The exhibition will host around 20 different playable titles each day, from developers all over the world, including Tango Fiesta, 0rbitalis, Tap Happy Sabbotage, Timmy Bibble’s Friendship Club, Beyond Gravity, Mighty Tactical Shooter, In Space We Brawl, A Light in Chorus, Fossil Echo, The Kraken Sleepeth, The Marvellous Miss Take, Volume, and many others.

“The creative variety and diversity of the games is amazing”, says co-founder and organiser Georg Backer, “and highlights that Radius is for everyone, from the one person developer to the established studio and to gamers and general public who are curious about games.”

“Radius is a celebration of game design and of the vibrancy of this wonderful industry,” adds co-organiser Keith Stuart. “We set it up in the wake of the major event E3 video games exhibition in Los Angeles, to give gamers a chance to experience and celebrate games amid a period of excitement and hype for the games business.”

The exhibition is free for everyone to attend and runs from June 19th to June 21st. There is £15 Supporter Ticket which includes a free drink and download tokens for two PC indie games: 0rbitalis and Richard & Alice.

During the evenings, there’ll also be the “Radius Show”, a live-streamed Internet show presented by games industry veterans and broadcast on Twitch, featuring developer interviews, guest stars and many surprises. Tickets for the evening show cost £25 and include a free drink plus free digital editions of 0rbitalis, Richard & Alice and Tango Fiesta. The show will be live streamed via twitch.tv/radiusfestival

Tickets for both the Exhibition and the Evening live show are now available at radiusfestival.eventbrite.co.uk

Radius is a non-profit event, successor to last year’s very successful Etoo games event, and has been organised by a fantastic team of volunteers including games designer & producer Georg Backer, UKIE Chairman & Mastertronic CEO Andy Payne, Loading Bar’s James Dance and Guardian journalist Keith Stuart to celebrate games and the wider games industry. It’s sponsored by Sega, Mastertronic and Mike Bithell, developer of award-winning indie hit, Thomas Was Alone, who will also showcase his next game Volume at the Exhibition.

The live stream show will be produced by Magdoos Media & ArabicGamers.

Founder & Editor of ItsMuchMore.com In my early days I had a passion for video games of all kinds, which lead to myself and a number of close friends and family creating a gaming clan and community called UKRockers. After 10 years UKRockers disbanded which lead to myself and brother (RockerJarvis) creating ItsMuchMore. I still enjoy playing games now can be anything from retro, indie to today's biggest and best titles, it isn't just computer or video games that I enjoy doing I also like to go to the Theatre and Cinema.
