New Sponsors and a whole lot of new swag!

A lot of you are probably wondering, "what's been cooking over at Indies Need Booze?" We have been a bit silent in the past weeks, but we have tons of new things to let the drunken public know!

We are happy to announce that now each ticket you purchase comes with an extra game!  That's [insert math here] more game time! Drunken Indie Passes will come with two game codes and a flask, while the Extremely Drunken Indie Passes come with four game codes, a flask, and a t-shirt!

We have Lantana Games and Structure Gaming sponsoring us with game codes to Children of Liberty on Steam right now! Children of Liberty blends classic 2D gameplay into a 3D world. Run, sneak, and turn your way through the streets of Colonial Boston in a stealth adventure like no other. 

But wait, there's more! -- 

If you didn't think things could get any more drunktastic (sure, let's go with that), we have an even better offer for everyone who purchased a Extremely Drunken Indie Pass. You not only get a flask, but a flask from our next sponsor at Ink Whiskey! It's shaped like an old school Nintendo cartridge and conceals all your booze in style.  How fucking cool is that?! 

Again, if you purchased an Extremely Drunken Indie Pass please make sure to fill out our t-shirt survey over at our website by August 3rd. If you purchase a ticket after August 3rd you can choose between small, medium, and large shirts which are first come first serve. If you'd kindly gaze above at that glorious t-shirt Jacob is wearing you can bask in the awesomeness that comes with your Extreme Drunken Indie Pass.

Finally, all the developers out there who want to compete in our Drunken Indie Showcase have until August 1st to reach for glory. All you need is a ticket, a demo for us to play, and you will be entered into our competition to show at our event!  

Sincerely, Jacob and John.

Enter for a chance to be apart of our Drunken Indie Showcase

It's that time again! Time to show off your game of the video, board, or card variety! The rules are simple, but this year there will be only one winner. We have other developers to announce, but this year we are only picking one big winner to be apart of our Indies Need Booze. Here are the rules.

  • To enter first make sure you purchase a ticket to our event (Free, $10 or $30). If you are using a different email to enter the contest than from what you purchased the ticket with let us know. 
  • Your game must have a playable demo.  We need to check out your awesome game before we include it.  If you can not send us a demo, then you can not enter. 
  • Deadline for entering your game into us is August 1st. 
  • Send your emails to gaminginpublic@yahoo.com
Here are some suggestions to take into consideration when you are entering your game. 
  • This is a party, so we choose games that go well with booze and loud crowds. 
  • Please leave any instructions on installing or controls for your game. 
  • Keep your emails short and to the point... we have a lot to read
After August 1st, we will feature all the games competing to show at our event. Yes, we will actually play all the games that get sent to us and feature them on indiesneedbooze.com, our facebook page, and everywhere else we can think of.  We are constantly inebriated and exhibit poor judgment on a regular basis, but we will do everything we can to give everyone a fair chance at winning the contest.

Good luck developers!

Sincerely, Jacob and John

Lets Drink to Catalteral Damage

After a short break, we are finally back into the swings of things. We had to take a teensy lil hiatus in order to get all our boozy eggs in one drunkenly woven basket. If you didn't already know, Indies Need Booze is coming to PAX Prime in a big way. I mean BIG!  We got our own bar! Not just a corner section of the bar, but the whole damn bar! Join us August 28th at Capital Cider from 9pm to 2am for a night of indie gaming, booze, and a few other surprises we have up our sleeves.

Tonight on Twitch TV from 7pm to 8pm join us for our first game being shown in our Drunken Indie Showcase Catlateral Damage. Right now you can pledge to this game on Kickstarter. It's a game about being a sadistic creatures we call  a "cat" and knocking over as many things as you can.  You know those cute internet videos of cats acting like complete A-holes by knocking stuff over and then looking at you like, "That's right.  I did that.  NOW PICK IT UP, HUMAN!"  It's like that, but you destroy an entire house.

Fire Hose Games will be joining us at Indies Need Booze (You know, the party at PAX Prime!) to show us their new game! This will be a chance to drink with the developers and, of course, play the game. Can you drink beer on the floor show floor at PAX? I don't think so!

Make sure to tune in next week for new nuggets of goodness about Indies Need Booze.

Again, we really need everyone's help in spreading the word about Indies Need Booze. So far we have sold  25 tickets, which is a good start, but a long way from our goal of filling out this bar.  We want this party to blow the pants off our last party and that is going to be tough considering how many awesome people came out to party at PAX East!  PAX Prime... are you really going to let PAX East show you up like that?

Friends don't let friends miss out on awesome parties with Indie Developers.  These are some of the coolest people you will ever meet.  So, buy a ticket, come party, and support some great indies!  Plus, there will be prizes, videogames, and ... beer.
