2009 Indie Game Report #3 - Indiecade 2009
One of the best things at this years' E3 was Indiecade
Indiecade is a group that puts on events to showcase and
independent games and indie game developers. It accomplishes this by
staging a series on international events in which the craft and passion
behind indie game creations can be experienced by the masses. The
masses at E3 this year were treated to some very cool games in a
relaxing lounge-like environment. It was usually pretty full of people,
but we were able to kick it for a few minutes and try out some of the
cool games on offer.
As you can tell, thus is our own crappy video, so please don't blame
the games if we made them look like doo doo.

Broken Rules Team)
This is a very sweet looking retro 3d platformer with some new twists.
It is set in the world of a ripped paper collage.

unique and fun looking retro 2d platformer with a line drawing look and
feel. It may look simple, but the music and animation are
short or mesmerizingly beautiful.

the ground up in C++.
