The seasons are changing and the days are growing colder, but that means it’s almost time for everyone’s favorite festival of the Fall!

Presented by Double Fine Productions and iam8bit, Day of the Devs returns to The Midway in San Francisco on November 11 for it’s 6th annual celebration of games.

There will be more than 70 unreleased games there for you to play, celebrating some of the year’s best indie and AAA titles, with a few exclusive debuts and excellent live music from Chipzel, Hydelic, and Doseone!

“Day of the Devs is our favorite time of year. You could say it’s a holiday just for indie games, except that we’ve also invited a handful of our favorite AAA games too,” said Double Fine President and CEO Tim Schafer. “For 2018 we’re bringing together the best developers, games and people to make it truly unforgettable so mark your calendars now to avoid missing out on the most epic Sunday of your life.”

If you are interested in attending you can RSVP here (admission is FREE).
