Going on for now over a decade, Evo is the must-attend event for fighting game fans and competitors all over the world. Over three days, Evo hosts a variety of fighting game tournaments, exhibitions, and a ‘bring your own controller’ area where gamers can compete, meet up, and get hype!

The NYU Game Center will have a booth in the Indie Showcase showing work from our students and games from the 2015 Incubator. At the booth you’ll be able to play:

Ninja Tag
Awkward Date
Circa Infinity
Ape Out

Stop by between matches to see what kind of competitive and single player games are being made at the Game Center and chat with students and staff about the program!

If you aren’t there in person, you can still watch the competition all weekend long over at Twitch.tv. Subscribe to the Evo stream to help support the Evo Scholarship!


East Coast Best Coast (in the world)?

The first place winner at our Spring Fighter tournament this year won a round trip ticket to compete at Evo. NYC’s own Kreymore took home the prize, and he’s headed to Evo this weekend to play the best fighting game players from all over the world. We wish Kreymore and the rest of the East Coast competitors good luck!

Watch Kreymore compete live on Twitch.tv! Subscribe to the stream to support the Evo Scholarship!


Play BADBLOOD at the Evo Indie Showcase

MFA Alumni and Incubator participant Winnie Song’s game BADBLOOD has been selected for the 2015 Evo Indie Showcase!

BADBLOOD is a local split-screen hide & seek between two players, with a deadly consequence—a suspenseful game punctuated with frantic violence, where each player sees the arena from different orientations. As a vengeful character on a personal manhunt, you must use stealth, spatial awareness, and disorientation to find and kill your opponent before they find you. Check out trailers, screenshots, and more here.

The Evo Indie Showcase is designed to bring the best in competitive indie games to Evo. Badblood is being shown alongside games like VIDEOBALL, Gang Beasts, and more. Read about the showcase and all the games here.
