, it’s 21 and over, since it’s a bar, sorry about that!

Oh, and they want you to RSVP.  Hope to see you there!

Sorry for the late notice on this, and apparently the venue is still getting nailed down, but Joystiq is having a party after E3 in Los Angeles, and I’ll be there with a SpyParty playtest setup.  You are invited to come play!  The party is on Friday, June 10th, from 6pm to 9pm, somewhere in LA.  Yes, this is Friday, and E3 is over on Thursday, so hopefully you’re still in town or can change your tickets if you’re not local.  I’ll update this post when they figure out exactly where the party will reside, but hopefully you can make it!

There are going to be a bunch of other indie games there too, including Monaco, Nidhogg, and others.  I’m sure the official announcement will have the complete list, when it gets posted.

I’ll bring copies of the Infamous Four Page Instruction Manual, but you should read it before you show up so you’re prepared to pwn newbs.

    Is it an open event or should I RSVP somewhere? Thanks!

      I think it’s open, but Joystiq should be posting about it soon with actual firm details. I just wanted people to save the date before it was too late!

    • Erik Johnson says:

      Thanks for the response, will keep my eye on their feed. Not missing another chance to play if I can. :)

    Oh wow. I really want to make it to this but right now my flight is leaving on the 10th atm. The whole point of my going to E3 was to make connections with awesome indies devs like you guys too :(

    Gonna see what I can do to make it to this!

    • checker says:

      Yeah, sorry about such late notice!  I was waiting for them to announce but they kept delaying it, so I figured I had to say something if anybody from out of town was going to have a chance of making it!  Hopefully you’re on Southwest or something that will let you change!

    • BudokaiMR2 says:

      Okay flight changed! This better not get cancelled or something! Really looking forward to playing this.

    • checker says:

      If it gets cancelled I will meet you at a cafe somewhere in LA for a personal playtest. :)

    Joystiq has officially announced the event, and it’s open. Here’s the Facebook event page. If you’re going make sure you RSVP!

    Chris I know you’ll be busy next week, but if you have an available hour I’d love to meet up at one of the coffee shops or bars around the convention center sometime in the evenings or during the floor hours of the events for an interview. If you’d like, please email me: cupogoodness[at] and we can set-up something. If you’re swamped, totally understand — thanks for the consideration!

    • checker says:

      Awesome, thanks, I updated the post! Not sure I’ll have time to meet up, I tend to be a little crazy at shows and I haven’t figured out my schedule yet, but definitely come say hi at the party and we can chat.

    • Erik Johnson says:

      Sounds good Chris, look forward to seeing you and your game next Friday!
