The Free Radical Gong of Terror!

On Friday 27th October, something terrifying is happening. It is an event that will forever live in memory as the day that dreams were broken, and careers were made.

On Friday 27th October, a large, well-muscled Chinese guy will rub himself down with baby oil and stand topless - poised by a huge orchestral gong.

On Friday 27th October, a group of young hopefuls will meet and compete for a position with one of the world's best game developers: Free Radical Design.

And on that very same Friday, three of the foremost experts in the world of video games will judge the game ideas of those hopefuls in front of a 600-strong crowd.

Welcome to the Free Radical Gong of Terror!

There is only one rule: don't be boring.

For those who do bore the judges can expect the worst kind of humiliation: being interrupted by The Gong, and being booed off stage by the merciless audience of drunken revellers.

We're taking the world of video games out of the bedroom and into your face. You'd better be ready. BAM!

Where: 'Kudos', Thurland St, Nottingham, NG1 3DR


When: Friday 27th October, 8pm
