This month, we’re hosting a special edition of Indie Game Night during our Last Wednesday Free Play Party, since we’re closed Thursday 11/27 for Thanksgiving! Come down early, as we’ll be set up at 5pm. It’s happy hour at Ground Kontrol until 7pm, too!

What is Indie Game Night?
We live in a golden age of independent game development and Portland needs a central event to showcase these games! Many games are being made to allow several people in the same room to face each other in a fun, friendly, inviting, and community driven way. Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade and musician/games writer Matt Hunter have taken up the call!
Indie Game Night is a showcase of independently developed multiplayer games for folks to play for FREE with other patrons. Games include 2-4 player death-match, experimental, and high score races from developers from all over the world as well as local developers. We plan on hosting game-themed nights, tournaments, developer spotlights, and much more! A gaming community is far too important to let go stagnant and this is the hub we need to unify everyone who loves games of all kinds.
Above all else, we want a fun experience for those who are familiar with games as well as those who are interested in a welcoming introduction. The games we will be showing will be basic to learn but tough to master. Only the highest quality concepts get featured. We have the tough job of researching the best indie games out there and playing these games for hours to filter out what could work – and what doesn’t!
Come join us! It’s free and a great place to try out some new games while testing your mettle against other players!
Ground Kontrol serves a full bar and food menu nightly, and is 21+ only after 5pm.
