Or just play for fun. Whatever, I'm not your dad
IndieCade is taking place in New York City from February 14 through February 16. It'll be a good chance to support some indies, and play their games. Titles like Laza Knitez, Particle Mace, Foiled, Stikbold, Gunsport, Nidhogg, and Videoball will all be on offer as part of the eSports lineup for folks to kick other folks butts in.
Other games that you'll be able to play during the event include Crypt of the NecroDancer, Surround, Tehter, Zombie Ward, Soundself, and ART BOY Sin.
If you're at all interested in attending you can purchase tickets now, which are discounted until January 31 for early bird purchases. Individual day passes will also be available if you can't afford to throw down that much.
