IndieCade East

Friday, Feb 15 - Sunday, Feb 17, 2013

IndieCade, the country’s premier festival for independent video games, was launched in 2010 in California where it was called “the video game industry’s Sundance” by The Los Angeles Times. In 2013, the festival makes its East Coast debut in a jam-packed weekend at the Museum with dozens of playable IndieCade Official Selection games; presentations from designers, academics, and journalists including Kris Piotrowski (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP) and Doug Wilson (J.S. Joust); seminars and workshops for budding game makers led by industry experts; an arcade tournament; a presentation of games made during the festival-long game jam; a night of “big games”; and much more.
