Bit Bash is an alternative video games arts festival in Chicago, exposing unique and independent games to those who might not traditionally experience them. More street festival than convention, Bit Bash highlights some of the best the scene has to offer. This includes local and international selections, games best experienced with others, or that utilize unique controllers. Games that really push the boundaries.

2015’s event includes Jerry Belich’s Afterglow, Marc Flury and Brian Gibson’s Thumper, Paloma Dawkin’s Gardenarium, and Matthew Yeager’s Aerobat. Plus: Sentris’ Samantha Kalman will be playing a DJ set at 8pm! Check out the festival trailer here.

  • Raising visibility for the growing independent games community.

  • Highlighting Chicago as a developing hub for those who love games, technology, or art.

  • Connecting with at-risk youth to foster an interest in technology and art.
