IndieCade East 2015
Feb 13 — Feb 15, 2015
Three days of talks, panels, and workshops that cover theories of games and play, discussions about the future of the medium, and practical concerns for new and emerging game makers. This year’s sessions focus on diversity, storytelling, the “third wave” of independent games, and creators who have not traditionally been thought of as being game makers, but to whom the art and craft of independent games owes much. Visit each individual ICE page for descriptions or view the complete schedule here.
Night Games (Saturday only)
IndieCade East’s annual party fills the Museum’s spaces with social, physical, performative, and persistent games late into the evening. From large projections to improvisational theater games, Night Games turns the Museum into one big indie arcade.
Play new competitive games or cheer along as commentators narrate the exciting action. Tournaments all weekend long will crown champions of the indie videosports of tomorrow.
Show and Tell Lounge (Saturday and Sunday)
Be the first to see brand new games in development and share your feedback with their creators as you learn about their processes and inspirations. Or sign up to present your own game and put it in front of hundreds of eager players (Saturday and Sunday only).
Play new independent titles made for the Sony PlayStation 4, Vita and the Nintendo Wii U; experiment with some of Facebook’s recent releases; try new games coming out of independent studio JunkLatch, Long Island University, and the NYU Game Center.
