The Boston Festival of Indie Games was one of my highlights of 2014: It was a great opportunity to see Indie Games in their infancy, talk personally with developers, and was an exceptionally well run festival. Yesterday, the date for this year’s BFIG was announced and you can be sure I marked my calendar!
Boston FIG 2015 is taking place on September 12, 2015! Attendee and exhibitor registration will open later this spring.
Boston Festival of Indie Games is the biggest celebration of independent tabletop and video games in New England. Boston FIG is an inclusive, welcoming environment filled with family-friendly activities and games you won’t see anywhere else.
There was also an announcement of new BFIG leadership for this year (except for the returning Eli Kosminsky).
Below is a breakdown of the new head of the Boston Festival of Indie Games, taken from the Press Release:
Caroline is excited to return as Boston FIG’s Executive Producer in 2015! She brings with her the same enthusiasm and experience she uses to run Boston Indies, working with our favorite local publishers including Firehose Games.
Scott is CEO of Protobird Games and has made video games for over 20 years on all platforms: social, mobile, console, handheld, and PC. Scott joins this year’s festival as Vice Executive Producer.
Yenni Brusco is a freelance website developer, producer for Nectar Game Studios, landlady, owner of Next
Level Pet Care, and is Secretary for this year’s festival. She graduated from Champlain College’s Game Design program.
