We are accepting game submissions for IndieCade Festival 2015
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

About Us

IndieCade is organized by an expansive team of dedicated individuals who truly believe that we can make an impact on the industry and ultimately the way the world plays, understands, and is impacted by games. To this end, IndieCade supports independent game development and a series of international events showcasing the future of games. There are a few things we'd like you to know about us:

Volunteer workforce

Members of the community work together to support IndieCade because we love games. We want games to be recognized for their innovation and artistry. We all work to help create a public perception of games as rich, diverse, artistic, and culturally significant. We believe that this can change the industry and the world.

Open and inclusive community

As long as you are interested in games that challenge, expand horizons, and are enjoyable then you are a welcome addition to the IndieCade community.

Sponsor supported

Even with the volunteer support, putting on the festival takes hundreds of thousands of dollars. IndieCade is 100% independent. This means we aren’t owned by a major corporation and must find appropriate sponsors in order to make this festival happen every year. When we partner with a sponsor we work hard to make sure that we stick to our commitment to showcasing and bringing to public quality and meaningful games.

Teams

Thank you to our teams who thoughtfully put in long hours to make IndieCade a reality!
