    IndieCade – the premiere international festival of independent games – has announced the nominees and official game selections for its 10th anniversary festival, hosted October 6-8, 2017 at the Japanese American National Museum in the Little Tokyo District of Downtown Los Angeles.
     
    “Our commitment to cultivating diverse and innovative games across all mediums has helped thousands of indie game developers gain visibility throughout the past decade,” said Stephanie Barish, Chief Executive Officer of IndieCade. “This year, as we celebrate our milestone 10th anniversary festival, we truly honor the talented individuals around the world who continue to create the most unique and artistic independent games. From thought-provoking titles that explore real world issues, to live action RPGs that bring people together in communal experiences, this year’s selections reflect the strength and ingenuity of the community, and we’re proud to showcase top emerging talent.”
     
    An international jury comprised of past IndieCade finalists, indie and mainstream game developers, artists, researchers, academics, curators, game writers and journalists selected the IndieCade 2017 nominees and exhibiting games. This year’s selections feature a diverse array of titles available for play on PC, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream and PlayStation, as well as virtual and augmented reality installations, tabletop games, performance art, sports, card games and live action role-playing.
