New Release: IndieCade: A History

The ETC Press is proud to announce the release of IndieCade: A History — The Interdependence of Independents, by Celia Pearce.

IndieCade: A History — The Interdependence of Independents chronicles the story of IndieCade as told by one of its three co-founders—its modest beginnings and evolving role in the larger independent games ecosystem over its decade-plus history. More broadly, it situates IndieCade within a historical context, looking at the various factors of the indie ecosystem that have contributed to making independent games writ large such a major force in today’s video game industry.
