Video game collective Attract Mode and maker of fine video game culture goods Fangamer are hosting their second gaming-inspired show at PAX Prime in Seattle, Wash. on Saturday, Aug. 31 , bringing fine art prints, music, indie games and booze together for one night.

Mariel Cartwright, Mingjue Helen Chen, Cherry Slug, Steve Courtney, Ashley Davis, Daniel Dussault, Dominique Ferland, Gerard Flannory, Kari Fry, Jacob Ferguson, Kyle Fewell, Zac Gorman, Nicole Gustafsson, Junkboy, Melissa King, Corey Lewis, Andrew Lockhart, Jon Magram, Mikey Mann, Chad Manzo, Kris Mukai, Maré Odomo, OMOCAT, Timothy J. Reynolds, Luis Santiago, Asif Siddiky, Jacob Smiley, Space Coyote, Babs Tarr, Jovan Velkosk, Ventla, Meiko Walamies, Campbell Whyte, Laura Wilson, Winter Artwork and Drew Wise

A small selection of the artwork that will be both on display and on sale can be previewed in the gallery below.

The Fangamer X Attract Mode event will host two playable games, 17-Bit's Galak-Z: The Dimensional, the sci-fi space shooter coming to PlayStation 4, and Capy Games' Synchroma, a title borne of a Capy game jam that will make its publicly playable debut.

The evening's musical entertainment will be provided by chiptunes artist Danimal Cannon and composer Jake "Virt" Kaufman, whose credits include Mighty Switch Force and DuckTales Remastered.

Fangamer X Attract Mode takes place Saturday, Aug. 31, from 7 p.m. to midnight, at 1927 Events on 3rd Ave. in downtown Seattle. The event will carry a $10 cover charge. Additional details are available at Attract Mode's website.
