“Supporting IndieCade means we keep getting an important spotlight on rad new creations from fantastic developers.”

— Alex Preston, co-creator of Hyper Light Drifter

"It’s my great pleasure to support IndieCade through membership. I'll always be grateful to the festival that was my first launch pad as a game developer, and my first introduction to a warm and welcoming community of other developers. IndieCade has always curated a much wider and more exciting variety of games and game-adjacent experiences than any other show I've been to, creating a unique atmosphere that feels both cozy and adventurous."

— Jason Roberts, creator of Gorogoa

"Indiecade is a festival that beautifully balances the need to get your game in front of press and players with the chance to have fun with other devs and generally revel in the exciting work that happens on the fringes of the games industry. I'm happy to support a show that has introduced me to so many great games and great people.”
