The BEST way to support your favorite indie institution

Maybe over the years you've attended, spoken at, sponsored, or shown a game at an IndieCade event in Los Angeles, Paris, New York, Seattle, or elsewhere. Maybe you've done a game jam, reclined in the E3 booth, or volunteered at any of these events. If so, you know that IndieCade has always been much more than its marquee festivals. We've also run one of the most important juried competitions in the game industry for more than 15 years, bringing jury feedback and connections to game teams of all sizes. For 15 years we've innovated ways to bring gamemakers together to jam, meet, build and join teams, promote their work, and get games into the world.

In 2020, with in-person events in hibernation, Membership is your year-round place to connect with those who care about indie games and the most essential indie game festival. And it’s the best way to support this organization and make sure it withstands the covid-19 era bigger and better than ever.

Benefits

Membership has its perks! It comes with the below benefits, in addition to additional online happenings beyond the IndieCade "Anywhere and Everywhere" worldwide festival in October.

Your membership will make sure you're in the middle of one of the game industry's most dynamic and creative communities. We hope you'll join today, both for what you can get out of it, but also to support your favorite game community in everything that we do.

Patronages

If you’d like to support IndieCade at a higher level, please contact us about Patronages, an IndieCade tradition. Distinct from Sponsorships, Individuals or organizations can become patrons with a contribution of $500 or more per year. Patronages come with “Developer Plus” benefits, and include a two-week submission deadline extension. Depending on contribution level, we can customize a “Developer-Plus-Plus-Plus” plan, but the principal idea of Patronages is to give back to IndieCade so we can better support our community moving forward.

IndieCade thanks all Patrons throughout our history! You’ve helped support our events, key activities such as the jury and the game feedback it provides, networking, and the other aspects of our work that have had an impact on a generation of indie game developers.

You can reach out to us about becoming a Patron through our Patronage Info Form or by emailing us at members@indiecade.com.


“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.”
