Nintendo Supports Independent Game Developers At IndieCade East

Nintendo is heading to IndieCade East this weekend to showcase some of the coolest independent video games for its systems. IndieCade East also gives Nintendo an opportunity to meet with as many East Coast developers as possible. The show, which runs Feb. 13-15 at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, offers three days of workshops, speakers and hands-on time with games from independent developers.

Nintendo is scheduled to show off the following content:

  • IronFall: Invasion from VD-Dev: This Nintendo 3DS exclusive takes full advantage of the C Stick features of the New Nintendo 3DS XL system for better aiming. The game supports online and local multiplayer for up to six players, for fast and frantic fun.
  • Moon Chronicles from Renegade Kid: An update is now available for this critically acclaimed first-person game, designed to fully use the extra control options available on New Nintendo 3DS XL – including the C Stick and new ZL and ZR Buttons.
  • Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse from WayForward: This game is now available in the Nintendo eShop, but Nintendo will be showing off updates that take advantage of New Nintendo 3DS XL.
  • Gunman Clive 2 from Hörberg Productions: This Nintendo 3DS exclusive has a strong following, and its loyal fans have been hungry to check out this sequel, which launched Jan. 29 in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS.
  • Affordable Space Adventures from KnapNok Games and Nifflas Games: This suspenseful stealth puzzling Wii U exclusive features co-op play and will be playable at the show.
  • Swords & Soldiers II from Ronimo Games: This side-scrolling strategy game, which is a Wii U exclusive and features local multiplayer, will be on hand at the show.
  • Elliot Quest from PlayEveryWare: An 8-bit retro RPG game with a hero on a quest to cure his curse of immortality. Explore Urele Island and uncover its secrets when this game launches in March, exclusively in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
  • Blek from Broken Rules & kunabi brother: Imagination and creativity come to life in this beautiful award-winning puzzle game that launched on Feb. 12 in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

Damon Baker, Nintendo of America’s senior manager of Licensing, will also be hosting a seminar titled “Self-Publishing with Nintendo.” Indie game makers can learn how to work with Nintendo and learn what it takes to get their games published in the ever-expanding Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

  1. Now Nintendo..

    If your plan is someday to “clean out” your image with a bit more mature games and if you are heading for the indies. Look out game called Darkest Dungeon in Steam. That game would fit perfectly under Nintendo console and I would bet that there would be audience as well.. Would love to see.. Would be great..

    1. There are a great many indie games on steam Nintendo should get their hands on. All those 2D indie games like Mad Father, To the Moon, Clarie, actually most of the 2D indie games Cryaotic plays would be good, IMO.

      But no matter what people say or think, indie games are great!
