Indie Essentials Exhibit title

If you’re in Queens, NY, between now and March 2nd, be sure to check out this great exhibit.

On the third floor of the Museum of the Moving Image, from now until March 2, visitors can play 25 of the most critically-acclaimed indie games from the past 10 years. I set out for Astoria, Queens to spend an afternoon doing just that, and, as I suspected, I learned a thing or two about what games have to say about the museum experience.

The exhibit is titled “Indie Essentials: 25 Must-Play Videogames,” and it’s presented by both the museum and IndieCade, an international festival of independent games that has been called the Sundance of the videogame industry. Since 2009, game developers have gathered at IndieCade in Culver City, CA to showcase new indie titles and vie for awards in categories like design, story, sound, and impact. All 11 winners from IndieCade 2013 are on display in the Museum of the Moving Image, along with over a dozen other indie stand-outs, both old and new.
