IndieCade 2009 Festival will follow IndieCade showcase events, which will take place at E3 (Los Angeles), SIGGRAPH Sandbox (New Orleans), and IndieCade Europe (Nottingham). In 2008, IndieCade’s festival and series of showcase events were instrumental in securing industry recognition and public attention for, and the acquisition of its featured games, as well as highlighting the cultural significance of the games, the gamemakers, and the medium. IndieCade President Stephanie Barish adds: “Last year we were inspired to see our featured gamemakers making development and distribution deals with Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, THQ, Steam, and others, having their work shown in museums in New York and throughout Europe and receiving international media attention. This year there will be even more opportunities.” IndieCade is open to the public and draws a diverse audience of savvy professionals interested in cutting-edge digital media, game developers, publishers, artists, and enthusiasts of all ages.
