The NYU Game Center is proud to announce that the fifth annual No Quarter Exhibition will premiere next month and run from September 19th to the 21st. Featuring four new games from established and emerging independent game developers, this year’s show will be hosted at the new Waka Waka space in the Lower East Side in Manhattan.
This year’s No Quarter will feature four new games by veteran and rising New York stars:
Dog Park by Kevin Cancienne
A local multiplayer dog-em-up! Become a dog as you chase, wrestle, cavort and gambol with other players in a chaotic struggle to have as much fun as you can.
Slam City Oracles by Jane Friedhoff
A dance apocalypse simulator! Part Katamari, part Slave of God, and part Rampage, SCO is about dancing so hard you tear down a city in the process.
Consentacle by Naomi Clark
A card game for two players about trust, communication, sex, and non-standard body parts.
Corporate Vandals by Shawn Allen
A fast paced turf warfare game using stickers on a board to spread your brand across the city of East Fulton (aka Beatdown City) and gain street cred.
Each of these games will be available to the public from the 19th to the 21st.
Please join us on the evening of September 19th at the Waka Waka space for the premiere party where you can play the new games for the first time, meet the creators, and have a drink with some of the most interesting people in the New York City game scene!
Waka Waka is a new home for New York’s indie game community. A game incubator, event and co-working space, Waka Waka is located in a bright 2,000 square foot storefront at 26 Clinton Street in the heart of Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
Each year the No Quarter Exhibition premieres a small selection of games in New York which have been commissioned by the NYU Game Center from independent game designers and developers all over the world.
In the five years since the Exhibition was created it has helped fund the production of 18 games in total, including the award winners like Nidhogg and Hokra. Developers who have premiered new work at No Quarter include Terry Cavanagh, Zach Gage, Margaret Robertson, Ramiro Corbetta, Sophie Houlden, Bennett Foddy and Jan Willem Nijman. Each new work was created for the specific, social gallery setting of the Exhibition which brings out hundreds of people and is one of the anchoring events of the New York City independent game community.
The No Quarter Exhibition is always free, and open to the public.
