Stop by Mild Rumpus at GDC 2016 and play some charming indie games

Charming, quixotic indie video game showcase collective Wild Rumpus returns to GDC 2016 with games like Beeswing, Subway Adventure, Anatomically Incorrect Dinosaurs and more.

With the Game Developers Conference is coming up fast, and we're excited to announce that indie video game showcase collective Wild Rumpus will once again make an appearance at GDC 2016 to welcome attendees as honored guests in their 'Mild Rumpus' game lounge.

Last year, Wild Rumpus encouraged GDC attendees to stroll through the trees and into the welcoming heart of their GDC 2015 Mild Rumpus woodland grotto.

This year the grotto returns as a comfortable oasis where GDC 2016 attendees can seek respite from the hum and drum of the action-packed GDC week. Grotto-goers will also discover a fresh, hand-picked selection of independent games, and they may even have a chance to catch a live talk or performance from one of the games' talented designers. 

For more details on the Mild Rumpus interactive space at GDC 2016 and its list of games, check out the official website or stop by the space itself on the ground floor of the West Hall of San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center during GDC itself.

Without further ado, here's the list of this year's Mild Rumpus game lineup:

Anatomically Incorrect Dinosaurs from a team that includes Lead Paleontologist: Arshpitt Mckaye, UX Consultant Meevine Lidcuff Ph.D MD, Primary Corporate Assistant Whistler Lopez, Lead Dinosaur Designer Old Man Fern, Lead Nathalie Lawhead
