Submissions Now Open for the Fifth-Annual IndieCade Festival

Submit Your Game & Spread the Word! Independent developers of interactive games from around the world are invited to submit games of all types, from tabletop to text-based, alternate reality to action-adventure, roguelike to real-time strategy, to genres not yet explored!

A diverse jury of art leaders, industry luminaries, and academics will review all entries and select finalists whose games will be featured at the 2012 IndieCade Festival. Finalists will be considered for 12 awards, with winners honored at a formal Red Carpet Awards ceremony; as well during the festival with a celebration of audience and gamemaker choice awards.

All teams who submit a game will receive a festival pass and will be eligible to attend IndieXchange, a daylong on-site event offering practical master classes in how to develop the business side of independent games, as well as networking opportunities with fellow gamemakers, publishers, arts leaders, and potential funders.

We hope you will spread the word to independent game developers of all stripes. Indiecade invites independent game artists, creators, and designers from around the world to submit interactive media – from art to commercial, ARG to abstract, mind-bending to mobile, serious to shooter – for consideration. We encourage works-in-progress. Please explore our website for the descriptions and success stories of past IndieCade finalists.
