Mark your calendars, indie game lovers!
Today MIT Game Lab and Boston Indies has announced that the second annual Boston Festival of Indie Games will be held on Saturday September 14th. Unlike last year, where the festival was held in one location, the event will be held at various spots at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA. The event will be free to the public.
“The MIT Game Lab is the perfect partner for an event like Boston Festival of Indie Games, with both organizations’ shared dedication to game development and the New England games community,” said Rik Eberhardt, studio manager at MIT Game Lab and Boston Festival of Indie Games co-producer in a press release. “All of us at the MIT Game Lab are pumped to continue to be the location and promotional partner for Boston Festival of Indie Games in 2013 and beyond.”
“As a sponsor, speaker and attendee of the 2012 Boston Festival of Indie Games, I was impressed with the quality of the programming and showcase games, as well as the overall attendance – there was an unforgettable energy at MIT last year,” said Michelle Yaiser, gaming content and community manager for Adobe. “We are excited about the updates to come to BFIG in 2013 and look forward to staying involved with the fest and the ever-vibrant Boston Indie community.”
“We are very much looking forward to bringing the same level of quality programming, games and sponsors to our 2013 event,” said Caroline Murphy, community manager for Boston Indies and Boston Festival of Games co-producer. “Adding to the stellar line-up of activities that took place in 2012, we are planning to make a number of improvements in 2013 including a bigger space to accommodate for thousands of fans and attendees, music performances, panels and more!”
More info on Boston FIG 2013, such as the opening of attendee registration and game submissions, will be made available in late February 2013. To sign up for updates, visit the official website on www.BostonFIG.com.
