This Thursday, the NYU Game Center will bring back the No Quarter Exhibition of Games for its second year -- the 2010 event was where Mark "Messhof" Essen unveiled his acclaimed dueling game and Independent Games Festival award winner Nidhogg.

For 2011, No Quarter will feature commissioned games from VVVVVV creator Terry Cavanagh, Ramiro Corbett (worked on IGF Mobile award winner Glow Artisan while at Powerhead), and game designer Charley Miller.

This year's No Quarter will also see the debut of NYC Winnitron, a free-to-play custom arcade cabinet loaded with independent games, which was modeled after the Torontron/Winnitron machines that serve the indie scenes in Toronto and Winnipeg.

All of the above attractions will be at 'No Quarter 7PM opening party on May 12, and will be on display at the NYU Game Center for the public to try out until the end of the month.
