check their site for updated info in the coming weeks

if you attended the Dead Rising event, it's the same location updated.

So what's happening at the event?
How about over 100 artists works.
*A special tribute to Galaga's 30th anniversary featuring the world's largest "arcade cabinet"
*  The transformation of the entire gallery into an 80's gaming wonderland by designer decal collective  BLIK
*An interactive, "retro-fied" Kinect hack from Double Fine super-artist Drew Skillman
Music will be handled by
 DJ R-Rated
       With special performances by Leeni and A_Rival

Another big reveal is the cover of the book with 160 pages of video game art goodness. Kevin Pereira (Adam Sessler would have been nicer) has written a forward. You"ll be able to buy it from 8bit itself when their online store is up or at the show.

That's just some great news. Reveals of artists in the show will be forthcoming and other cool stuff. I can't wait to check it out in August.
