IndieCade balloons

We at Wide Lantern had a blast at the last IndieCade independent game developers festival.  Submissions are now being accepted for developer-artist-designers who want to exhibit at this year’s fest.  Here are details from the IndieCade team.  We hope to see you there — 2012’s event is scheduled for October 4 – 7 in Culver City, CA — and maybe even watch you win an award….


Submissions for IndieCade’s 2012 International Festival of Independent Games are now open at the IndieCade website:

IndieCade invites independent game artists and designers from around the world to submit interactive games of all types. Works-in-progress are encouraged.

IndieCade programs are designed to bring visibility to and facilitate the production of new works in the independent game community.

“Our mission is to spotlight the best cutting-edge work and the most innovative game designs –often thriving at the fringes of the game industry,” Stephanie Barish, CEO, IndieCade explains. “Our goal is to bring public as well as industry attention to exciting, innovative games, created by independent developers.”

Games selected will be spotlighted at the annual IndieCade Festival, Oct. 4 – 7, 2012; featured on IndieCade’s website and promoted via social media. Finalists will be considered  for more than 12 categories, with winners honored at a formal awards ceremony during the fall festival.

Game-makers selected as finalists will receive two VIP all-access tickets to IndieCade 2012, including admission to the awards celebration and all VIP receptions and social events.

Any team that submits a game receives a main festival pass; an invitation to participate in IndieXchange, a day long program offering  practical workshops, networking opportunities and  one-on-one meetings with art leaders, publishers and potential funders.
