If your town happens to be Boston, or the greater Boston area, then you are in luck! The Boston Festival of Indie Games will be held on September 14, 2013 at MIT. Both indie developers and indie game enthusiasts will flock to the esteemed university to see what is in store for the future of games.
As an attendee you can expect to get hands on time with dozens of games presented by both college students and industry veterans. At previous Festivals you could have played early versions of popular iOS games like Fieldrunners 2 and Jack Lumber then switch on over to Shade, a survival game that takes place in a “massive MC Escher-like space-station.”
If electricity is not your thing the Boston Festival of Indie Games houses dozens of board games that you will wet your old fashioned whistle. This will be your only chance to try out a handful of independent games that you will not find anywhere else. With a host of helpful and friendly exhibitors to show you the ropes you may find your brand new tabletop obsession.
