We've been playing games at the Greenbelt festival for over a decade. Whether it's been as part of their various worship services with Flower, having fun on the lawn with Joust Mania, or finding some time out with Passage and Bury Me My Love, video games have worked really well at this yearly arts festival.Greenbelt festival describes itself as somewhere artistry meets activism, where the political meets the practical. We’re somewhere to come together once a year, where we’re as likely to dream up a better world as we are to dance and debate, to pray and to party. We were founded a long time ago by a bunch of misfits in a field. We’re still in a field. And we’re still somewhere that welcomes anyone and everyone. This list includes 5 games from the last 12 years, with 352 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to play games in tents.
