East Coast Indie event continues to grow
It felt like at least half of the videogame side of the show floor at PAX East 2014 was made up of indie games. The Indie Megabooth used to be a tiny side show. Now its pretty much a show unto itself. It was easy to think that a purely indie game event may do just as well if not better than PAX East if it were managed the right way.
Oddly enough, a event like that already exists. The Boston Festival of Indie Games has been around for a while now, and it gets bigger every year. We talked to Dan Silvers, co-director of the show and creator of upcoming historical stealth game Children of Liberty about how Boston FIG has grown, casting Ashly Burch in his game, and a lot more.
Then a lady appeared to grow out of his back and she talked to us.
