Sponsored by the MIT Game Lab
The Boston Festival of Indie Games is a celebration of independent game development with emphasis on the New England and neighboring regions. The Boston Festival of Indie Games seeks to support and showcase the efforts of independent game developers by providing an inclusive, safe, family-friendly event that encourages attendees to share and interact with games in various media, from video games to tabletop games and beyond. The Boston Festival of Indie Games is focused on creating an intersection between community, academic and development interests in game play.

Featured Tabletop and Digital Showcase Games have been posted!

Attendees will also 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.


Keynote: Ashly Burch and Sarah Elmaleh
“An Actor’s Truth, the Future of Indies and the End of the AAA Everyman”

Ashly Burch and Sarah Elmaleh are actors and game voiceover artists/siblings. Ashly is lead actress and co-writer/creator of hit web series Hey Ash Whatcha Playin’? and can be heard in games such as Borderlands 2 and Gravity Ghost, Children of Liberty, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Saints Row 4, Awesomenauts, Towerfall and Guided Fate Paradox. You can also hear her goofin’ in cartoons such as Adventure Time, Bee and Puppy Cat and Attack on Titan. Sarah’s indie game roles include goody two-shoes older sisters, often to Ash (Gone Home, Gravity Ghost, Children of Liberty), a strong-yet-vulnerable Latina doctor (Resonance), a cranky flapper (Blackwell Epiphany), an eager British spy handler (Codename Cygnus), fiercely opposing Japanese goddesses (Skulls of the Shogun), and your classic insidious shipboard computers (Gemini Rue and Redshirt).
