Nidhogg headlines eSports lineup at IndieCade East 2014

Nidhogg, the multiplayer fencing game from Messhof, is one of seven indie titles to be featured in the eSports Showcase at IndieCade East 2014, the event's organizers announced today.

Instead of the usual eSports fare such as League of Legends or StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, IndieCade's eSports Showcase will focus on, appropriately, fast-paced local multiplayer titles developed by small teams. In addition to Nidhogg, the showcase will include Laza Knitez from Glitchnap; Particle Mace by Andy Wallace; Foiled by Gabe Cuzzillo and Aaron Taecker-Wyss; Stikbold from Reign Bros.; Gunsport from Necrosoft Games; and Videoball from Action Button Entertainment. The showcase will be available Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 15-16.

On Saturday night, IndieCade East attendees will be able to play those titles and more in Night Games, which will run from 7-10 p.m. ET. Night Games will feature live-action games, multiplayer titles and projections of upcoming indie games, along with an eSports competition, the Saturday Night Rumble. The full list of Night Games is available on the IndieCade East website.

"This evening event is especially indicative of the breadth and depth of indie games available for fans of all ages and skill levels. Even if you've never played a game before, you will have a blast at IndieCade East," said IndieCade East chair Matt Parker.

IndieCade East will run from Feb. 14-16 at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, N.Y. Keynote speakers include Vlambeer's Rami Ismail and Die Gute Fabrik's Bennett Foddy. Early bird tickets are available now.
