We here at IndieCade are dedicated to the discovery, development and recognition of independent artists and developers from around the world. Our mission is to encourage, promote and cultivate innovation and artistry in interactive media and to champion those efforts.
IndieCade Festival: Our flagship festival featuring indie games from around the world, our annual award show celebrating the winners, and a three-day conference in beautiful Culver City, California. October 10-12, 2014.
IndieCade East: Why should the West Coast have all the fun? IndieCade East is the festival’s sarcastic, all-black-wearing cousin. February 13-15, 2015.
IndieCade @ E3: Our showcase at E3 poses a selection of indie games alongside games by the biggest studios in the industry. June 10-12, 2014.
We also hold events and showcases around the year, such as the Leap Motion 3D Jam presented by IndieCade.
The third annual IndieCade East will take place at the Museum of the Moving Image from February 13-15th. That's Valentine's Day Weekend! The museum will be full of exhibits, including curated selections from IndieCade such as eSports and the 3D Jam, as well as conferences, workshops, and a show-and-tell. More info coming soon!
Submit a talk to IndieCade East! The Chairs are looking for proposals regarding, in particular, the following topics:
Indie Games’ Second Wave: Indie games have been around long enough that there are old-timers and newcomers. Who are the new generation of creators trying to break through in a different landscape?
The Other Indies: There are many people making interactive art not traditionally thought of as indie games, from modders to interactive fiction writers. How do they enrich the world of indie games?
The games from the Leap Motion #3DJam presented by IndieCade will be showcased at IndieCade East! The games are competing for over $75,000 in cash and prizes, including travel fare to New York for winning contestants. All winning games will be on display at the Museum of the Moving Image during the festival.
