Night Games East, chaired by Greg Trefry (Come Out & Play) and co-hair Aaron Isaksen will be an exciting mix of live action games, pick-up-and-play multiplayer video games, large theater projections of upcoming indie games, theatrical games, and our Saturday Indie eSports Saturday Night Rumble hosted by Simon Ferrarri (IndieCade eSports Commissioner).
Crypt of the NecroDancer is a hardcore roguelike rhythm game. Move to the beat of the game's epic soundtrack (or play with your own MP3s) while battling dancing skeletons, zombies, dragons, and more!

Tether is a competitive battle game where the first player to collect 10 orbs wins. The catch is that all four players are attached with chains. You have to work *with* your enemies to win!
Pickpocket is an analog game of stealth, subterfuge, and finesse. Players line their pockets with cloth “mark” strips and try to steal them off each other without being noticed. Be careful; if you get caught you’ll have to find another target. Wait until your mark is distracted, then make your move!
Those who find themselves with many strips may find themselves to be a bigger target. Stay alert! At the end of the game, the player with the most strips is winner and top thief!"
Fight your way through the rough-and-tumble streets of Nashville. Send secret signals, form alliances, and take down your enemies, all with your wits and a hand of five card stud.

Bottleneck is a chaotic physical game for 30+ players. Make sets to complete development tasks before anyone else. But watch out! If you’re in a car crash, becoming a patient can really set you back. The boisterous group game is designed as a playful intervention about road safety for humanitarian and development conferences.
To make it big in the underground fight scene, you’ll have to collaborate with the untrustworthy. Fight and bet your way to riches! Shouting and trash-talking is encouraged. Colluding and deceiving may be necessary.
Explore a hypnotic world of light and sound that feels like it’s emerging directly from your body. Soundself will be presented in a special format for a large screen in one of our theaters.
Throughout the day Saturday, stop by the Indie eSports Showcase to try out some games, build a crew, and prove your skills. Only the best players will be selected for finals matches on the big screen accompanied by emcees, adoring spectators, and glorious prizes (well... trophies and a photo opportunity with the game developers, at least).
