This year’s selection emerges from an ever-diversifying spectrum of games. Social gaming is also becoming a more prevalent theme in games that are submitted. If some of the titles seem a little off-the-beaten-path, keep in mind that previous finalists have included Braid, Fez, Limbo and Guacamelee.

Finalists and winning games will be on hand at a Culver City fire station. Wristbands to access the IndieCade village can be purchased for $20. This grants access to the Village, all games on exhibit, as well as gaming tournaments, seminars and the final awards ceremony.

For those looking to learn about creating games, IndieCade’s Game U. The courses will cover several aspects pertaining to the industry, including developer tools and strategies. Participants will also have a chance to meet with successful developers. Access to Game U can be acquired for $125 USD, though students with ID can attend for $65 USD.
