The IndieCade Festival is the premiere event dedicated to celebrating independent games. IndieCade offers the unique opportunity to play and preview hundreds of the latest indie games and innovations, many of which are seen first or can only be played at IndieCade. The Festival is filled with the opportunity to play a multitude of games from around the world, attend talks and events, interact with creators of new titles, as well as legends from across the industry, enjoy music, and so much more. IndieCade also hosts an in-depth game developer summit, conference sessions, educational workshops, business networking, social activities, tournaments, and entertainment.

Now in its 13th year, IndieCade will feature a robust festival lineup with gameplay, conference sessions, workshops, performances, screenings and interactive experiences for industry fans, gamers, students, professionals and developers. In addition to featuring this year’s nominated titles, IndieCade will showcase more than 100 of the most innovative, recent emerging indie games, playable across console, desktop and mobile platforms, as well as virtual and augmented reality experiences, escape room puzzles, tabletop games, performance art, sports, card games and live action role-playing. The return of Night Games will offer attendees the opportunity to explore the ultimate gaming playground and live arcade, with interactive games, tournaments and experiences playable under the moonlit sky. Keynotes will feature presenters and projects on the cusp of emerging industry trends, including a must-see discussion on “Participant Agency in Immersive Experiences: Playing the Accessible Unknown” with Meow Wolf Executive Producer Jenny Weinbloom and No Proscenium Editor Kathryn Yu. This year’s festival introduces UnConference, an expansion to IndieCade’s Signature Town Halls, a festival livestream by the Killer Queen Arcade designers, roundtables with the finalist artists and an all-new Educator Summit. Additional festival highlights will include presentations, conversations and discussions with top innovators in independent game creation that explore groundbreaking new ideas, trends and technologies.
