IndieCade 2011 Winners Announced

IndieCade 2011 was held in Culver City this past weekend and started on October 6th. Fans of independent gaming were able to check out the best in indie gaming. Thirteen finalists were chosen to display their games at the downtown fire station, and I was able to check out some of the games. The one game that stood out for me was Way, and I’m happy that it won Developer’s Choice.
