The Sundance of Indie Games: Welcome to IndieCade

Feb 21, 2014

Each year, more and more independent game makers are trying to make their mark. IndieCade has stepped in to separate the wheat from chaff, curating and identifying the best that independent gaming has to offer.

The annual international festival began in 2005 in Bellvue, Washington, when less than a 100 developers in the US were creating independent games. As the indie gaming scene grew, so did the festival, eventually moving to Los Angeles.

In 2013, the festival added IndieCade East, a more intimate festival based in Queens, NY at the Museum of the Moving Image.
