Last year, Nintendo held an event called Nindies@Night during PAX West, where several upcoming indie games on Nintendo platforms were showcased. Since it was pretty successful, Nintendo has decided to host another one this year, once again with the EMP Museum in Seattle. Good news: it’s still completely free!

This year, the Nindies@Night event will take place on September 1st, from 8PM to 12PM, at the EMP Museum (325 Fifth Ave. N in Seattle). Just like last time, attendees will able to try out various indie games, but they will also have the opportunity to snag some giveaways and prizes (while supplies last). Finally, they will get access to the EMP’s Indie Game Revolution exhibit, and more.

Here’s the list of games that will be playable at the event:

The Indie Lounge will be open from 12PM to 9PM (Friday/Sunday, and 12PM to 6PM (Monday).
