2023 FESTIVAL SUBMISSIONS
The Late Submissions deadline has passed, but we have received many requests for deadline extensions. Given the demand we are allowing extensions through the end of the day June 18th.
LATE SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE HAS PASSED
EXTENDED DEADLINE: June 18th, 2023
FESTIVAL DATES: October, 2023
Submissions for our 2023 season include our online Festival – IndieCade Anywhere and Everywhere, as well as consideration for any and all in-person events, as well as our ongoing streaming features and activities for the year.
IndieCade Anywhere and Everywhere Festival 2023 will again take place on Steam!
All nominated games will be featured front and center. We want to be clear that submitting your game is not a guarantee, you must be selected as a nominee to be featured, if you are not selected, you will not be featured at the Festival on Steam unless you are an IndieCade Member at the developer Plus tier or an IndieCade Alumni. It is also important to know that if your game is not on steam it is still eligible to be showcased at the festival and we make sure to provide customize experiences and exposure for Alt control, tabletop, immersive theater and more.
IndieCade accepts and features a wide spectrum of games and experiences including tabletop, VR, AR, Escape Rooms, Zoom Games, mobile, traditional digital games, and more — regardless of platform, style, experience, or background, and we especially encourage work-in-progress, as well as, completed projects.
IndieCade Anywhere and Everywhere is IndieCade’s online festival for 2023 and will be held in the fall, dates TBA. This online event is built from the ground up specifically to highlight and feature games of all types, along with their creators, from around the world.
