IndieCade is almost here! Almost here! Almost here!
IndieCade, the international festival of indepedant games will be opening its doors again in downtown Culver City in just a few short weeks. (October 4-7th to be precise). Once again it will be sure to be a lively weekend filled with Big Games, Night Games, card games and oh, yes: video games. Plus some talks by some of the biggest names in the indie game development world.
The game devs will be coming from all over the planet: Australia, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Singapore, Sweden, the U.K. and an exotic land known only as the “United States”. Whatever that is.
We saw two of the games that made the cut this year- Hokra and Prom Week- at the IndieCade booth at E3. We have yet to see the game whose title card we’ve used for the image here, but come on! It’s called International Racing Squirrels. How can we resist?

UPDATE: The original press release attributed the game BlindSide to “Blacktorch Games”. We were contacted by Michael T. Astolfi, via Twitter, and informed that the game should actually be attributed to Aaron Rasmussen & Michael T. Astolfi. After consulting with the link provided by IndieCade as part of the press release (and which has been accessible since on this page was originally posted) we have corrected this mistake.
Do note that the intention- as viewable in the page code- was to list the entire link-contents of the press release in a block quote. However we have been tweaking the site and apparently the block quote look in our CSS has changed in such a way that the contents may be misconstrued as being claimed as original. I’ll have our guy look at that. Apologies for confusion. And for any grammar errors. It’s late and I just got in from a run when I found the tweet request. Now I’m going to go play Darksiders as soon as I deal with some email issues. Don’t we all just love email?
