MFA Games Selected in Out of Index and Indie Prize Festivals

NYU Game Center MFA Thesis games are being featured all over the world!

We’re excited to announce that “Soft Body” by Zeke Virant and “social_me” by Franziska Zeiner will be featured among the fourteen official selections in the 2014 Out of Index Fesitval in Seoul, Korea. Also featured in the festival is “One of Us” by a team of Game Center Undergraduate alumni, Adan Agha, Alexandre Gresh, and Vivian Allum, which was originally developed at the the Game Center’s 2014 Global Game Jam site. The Out of Index Festival celebrates new games that experiment with mechanics and live outside traditional genres. If you happen to be in Seoul on July 18th, stop by the Out of Index Festival to check out these games along with some of the world’s most innovative designs.

We’re also happy to announce that “The Spilts” by Ilya Zarembsky and “Gemini” by Atlas Chen and Nick Zhang will be featured in the 2014 Indie Prize Showcase and competing for the Indie Prize Award in San Francisco! Indie Prize features ninety games from over twenty countries in the world that exemplify the best in casual game design. The festival is run as a part of Casual Connect which annually brings together the most talented and knowledgeable experts in the casual gaming field to further the casual games industry. The showcase will be taking place July 22-24 if you’re interested in checking out the next generation of casual games!
