I am very pleased to announce that the #1000ButtonProject, in the form of Centenntable, will be attending its first international show — the Toronto, ON based Hand Eye Society Ball for 2018.
As their website states:
…And one by one danced the revellers in the LED-bedecked halls of their revel, and button-mashed each in the delighting posture of their play. And N++ and Cuphead and Line Wobbler held illimitable dominion over all.
So ends one account of a legendary gathering known as the Hand Eye Society Ball, an annual celebration of contemporary videogames and playful media from Toronto and beyond. Acting as both fancy videogame party and fundraiser to support a local gaming arts organization, this particular enchanted evening holds some fresh mysteries in store: Four artifacts brought together by four strangers, all meeting on the fourth of a series of strange nights indeed. Diamonds and spades, hearts and clubs: What could be the meaning of these elusive allusions?

A 100-button fighting game for 2 players where the controls are randomized every round, and possibly every move… We’re not entirely sure, and that’s part of the fun! A button-masher in the most literal sense of the term! pic.twitter.com/ElKdMqLHDb

I am very excited to take this road show to another country, and pleased as punch that the folks in Toronto are wiling to have little old me in their city. Hopefully we’ll have a bunch of great pictures to show off after the event, and a few more people excitedly playing the game but this time in fancy dress.
