Double Fine holding "Day of the Devs" event next month

Brutal Legend studio collaborating with iam8bit for free independent developer event in San Francisco; will feature unannounced game, Phil Fish as DJ.

Double Fine Productions today announced Day of the Devs, a special event in collaboration with production company iam8bit to be held November 2 in San Francisco, California.

The free event will feature a lineup of games from Double Fine, including the first public hands-on opportunity for the Kickstarter-funded Broken Age, as well as an unannounced new title from the Brutal Legend studio.

Games from Supergiant Games, Capybara Games, Gaijin Games, SpyParty, Honeyslug, and Tribute Games will be on display at the event, as well as various merchandise. In addition, Fez creator Phil Fish will serve as DJ for the event, organizers announced.

"It's basically all of our favorite people in one place, for a night of awesome games, food, music, happiness, and creativity," Double Fine president and CEO Tim Schafer said. "Essentially, a Night of 1,000 Hugs."

Several food trucks will be on location, and drinks will be served. The event will be held at Public Works at 161 Erie St. in San Francisco from 4-8 p.m. on November 2. The event is free to attend, though no one under 21 will be allowed in. More information is available at the new Day of the Devs website.

Yay, more stuff for the people on the West coast.  >.<

Anyway, I hope Double Fine finishes with the game and gets it out, and gets back to working on more games.  They've been on such a roll creatively with games like Costume Quest, Trenched and Stacking, I have been keeping an eye on them since and eagerly awaiting their newest releases.

Sometimes my comments disappear into nothingness, it's happened twice now, and I didn't wrtite anything mean or include bad words or internet links. 

So... Too bad I can't come to this free event, a bit long to go from Sweden, because it seems great.

Phil Fish as DJ? I hope he copes with that better than he did as a game developer. People are stupid and mean and arrogant little twats, but what are you gonna do about it? You can't change their behaviour, but you can ignore them. 

This event being free seems great, too bad I live in Sweden and can't afford to fly there.

@Hurvl Yeah that Phil Fish thing caught my eye.  Well, at least he still has some friends in the industry.  Maybe after a while he'll come back around and decide to work on games again.

They should've just made a Brutal Legends 2.
