Denkiphile: "We all know the big releases - the Call of Dutys, the Assassin's Creeds, and the Uncharteds. However, with recent generations of gaming, we've definitely seen a huge rise in indie games. Some of these are from small developers or college students, hoping to make their mark on the scene with an incredibly well designed game and traditional mechanics. Others simple blow minds. Indiecade's the event that celebrates these games and shows them off to the public. The weekend in Culver City, California was filled with awards shows, parties, conferences, and, not to mention, games."
