Indiecade Winners

October 18th, 2011 by

It’s the holiday season, so games are coming fast and furious. Some of the best stuff isn’t produced by AAA developers, though. Indiecade, an independent games festival, Is there in the autumn months to remind you which games deserve watching, whether they have millions in their advertising budgets or not.

Actually, unlike GDC, Indiecade would prefer that you didn’t have a huge budget.

Thirteen games were chosen by a panel of experts for honors at this year’s festival, and these are games to watch. Some are finished, some are polished, and some are a little bit bizarre. So pick a category to suit your interests, and you may find a game to love.
