One of the largest gatherings for independent game developers is coming to NYC later this winter. Taking place at the Museum of the Moving Image February 16th & 17th, IndieCade is a must attend event for anyone interested in the art and craft of game design. This marks the first time that the event heads east as it is usually held on the west coast.
For those new to game design, IndieCade east will feature a special section called Game U.
From the IndieCade site
Game U is a special program from IndieCade that focuses on pulling back the curtain on the game development process, and the work that game designers do. Specially designed for a diverse audience from entertainment and media professionals who want to learn about the game development process to amateur game creators who are considering trying to become professional.
IndieCade’s Game U sessions will take place during IndieCade East (February 15 – 17, 2012, in New York City), and will cover an introduction to game development tools, processes, and roles, as well as opportunities to meet working professionals in the game industry.
