IndieCade Showcase @ E3 2019

IndieCade Takeover of the E3 eSports Zone!

This year at E3, IndieCade organized an eSports tournament experimenting with bringing the best of the innovation, artistry, and off-the-wall designs of the IndieCade festival to the format of competitive online streamed play. The game’s selected for this showcase celebrate the diversity and glory and fun of IndieCade – WaveBreak, a festival alumni game that is perfect for competitive high score and performative streamed play, Sloppy Forgeries, a game that experiments with competition along a different angle than most traditional games, while still creating a highly tense focused experience, and Killer Queen Black, a game developed lovingly and iteratively through the festival, which embodies modern theories of worldbuilding, local co-op play and has built its own strong arcade cabinet driven league before finally being released in a PC version this year.

The Showcase

The IndieCade booth at E3 is a yearly opportunity for the innovation and artistry focused independent games community to share their off-the-beaten-track, new, unique, and experimental games with the larger games industry. Our curation targets the surprise and delight of the larger video games industry, and seeks to provide a contrast of individuality, varietal tones, and a multitude of experiences.
