Sony PlayStation Mobile IndieCade East GameJamImage from IndieCade's Tumblr

IndieCade wasn't all fun and games (okay, maybe it was); there was also people getting work done. Tucked away in the corner, next to the collection of honoree games, was a major player in the video game industry attempting to help some indie game developers get some much-needed exposure. Sony, one of the IndieCade East sponsors, was hosting a three-day long GameJam that leveraged their PlayStaion Mobile platform. The twelve teams that participated were competing to take their creations to GDC, and hopefully win a spot at Sony's booth at E3.

IndieCade East

The West Coast has been having all the fun since 2009. Sure, they have the sun and the surf (if you like that kind of thing), but up until last weekend, they had independent games as well. IndieCade, the internationally recognized festival of indie games had been staked out exclusively in Los Angeles for the last four years, leaving the East Coast gamers and devs to play by themselves. However, that all changed last weekend when IndieCade kicked off their inaugural East Coast expansion at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens. The three-day affair included many of the staples of the West Coast conference, including expert panels, workshops, keynotes, and most importantly games.
