IndieCade@E3 2010

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , — Jamie Love @ 2:31 pm

For anyone needing a breath of fresh air on the show floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center next week, I just got our friendly reminder that IndieCade (The International Festival of Independent Games) will be there (West Hall 4344) to highlight games from their 2010 call for submissions.

Past IndieCade awardees include titles such as the Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom and Machinarium, so it’s the kind of thing we here like keeping an eye on.

What should we expect this year? Catch the press details after the break to find out.

“With IndieCade’s third annual independent game festival scheduled for October 8-10 in neighboring Culver City, a diverse collection of novel games have captured the attention of jurors engaged in the rigorous IndieCade selection process. Only a selection of these independent E3 titles may appear at the IndieCade Festival, although each is actively shaping the future of digital gaming.

The E3 2010 Highlights will include past winners — the Copenhagen Game Collective and Canadian game-making wunderkind Erin “The Ivy” Robinson. The independent game community continues to blossom and this year’s E3 Showcase will feature daring new voices, such as a counter-conventional game by Alexander Bruce of Australia; a “neo-noir” exploration by UCLA’s Joshua Nuernberger; a spatially divisive game by New Yorker Mark ten Bosch; a digital sand castle by a husband and wife team from Korea Arcshock; an intentionally bewildering entry by UK’s GLPeas; a “rogue-like” work by Canadian Jeff Lait; outstanding collaborative projects by students from Georgia Tech and USC and a project by Farbs, an Australian, occupying the coveted space directly between Myst and Wikipedia. “
