Indiecade Festival Names 36 Finalists For October Show
Indiecade Festival Names 36 Finalists For October Show
September 15, 2011 | By Kyle Orland

The organizers of the fifth annual Indiecade Festival have chosen 36 finalists from nearly 450 indie game submissions to be playable on the event's GameWalk October 8 and 9 in Culver City, CA.

The chosen titles range from professional projects like Gaijin Games' Bit.Trip Flux to more amateur efforts like Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure, a game designed by Untold Entertainment founder Ryan Creighton's five-year-old daughter at the annual TOJam festival.

Other prominent entrants include Superbrothers' iOS exploration title Sword & Sworcery EP, Demruth's surreal first-person puzzler Anitchamber, Polytron Corp.'s 2D/3D hybrid platformer Fez and fast-paced Rogue-like Desktop Dungeons.

All 36 finalists will be up for prizes at a Red Carpet Awards ceremony to be held Thursday, October 6.

Last year's IndieCade Festival saw 32 finalists, with prize winners including Terry Cavanaugh's gravity-defying platform title VVVVVV and "documentary game" The Cat and the Coup.
