NYU commissions more devs for 7th annual No Quarter game exhibition

Since there's no entry fee for No Quarter, these devs (Brandon Chung, Catt Small, Stephen Lawrence Clark and Holly Gramazio) are effectively being paid to make games people can then play for free.

This month sees the debut of the seventh annual No Quarter exhibition in Brooklyn, New York, where games commissioned by the NYU Game Center from devs Holly Gramazio, Brendon Chung, Catt Small and Stephen Lawrence Clark will be available for attendees to play.

While each game maker is notable in their own right, what makes this especially important is the fact that since there's no entry fee for No Quarter, these devs are effectively being paid to make games people can then play for free.

Such patronage on behalf of the public is still a relative rarity in the game industry, though it's not unheard of -- Matheson Marcault, for example (a game research/development outfit which Gramazio leads) recently had an interactive fiction game about the life of famous woman pilot Amy Johnson commissioned as part of the recent Amy Johnson Festival in the U.K. 

The other devs contributing games to this year's No Quarter exhibition have worked on games like Quadrilateral CowboySoulForm and Rooftop Cop. The exhibition is taking place October 28th at the Starr Space Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and it's free to RSVP.
