Cool titles await at Festival of Indie Games

We’re in a golden age of indie gaming. Spurred in part by the publicity and fund-raising opportunities offered by Kickstarter and in part by what appears to be a robust market for thoughtful, creative titles, indie teams all over the world (some consisting of a single developer) are churning out an endless stream of games that differ from mainstream, big-budget fare.

On Sept. 14, many of these teams will descend on Boston for the second annual Boston Festival of Indie Games at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The festival offers chances to check out upcoming titles, as well as talks about game development and a variety of other activities.
