Fig @ IndieCade 2015

Khahil here! I’m Head of Community over here at Fig it’s great to meet you. This past weekend Fig headed over to IndieCade to celebrate indie games, connect with friends and developers, play games, and did I mention play games?

If you’ve never been to IndieCade before, it’s an event truly focused on independent games and their creators.

I thought I’d share with you some of our team’s favorite games from IndieCade. Check them out!

Johan (Backend Engineer)
Broforce by Devolver Digital
Yeah bro
Take all the so-bad-they-were-good 80ies action movies and NES platform games, throw them in a blender and out comes Broforce. If you actually put VHS cassettes and NES cartridges in a real blender, then you will have created a mess. Shame on you.

Justin (CEO, aka THE BOSS)
XING by White Lotus Interactive
It could make for a cool VR experience if they figure out locomotion, however it already looks like the next evolution of Myst, so I’m just as excited to play it on PC.

Khahil (you know who I am)
Fabulous Beasts by Sensible Object
The most fabulous of beasts
They’re beasts, and they’re fabulous. A physical / digital stacking game which affects the world in game? I want more of this. I even made sure to snag a sticker from the booth to remind me of it.

Fiona (UX Designer)
Butt Sniffin Pugs by Space Beagles
Pugs gotta pug
I’d seen the game before, but this was the first time I’d seen the pug butt controllers, it’s adorable! Also, you play as a pug.

Cindy (Operations)
Classroom Aquatic by Sunken Places
Dolphin cheating, it's a real problem.
Thank goodness for VR, which makes it possible for you to become a dolphin who must cheat on exams in order to get through dolphin school. This trivia/stealth game is delightful, super dolphiny, and completely absurd.

Jonathan (Business Development)
Walden by Game Innovation Lab
Looks cold
A game where you are Henry David Thoreau, and also possibly a high school English student’s worst nightmare. Translating Walden from a book into a game is an impressive feat yet this team is doing it.

Overall impressions? IndieCade is a great show, it has its own niche and it knows what it’s doing. We’re excited to check it out again next year.
