"Fantastic Arcade's Spotlight games are selected by a hard-to-define quality we like to call 'arcadiness,'" says Juegos Rancheros co-founder Wiley Wiggins. The Spotlight games were chosen by Wiggins, Adam Saltsman and Brandon Boyer, the founders of Austin indie collective Juegos Rancheros, and Arcade Technical Director Joshua Fields.
Towerfall has been a convention and Ouya favorite of ours for a while, while Wasteland Kings was just outed today as the next game from Vlambeer. It's an action roguelike starring mutants as they attempt to capture the Wasteland throne, and it's "a happy place where weird shit happens all the time," Vlambeer tells us.
These games are part of more than 20 total coming to Fantastic Arcade, an offshoot of genre film showcase Fantastic Fest. We've been impressed with Fantastic Arcade's offerings in the past, and this year is poised to please as well.
