IndieCade East 2013 will be the first event from the organization to be held on the other side of the country. While the regular event is hosted yearly in Los Angeles, this new festival will take place in New York City and puts emphasis on getting the general public more involved. As always, IndieCade will have plenty of unique and innovative independent games on display from developers all over.
One of these titles is Tengami by Nyamyam, a beautiful 2D/3D adventure game that’s inspired by Japanese arts and crafts and ancient fairy tales with a darker tone. The game looks visually stunning and packs a wonderfully composed soundtrack, but its unique mechanic of interacting with a paper crafted pop-up world is what really sets it apart. If you’re going to be at the event, definitely give Tengami a look.
Other great titles that we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know will also be at IndieCade East. Some of these include the unique puzzler Gorogoa by Jason Roberts, the Mexican wrestler beat-em-up Guacamelee! by DrinkBox Studios, and the biological brain twister Splice by Cipher Prime. All of these games offer some great experiences and are a great representation of what the indie scene has to offer to our industry.
IndieCade East 2013 will be take place from February 15 to February 17 and will be hosted at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. If you’re in the area and want to see how artistic games can be, then definitely drop on by.
