Support and benefit from your favorite indie institution!

IndieCade exists to support the independent development community and to shine a light on diverse and expansive work from around the world.

Memberships provide the crucial support to make this mission possible, while providing complimentary and discounted submissions, tickets, and showcase opportunities, written game feedback, and participation in special activities like developer days, show and tells, and IndieCade Horizons.

IndieCade Anywhere and Everywhere Festival 2023 will again take place on Steam!

We get many questions about this and want to be clear. If you are interested in taking part this festival via the steam platform here are your options:

Submit your game: All nominated games will be featured front and center at our festival and thus our Steam event. It is important to remember that this is a juried competition and only games that are nominated will be featured in this way. Submitting your game is not a guarantee of selection.

    IndieCade Alumni: Any past IndieCade Nominee/Award Winning game can join the sale! Also, one of the many benefits of the Developer level (and higher) membership tier is that, as alumni, you are not limited to only providing games that were part of IndieCade.

    Developer Plus Members: One of the many benefits of the Developer Plus level membership tier is that you will receive one complimentary submission to IndieCade Festival !! Additionally, you are eligible to participate in the Festival (this year on Steam).
