Indie & Aspiring Devs Take Note: Dave & Buster’s Next Big Game Search is On!

Kevin Bachus of original Xbox is now leading the games team at modern arcade Dave and Buster's, and he wants to hear your game pitch

Dave and Busters has been keeping the spirit of the old school arcade alive and well. A favorite spot for adults to chill out with a few games and friends without being harassed by animatronic mice, D&B is everything you loved about the arcades you grew up with, plus beer.

Kevin Bachus is their VP of Entertainment and Games, formerly on the team that designed the original Xbox, and he’s no stranger to the gaming industry. Now he wants to find a fresh idea.

“I would hope that this contest brings to light some idea that would never occur to anybody. I think that opening up this opportunity to our guests… is a natural progression.”

Watch the interview for more of Kevin’s thoughts about the Next Big Game Search and how arcades and indies can work together.

The winner of the NBGS will win free games for life at Dave and Buster’s, and their game will be available at D&B locations – which for the indie developer or aspiring game dev is one heck of a prize.
