Day of the Devs is coming back for its fourth year this November. Hosted by game development studio Double Fine and the nerd-focused production company iam8bit, the free, all-ages annual festival is dedicated to indie games and the developers that make them.
Among the nearly 50 games that will be available to play at the festival are Tacoma, Nidhogg 2, the VR-exclusive Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin, Lucas Pope’s Papers, Please follow-up Return of the Obra Dinn, and, playable for the first time, the Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee.
There will also be food trucks at the festival and live music from videogame music composers SCNTFC (Oxenfree), Darren Korb (Bastion and Transistor), Jim Guthrie (Sword & Sorcery) and Baiyon (PixelJunk Eden).
Double Fine President Tim Schafer said of the festival, “We had so many great games last year. We just assumed that people’s appetite would be satisfied forever. But they want to see more games! At least, according to Twitter, Facebook, and … what’s that yellow ghost thing called? That swaps faces?”
According to the press release, Schafer then started ranting about social media, which then somehow segued into condemning modern Lego sets that basically come pre-built. Schafer was then quoted as saying, “In my day, you had to use your IMAGINATION. But anyway, we’re fixing all that with Day of the Devs. It’s bigger and better than ever!”
Day of the Devs takes place on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time at The Midway, 900 Marin Street, in San Francisco’s Dogpatch District. You can see the full—and still growing—list of games to be featured at the festival below.
