A space for independent games and playable arts

A strictly non-commercial, artist-run endeavor

An attempt to reimagine the social dynamics of the arcade without nostalgia and commodification of play

A venue for projects that don’t sit comfortably in traditional art contexts and game industry events

A node in a growing network of spaces and events promoting an alternative, experimental game culture

A 20’x23’x12’ room in the Garfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA

A space committed to be inclusive and harassment-free
