The fourth annual IndieCade East, the East Coast spinoff of the Los Angeles-based festival for independent games, will run from April 29 through May 1 in New York City, the event's organizers announced yesterday.
For the fourth consecutive year, IndieCade East will take place at the Museum of the Moving Image, which is located in the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, New York. The dates represent a change from the traditional scheduling for IndieCade East — during its first three years, the show took place in mid-February.
IndieCade East will be open to the public. The festival will include a conference running all weekend long, featuring panels and lectures given by game developers, academics, artists, journalists and others. The show will also offer many playable indie games, including a showcase of the 2015 IndieCade Festival winners, an esports tournament and an evening event for local multiplayer titles called Night Games. In addition, developers will present their projects throughout the weekend at Show & Tell demos.
Passes for the three-day festival are currently on sale at early-bird pricing for $100. After Feb. 29, the price will go up to $125. A representative for the Museum of the Moving Image told Polygon that it will be selling badges for individual days of IndieCade East, but not until closer to the event.
