The world’s first street games advice shop is now open in Bristol. The igfest store on St Nicholas Street has popped-up as part of the build-up to the festival which takes place between September 5 and 8, once again using the streets of Bristol as the playground for dozens of different games.
The store is a place to pick up advice as well as tickets to some of this year’s games, which includes, for the last time in Bristol, zombie chase game 2.8 Hours Later.
Organisers SlingShot promise the fifth annual festival will be “bigger, ballsier and more bonkers than ever before”.
“Igfest is a festival like no other. Where other festivals have mud, crippling ticket prices and questionable hygiene, we have robots, zombies, ninja death cows, sweetshop bank heists, biblical sized water fights and powdered paint. Lots of powdered paint!”
Two new headline games, Cargo Remix and Incitement, will make their world debuts, while the igfest fringe will see dozens of games wrapped up in a party in Castle Park on Saturday, September 8.
