Games at IndieCade East

The Love & Rejection Exhibit examines games that deal with the most basic of human desires - love and affection, and those that attain to our highest of purposes - cultural and intellectual argument. Love will highlight games inspired by, about, and inspiring love - games that cause human to human interactions or make us reflect on what it means to love. Rejection will highlight games whose cultural message, edgy content, or instrumentalized purpose caused them to be rejected from public showing, whether from an app store, a public exhibit, or any release at all. Together these exhibits ask the audience to confront the power of games, and their unique ability to model and create human experiences.
