Fantastic Arcade celebrates weird gaming—dancing bears, condemned NESes, and all

AUSTIN, Texas—Genre-celebrating Fantastic Fest may strech wider and weirder than any other film festival when it comes to screenings (see new zombie-high school-Christmas musicals or 90s-Japanese TV-crossover mockumentaries, for instance). And back in 2010, the eventuality combined a gaming arm.

Needless to say, it gets weird, too.

Put on by internal eccentric gaming organisation Juegos Rancheros, Fantastic Arcade has developed from a showcase for 10-20 games in its early days to now braggadocio closer to 50 showcase titles from several hundred submissions. In 2017, Fantastic Arcade grew so much—and captivated such an audience—that it indispensable to turn its own standalone event. More than a month after the latest film apportionment wrapped, indie diversion enthusiasts congested into a internal Alamo Drafthouse last weekend to see some of the many singular titles coming from developers in Texas and beyond.
