Donostitron Fest

Donostitron Fest

The DonostiTron initiative publicly presented a second DonostriTron arcade machine and to celebrate it we were invited to a party that mixed video games and music. 

The group gathers to work on the topic of video games since in 2014 its restored an old arcade machine as an open project in Hirikilabs. In 2016 they organised the Donostitron Jam, a marathon for the creation of video games for the arcade machine and on this occasion they had also received the collaboration of Hirikilabs to create a new arcade machine from scratch by organising a public workshop. 

To debut this new machine they proposed to the visitors to start to play different games and consoles from 18:00 in the Z Room, to then confront the two arcade machines in a fight with a classic game. Last of all, they wanted to celebrated the day with a music concert and visual material in 8 bits. The concert had also included visual material created based on video games by Entter, a visual artist from Bilbao and who also offered a small masterclass to show how these types of images are created.
