The Southside Games Festival returns for 2022, bringing you a fresh bonanza of videogames to play. We aim to bring you games you've never played before, from local indies and far-away auteurs. Games to make you think and games to vent your rage over, but mostly games which are a bag of fun.

See www.southsidegamesfestival.uk for more details and the full lineup.
