IndieCade GameSlam 2014

Sixteen games.
One hundred seconds.
An indie, a URL, and a microphone.
IndieCade presents a show of games in the fine tradition of poetry slams. Sixteen indies will take the stage at once. Armed only with a microphone, each will have 100 seconds to present their game in any manner they choose - pitch, spoken word poetry, song, perhaps dance.

Submit by October 9th Here

Co-hosted by Teddy Diefenbach (Hyper Light Drifter / Kyoto Wild) and Ashly Burch (Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin' / Borderlands 2) the high-speed show will whet appetites for games nearly ready for the festival lights. October 11th at 4:30pm (Game Slam art by Ryan Cousins)

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

We are seeking 16 indies to take the stage and present their games. We’re looking both for interesting in-progress games, and a creative way of presenting them to make for a fun stage show. You will have no projection or means of graphical aid, so your challenge is to wield your words, showmanship, and any sweet props you may care to utilize.

Requirements

  • Game must be unreleased.
  • Game must be in-development
  • Game must have a website and a video. (We’ll display the URL during your 100 seconds)
  • Game must not be an IndieCade finalist this year.
