What is IndieCade Festival?
The IndieCade Festival is the premiere event dedicated to celebrating independent games in the nation. Now in its 10th year, IndieCade is held each October in the Los Angeles area and is open to the industry and to the public.
IndieCade Festival 2017, October 6th - 8th, offers a unique opportunity to play and preview over 200 of the latest innovative indie games of all types and from around the world. Attendees enjoy games, talks, and events with both creators of new titles, as well as legends from across the industry. In addition to the opportunity to play games from around the world and meet with their creators, IndieCade hosts an in-depth game developer summit, conference sessions, workshops, business networking, social activities, tournaments, and entertainment.
Experience New Games
The IndieCade Festival is a celebration of indie games, their creators, and innovation within the industry. We also curate and recognize those that we identify as the top indie games of the year and give attendees the chance to meet the creators of these amazing games. Hands-on gameplay includes IndieCade Award Winners, Nominees, and Special Selections, with digital, table, and real world titles.
The games span genres and platforms and truly push expectations.
