2nd Annual Boston Festival of Indie Games Announced

The Boston Festival of Indie Games, presented by MIT Game Lab and Boston Indies, announced today that the 2nd annual Boston Festival of Indie Games will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at various locations on the MIT campus. A celebration of independent game development in a variety of media and genres, Boston Festival of Indie Games is free and open to the public. More fest details, such as the opening of attendee registration and game submissions, will be announced in late February 2013.

Boston Festival of Indie Games provides independent game developers with the opportunity to show off their games, get feedback from the public and win great prizes in the BFIG Digital Games Showcase. Festival attendees play video games, tabletop games and live action roleplaying (LARP) games in a casual, inclusive environment, plus attend film screenings and talks. Attendees can also become game developers themselves by participating in digital game jams, creating their own board and card games, and attending screenings and lectures about the process of making games.
