Independent games festival IndieCade is expanding to Europe with a new event held in France.
IndieCade Europe will take place this November 18th and 19th in Paris’ CNAM (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers), and arrive in a similar form to its American IndieCade East counterpart, held in New York.
All of the games submitted to IndieCade’s Fall festival, set for October 14th to 16th in LA, will be eligible for exhibition at the new show.
The original IndieCade – later suffixed ‘West’ – was created a decade ago in an effort to highlight games from smaller developers. Titles to have emerged from the show include Braid, N+, Her Story, Nidhogg, Shovel Knight and Axiom verge.
“Our expansion into Europe reflects how important IndieCade’s international community has become,” said CEO Stephanie Barish.
“IndieCade Europe has been created as an opportunity to draw together community from across Europe to network, attend presentations and workshops, as well as to participate in game showcases and social events designed to support independent European game developers and aspiring creators grow their craft, refine their businesses, and flourish as artists in this rapidly expanding global, entertainment industry.”
Helene Delay, MD of IndieCade Europe partner Capital Games, added: “Welcoming IndieCade Europe to Paris is a great opportunity for French and European videogame creators to get the attention they deserve, to gather and share their passion.
“We’re proud to think that France has always been a welcoming land for creation and we’re thrilled to give our support to IndieCade Europe.”
