Gamers, your weekend is made. PixelPop Festival is a celebration of video games and game development, and it takes over the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; this Saturday and Sunday (October 8 and 9). You can sample panels and seminars on game design that examine everything from voice acting to the psychology used to hook players' imaginations. Oh, and you can also play 35 brand-new games and give feedback to their designers. Among those new games are Rain of Arrows, a first-person shooter in which you ride a raft down a river and have to pick off assailants along the banks using your archery skills, and Joggernauts, a cooperative party platformer that requires two to four players to solve tandem jogging puzzles, navigate teleportation swaps and yell colors at each other as members of an interstellar high school track and field team. There will be tournaments for the competitive as well as analog games (tabletop, card and board games). Registration opens at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and at 11 a.m. Sunday. Single-day admission is $15 and two-day passes are $25.
