IndieCade: EAST!

on Thursday, Feb. 7th

The annual IndieCade in Culver City is one of the highlights of my reporting year, and it happens just blocks from the office. Now gamers and DIY-game developers on the East Coast can enjoy the festival in their backyard when IndieCade East opens next week in Astoria, New York at the Museum of the Moving Image.

The usual combination of video games, workshops, tabletop games, speakers, and the famous night games will be available for the public to enjoy. IndieCade East runs the 15-17th. Tickets are on-sale at the Museum of the Moving Image box office.
