In addition to video and tabletop games that will be on display in the exhibition space, attendees will have the opportunity to attend talks, panels, and workshops on indie game development and the future of the game industry, as well as attend the annual Figgies Awards Show at the end of the day.

This year’s new leadership team is committed to creating the most successful festival yet, with Caroline Murphy, an original fest co-founder who also runs Boston Indies and has worked with our favorite local publishers including Firehose Games, returning to take the role of Executive Producer. Yenni Brusco, a producer for Nectar Game Studios, and Eli Kosminsky, chair of the Game Makers Guild, are excited to return as this year’s Co-Producers.
“We’re excited to open up registration for attendees, volunteers and staff for this year’s festival,” says Caroline Murphy, Executive Producer of BostonFIG. “Our team of staff and volunteers is what makes the show so successful, and we can’t wait to have that abundant energy again this year.
