IndieCade is pleased to provide full and reduced submission fee assistance to a limited number of applicants for IndieCade SUBMISSIONS.

The IndieCade team cares deeply about providing accessibility and opportunities to as many people as possible who wish to submit their games to IndieCade. Submission fee assistance is specifically reserved for game creators in financial need. Additionally we understand that as an international event we do not all live in the same economy and it is our goal to make applying to IndieCade as universal as possible. All individuals who need financial assistance with the IndieCade submission application are eligible to apply.

Submission fee assistance is made possible thanks to the generosity of the IndieCade community. If you would like to contribute to this submission fee assistance fund, no matter the amount, please contact us at It is appreciated and the results are clearly seen in the diversity of games and creators we are able to showcase each year.

We highly recommend that you fill out your game submission as completely as possible while you wait for the final decision on your Fee Assistance application. Fee Assistance will not be provided as a refund for an already paid submission.

For additional information about the IndieCade Submissions process, please see our SUBMISSIONS page and HELP SECTION.
