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.
BostonFIG celebrates independent game development in New England, across the United States, and around the globe. Our goal is to create an inclusive environment for everybody who enjoys and appreciates games in any shape or form. The organization seeks to support and showcase the efforts of independent game developers, as well as youth programs focused on game development and related fields.
We encourage attendees of our annual festival to participate and play games in different formats: video games, location-based games, tabletop games, and more! The games featured at the annual BostonFIG Fest are innovative and refreshing, demonstrating both the budding and the established talent of game makers of many different stripes. Our other initiatives such as BostonFIG Talks seek to expand the conversation around the exciting independent games industry and provide members of the community with additional ways to collaborate with each other.
BostonFIG is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit with the State of Massachusetts, dedicated to fostering the next generation of game developers. Through youth outreach, small-business initiatives, and our ongoing programming and events, BostonFIG strives to strengthen the independent game development industry.
