Chicago's indie game development community is hosting its second annual festival, called Bit Bash, on August 22. After a successful launch in 2014, this year's event boasts over 50 games and occupies three times as much space thanks to its host, T-shirt maker Threadless.
The family-friendly event helps to provide awareness to games made in and around the city, as well as bring in titles from around the world that might otherwise not get the attention they deserve. Tickets are on sale now.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Chicago Loot Drop, a non-profit organization that supports University of Chicago's Comer Children's Hospital.
Games being shown include the following:
