Juegos Rancheros, a new independent game collective in Austin, is putting together a free and public meetup at The Highball this Sunday where indie developers and others interested in the local scene will be able to gather, share drinks, and play games like Twisted Pixel's The Gunstringer.

This event will be the first in a monthly series hosted in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse's Fantastic Arcade, and is styled after similar indie groups/get-togethers like Toronto's Hand Eye Society, Montreal's Mount Royal Game Society, and Denmark's Copenhagen Game Collective.

The Austin collective includes developers like Adam 'Atomic' Saltsman, Renegade Kid, TigerStyle, and many others. Twisted Pixel is bringing the highlight game for this first meetup, as this will be the first time its Xbox 360/Kinect title The Gunstringer has had a playable demo for the public since March.

Flat Black Films' Bob Sabiston, creator of the Rotoshop rotoscoping software (used in Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly) and the recently released Inchworm Animation DSiWare app, will also be at the event showing off his new title. Oh, and make sure to bring your 3DS for StreetPass exchanges, too!
