What is IndieCade?

We here at IndieCade are dedicated to the discovery, development and recognition of independent artists and developers from around the world. Our mission is to encourage, promote and cultivate innovation and artistry in interactive media and to champion those efforts.

IndieCade Festival: Our flagship festival featuring indie games from around the world, our annual award show celebrating the winners, and a three-day conference in beautiful Culver City, California. October 22-25, 2015.

IndieCade @ E3: Our showcase at E3 poses a selection of indie games alongside games by the biggest studios in the industry. June 16-18, 2015.

IndieCade East: Why should the West Coast have all the fun? IndieCade East is the festival’s sarcastic, all-black-wearing cousin. February 13-15, 2015 (Passed).

We also hold events and showcases around the year, such as the Leap Motion 3D Jam presented by IndieCade.

IndieCade East Was Spectacular!

This year's IndieCade East was by far the best, biggest, and fullest! People came from all over the East Coast, Europe, Canada, and South America to brave the cold together. The museum was buzzing with several different languages and speckled with colorful hairstyles. People played all over the museum, showed games at Show and Tell, got wild at Night Games, and shared ideas that will - no doubt - be echoed in future discussions throughout the games community. IndieCade continues to pioneer, curate, and bring together the best and most innovative games in the world!
