The Indie Games Festival has been the esoteric, artisan cousin to the Game Developers Conference for 17 years. Hundreds of submissions are pared down to just a small handful of finalists, and this year’s batch bellowed “indie” from every pair of digital lungs. The 2015 IGF Pavilion housed complex storybooks that stretch the meaning of the term “visual novel,” and feats of electronic hipsterdom so impossible to categorize it sets most of Gamergate’s teeth grinding.
You can check out some of the games on display on the GDC show floor below.
