_MG_1824Boston Festival of Indie Games celebrates independent game development in New England and neighboring regions. Our goal is to create an accessible environment for everybody who enjoys and appreciates games in whatever shape or form, both as players and game developers. The festival seeks to support and showcase the efforts of independent game developers in a free public event, offering games in different formats: video games, location-based games, tabletop games and live role-playing games, amongst others. Games featured demonstrate both the emerging and established talent of the game community in the American northeast. Festival invites attendees to become game developers themselves, by participating in game jams, creating their own board and card games, and attending screenings and lectures on the process of making games. Produced under the non-profit auspices of Be Epic, a Boston-area live action games production group, the Boston Festival of Indie Games fosters an inlcusive community of academic, professional and independent developers creating games for the people.
