In preparation, we'll be getting together this Sunday, at Touch Of Madness to make new games, build new controllers and create some decor. Please join us for Super Cozy Jam!

Otherwise, if anyone has been working on any fun/ weird/ multiplayer/ party games (or anything else that you feel could be a good fit on the night) please let us know. We'd love to check them out!

Confused about WTF Super Friendship Arcade is?

SFA is a series of pop up events designed to paint video games in a new light, break down pre-exsisting ideas of who games are for, grow more diverse communites of game makers and game developers, turn strangers into friends and generally save The World through the powers of kindness, rebelion and creativity!

Be excellent to each other!

Super Cozy Jam:

No need to interupt your creative rampage!

  • Made a promo video for the big night!

    Thanked by 1Squidcor
  • Just two days until Super Cozy Arcade! If you're Cape Town based, it'll well worth checking out!

    Here's a quick gif with photos from our last event:

  • Hey, so, painfully noobie question from someone who's never attended a jam: on a scale of Skeleton key to E-toll license disk in Cape Town, how useless is a digital artist at this event if their rig isn't mobile?
  • @Wes_Matthews the jam happened on July 23rd - so bringing your rig to the party on Saturday would probably not be useful :P.
    Thanked by 1Wes_Matthews
  • Lmao, noted. Thanks. ^_^
    Thanked by 1roguecode
  • Sorry you missed the jam @Wes_Matthews - don't miss out on the main event tomorrow night!

    For future jams you are;

    A) ...totally welcome to bring along a desktop if you have one and feel like lugging it around.

    B) ... definitely encouraged to come jam regardless of what equipment you have access to. SFA is all about growing the community by lowering the barriers of entry that people generally associate with making games. No one should be put off if they don't have access to a laptop/ tablet/ phone (or anything else) to work on; as mentioned in the jam's description, the only things you need are yourself, fun ideas and enthusiasm to put them in to action!
  • The party was soooo good last night. Super rad games, super rad people and a super rad venue! The Friendship Arcade team!
    Thanked by 2LexAquillia pieter
  • Yeah, it was really excellent! Major thanks and high fives to everyone that created things for the party!

    We got to show off 5 brand new games and 3 brand new custom controllers made by the community, plus some other great SA titles, some of our older controllers and some really exciting titles from abroad. We're waiting on some photos and then I'll share a bit of a breakdown of all the cool stuff that we had on show. For now, I just wanted to echo @EvanGreenwood's super-posive report; Super Cozy Arcade was sooooo good!
