Play lovely indie games at the GDC 2015 Mild Rumpus grotto

Beautifully indosyncratic indie video game showcase collective Wild Rumpus returns to GDC 2015 with games like Mountain, Night in the Woods, Eidolon and more.

The 2015 Game Developers Conference is coming up fast, and we're excited to announce that indie video game showcase collective Wild Rumpus will return to GDC to double down on the success of last year's 'Mild Rumpus' game lounge.

You may remember that last year the keen minds behind Wild Rumpus created a special low-key lounge space on the second floor of Moscone West. 

The sofa-filled Mild Rumpus offered GDC 2014 passholders an opportunity to kick back, relax, and check out games like Cardboard Computer's Kentucky Route Zero and Blendo Games' Quadrilateral Cowboy.

This year the Mild Rumpus returns with an expanded game lineup and a new woodland aesthetic. The Wild Rumpus encourages GDC attendees to stroll through the trees and into the welcoming heart of the Mild Rumpus woodland grotto.

Amid the comfortable wildlife you’ll find respite from the hustle and bustle with a hand-picked selection of all-natural independent video games. Each day at 5pm the Wild Rumpus team will bring you live talks and performances from different designers. To view the full schedule, stop by the grotto or visit the Mild Rumpus website

Here's the full list of this year's Mild Rumpus game lineup:

Eidolon from Ice Water Games

Future Unfolding from Spaces of Play

Gardenarium from Paloma Dawkins and Ko-op Mode

Heartwood from Kerry Turner and Dan Bibby 

Mountain from David O’Reilly

Night in the Woods from Infinite Fall

Overland from Finji Games

Secret Habitat from Strangethink

Way to Go from AATOAA, NFB, France TV, Vincent Morisset, Philippe Lambert, Edouard Lanctôt-Benoit and Caroline Robert

GDC 2015 itself will take place March 2-6, 2015 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California. For more information on GDC 2015, visit the show's official website, or subscribe to regular updates via FacebookTwitter, or RSS.
