The Boston Festival of Indie Games is an annual celebration of indie game development from New England and neighboring regions. The event showcases the efforts of local independent game developers by providing a free public event that encourages attendees to share and interact with games in various media, including video games and tabletop games. The event is produced under the non-profit auspices of BeEpic, a Boston location-based games production group. Parts of this year's event were successfully crowd-funded via Kickstarter.
This year's BostonFIG will feature a keynote by Journey Producer Robin Hunicke.
