A celebration of independent game development in a variety of media and genres, Boston Festival of Indie Games returns as the biggest event showcasing independent tabletop and video games in New England. Boston FIG is an inclusive, welcoming environment filled with family-friendly activities and games you won’t see anywhere else. In 2014, Boston FIG had over 3,500 people in attendance, with over 150 developers showing off, and featured talks from Unity, Epic Games, Facebook, and more!
Aside from the awesome video and tabletop games that will be on display in the exhibition space, attendees will have the opportunity to attend talks, panels, and workshops on indie game development and the future of the game industry, as well as attend the annual Figgies Awards Show at the end of the day. Additional details, including this year’s programming and keynote speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. To stay informed on fest progress, be sure to sign up for updates on www.bostonfig.com.
This year’s new leadership team is committed to creating the most successful festival yet, with Caroline Murphy, who also runs Boston Indies and has worked with our favorite local publishers including Firehose Games, returning to take the role of Executive Producer. Yenni Brusco, a producer for Nectar Game Studios, and Eli Kosminsky, chair of the Game Makers Guild, are excited to return as this year’s Co-Producers.
“We’re excited to open up registration for attendees, volunteers and staff for this year’s festival,” says Caroline Murphy, Executive Producer of Boston FIG. “Our team of staff and volunteers is what makes the show so successful, and we can’t wait to have that abundant energy again this year. The New England game development community deserves an annual celebration of independent talent, and we’re honored to be able to provide that environment for the fourth year running.”
