Intel is to sponsor the ‘game maker house’ at the Indiecade 2011, providing free housing to ten independent studios.
The communal house is where the event’s top creators and participants will stay throughout the festival, providing on-going blog posts and social media alerts about their experiences.
Intel has said that it is committed to providing resources for these selected teams through its software partner program.
As well as accommodation, developers will be able to speak at the conference, showcase their game, and have access to all sessions, networking, clinics and the awards ceremony.
Indiecade CEO Stephanie Barish said: “Many independent game developers don’t have the resources to be able to attend conferences like Indiecade.
“We are elated to have the Intel Software Partner Program sponsor the Game Maker House, providing these developers a place to stay.”
The event, now in its fourth year, is a festival for independent studios from around the world to showcase their games whilst it “encourages innovation” and “artistry in interactive media”.
The festival will place from October 6th to the 9th in downtown Culver City, California.
