Independent games festival IndieCade East has announced that Rami Ismail from Vlambeer, developers of Ridiculous Fishing and Luftrauser, is the latest confirmed keynote speaker.
The festival is taking place at Museum of the Moving Image in New York from February 14–16, 2014. Rami joins fellow keynote speakers Bennett Foddy (QWOP) and Auriea Harvey, co-founder of Tale of Tales (The Path).
Rami Ismail co-founded Dutch indie studio Vlambeer in 2010 with Jan Willem Nijman. The studio has since released a succession of titles, including Super Crate Box, GUN GODZ, Luftrauser, Nuclear Throne and, of course, Ridiculous Fishing.
“We are honored to have Rami Ismail join our already excellent line-up of keynote speakers at IndieCade East,” said Matt Parker, Chair for IndieCade East. “Vlambeer’s projects represent the extraordinary works of the indie community and we are thrilled to champion and bring greater visibility of such works to the public and in inspiring current and next generation of creators on the possibilities.”
“After attending the inaugural event in 2013, I have been looking forward to visiting IndieCade East again this year. The event fostered an amazing sense of community amongst the independent developers attending, and I was impressed by how informative and inspiring the event and the environment were” said Rami Ismail.
IndieCade attendees will have the opportunity to network with the keynote speakers plus a multitude of other talented artists, developers, storytellers, and publishers.
