September 12, 2014 | By Alex Wawro

The folks who run IndieCade have announced the finalists for this year's festival, which is set to take place October 9-12 in Culver City, CA.

Festival organizers saw more than a thousand submissions for the event, which has grown to become an annual showcase for the indie game developer community.

Past IndieCade finalists have included Messhof's Nidhogg, The Fullbright Company's Gone Home, Giant Sparrow's The Unfinished Swan, Polytron's Fez, and Matt Thorson's TowerFall.

This year, conference organizers selected 36 games as finalists for IndieCade awards and named an additional 70+ games as IndieCade "Selects" that are eligible for a limited subset of audience, media, and developer choice awards. You can find a complete rundown of these "Select" titles over on the IndieCade games page.
