The organizers behind the annual IndieCade indie games festival have revealed the list of games being considered for awards ahead of this year’s event.
In previous years, IndieCade has recognized games for outstanding design as well as impactful content and counts 1979 Revolution: Black Friday, Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor, and Hyper Light Drifter among its recent award recipients.
This year, 36 games have been nominated for recognition and, as with years past, the games selected represent a number of different genres, themes, and platforms. Each of the nominees will be showcased at the upcoming IndieCade Festival in Los Angeles on October 6-8.
“This year, as we celebrate our milestone 10th anniversary festival, we truly honor the talented individuals around the world who continue to create the most unique and artistic independent games,” said IndieCade CEO Stephanie Barish. “From thought-provoking titles that explore real world issues, to live-action RPGs that bring people together in communal experiences, this year’s selections reflect the strength and ingenuity of the community, and we’re proud to showcase top emerging talent.”
The full list of this year’s nominees can be found below, while the yet-growing list of games being shown at the event can be found on IndieCade’s website.
