IndieCade East events include talks, game jam, indie game showcase

IndieCade East will fill New York's Museum of the Moving Image with indie games and all kinds of events about them, including lectures, a game jam and an indie game showcase, from Feb. 15-17, the event's organizers announced today.

The first IndieCade outside of the U.S. West Coast, IndieCade East will bring noted game developers like Capybara Games' Kris Piotrowski (Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP) and Die Gute Fabrik's Doug Wilson (Johann Sebastian Joust) to the Museum, which is located in Astoria, Queens, for lectures over the course of its three-day run. Workshops will be available for potential developers to learn the craft. An indie game showcase will allow attendees to play 20 IndieCade Official Selection games from IndieCade 2012 last October.

One of the highlights of the Museum as a venue for IndieCade is its Spacewar! Video Games Blast Off exhibition, which Polygon visited during its opening last year. During IndieCade, the exhibit area will host a 10-game arcade tournament. A game jam will run for the duration of the festival, while a few locals — students and faculty from the NYU Game Center and Parsons The New School for Design — will take part in a competition to design a game in one hour.

Check out the IndieCade website for all the details on IndieCade East, including the full schedule, the list of speakers, the games being shown at the festival and ticketing information.
