It’s that time once again where the industry comes together to celebrate everything indie at IndieCade East.
For those who don’t know, IndieCade is the premier indie games festival and IndieCade East is held every year at the Museum of Moving Image in New York City. The event brings together the latest and greatest in the indie games scene including panels, guest speakers, workshops, and of course, the show room floor.
