We are hosting a brand-new gaming festival this summer celebrating classic videogames! The event is called Classic Game Fest, and it will take place at the north Austin, TX location of Game Over Videogames at Hwy 183 @ Lamar.
We will have a big movie screen set up in the parking lot, and each night we will host classic game tournaments followed by a videogame-related movie fitting the theme for each night. The events will be every other Friday night for the rest of the summer from 8pm – Midnight starting July 11th and run through August 22nd. (Exact dates are July 11, July 25, August 8, and August 22)
You can also check out our website, www.gameovervideogames.com, or call or come by one of our stores to ask us about it. It should be an awesome experience so make sure that you are there to witness and take part in it!
It is totally FREE to WATCH and FREE to PLAY!! Signup sheets to compete in the tournaments will be posted each festival night at 8pm and spots are limited so be here at 8pm if you plan on competing. The movies will start around 10:30 and last until just after midnight. This is a family friendly event, and you may bring folding chairs, blankets, snacks, drinks (non-alcoholic, of course!), etc. It’ll be like “movies in the park”, but with classic videogames and videogame-themed movies.
The north store will be open late on festival nights for your shopping pleasure, and we’ll have special sales and prizes during each event.
We hope that you will join us in making this inaugural event a great success!
August 8 – “Street Fighter Night – Street Fighter II Tournament (Super Nintendo SNES)”
For this night, it is all about the ultimate old school fighting game – Street Fighter II on the Super Nintendo. We will have a large bracketed tournament, but come early for this one, it should fill up fast! There can only be one champion tonight, so come prepared to unleash your inner “Haruken” on someone! The featured movie tonight should be obvious – think about it.
