This weekend, Austin indie collective Juegos Rancheros will host an event showcasing a live demo for Lost Mars, a new game from Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor developer Tiger Style Games.

Spider was an App Store standout, combining a unique gameplay mechanic with an understated narrative. It's one of my favorite iOS games, and I have high hopes for its follow-up, which Juegos Rancheros organizer Brandon Boyer describes as "one part Metroid, one part 1970's-era sci-fi film, and one part...gardening?!" Sounds good to me!

The event will begin at 4:00 PM on Sunday, September 4th, at The Highball in Austin, Texas.
