Boston Festival of Indie Games
On September 22nd, MIT and Boston Indies will join forces to debut the Boston Festival of Indie Games. This event, held on the MIT campus grounds, is one part showcase, one part celebration of independent game development.
The event will be free to attend and open to the pubic, and will feature games of both the digital and non-digital spectrum. The day-long festival is to feature a 12-hour long game jam, digital art exhibit, film screenings, and special guest speakers from independents across the nation, as well as a special showcase to highlight student projects from MIT. As a number of these games have seem commercial success, perhaps you have already played a few?
This festival is a grand opportunity for independents to showcase their work, reach a larger audience, and receive a level of feedback normally denied to small studios. Attendees will be able to vote on game entries, allowing a metric for comparison against other events. For any independents who might be considering submitting a video game to this event, the entry fee is $15, with a $5 discount for students.
The day-long festival is preceded by the MIT Game Lab Symposium, a gathering of professionals and academics in the field of Game Design centered around the latest developments in our beloved industry.
