Evolution Champion Series (EVO) is the largest fighting game community event of the year. If you are heading out to EVO, check out these fun things to do on the show floor other than the tournaments!
5. Artist Alley
Artist Alley is very common at conventions. Original creators and artists have a chance to show their creative work to thousands of attendees. EVO stated that this is their biggest Artist Alley yet!
4. Gang Beasts
What the heck is Gang Beasts? It’s not like it’s title. Gang Beasts is a multi-player party game with little jelly people, and it can play up to 20 players! The Gang Beasts game demo at EVO is a wrestling battle royale. 20 players try to throw each other over the top rope, and last one standing wins. Players can try the game inside a wrestling ring! Gang Beasts is currently available on PS4, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux on Steam and the Humble Store, and as an Oculus Early Access game for the Oculus Rift headset.
If you love arcade cabinets, check out Arcade1Up‘s booth. They brought their giant arcade cabinet that you have to climb up steps to a platform to play on it. Around the booth are smaller arcade cabinets that you pull up a seat and play casually with with another, or just sit back and relax on one of the couple couches in the back. Arcade1Up cabinets are available to buy on their website.
