About IndieCade Europe

IndieCade Europe is a two-day celebration of independent games and their creators, with talks, panels, workshops, exhibits, an award ceremony and, of course, games to experience. The line-up is curated by IndieCade’s diverse and brilliant community of designers, thinkers and players.

The titles involved offer a wealth of innovative and fresh game experiences, celebrating the diversity and variety of gaming culture from around the world. This includes over 900 IndieCade submissions from all over Europe and beyond – featuring games from Palestine, India, Australia and many more. Over the past two years, IndieCade shows in the US have put an early spotlight on games such as Her Story, Hyperlight Drifter, Axiom Verge, Armello, Nidhogg and Shovel Knight.
