Our friends Anthony Carboni and Sarah Emaleh elbowed their way into this year’s IndieCade to talk with several of the award-nominated game developers of some of the hottest and most innovative indie games at the show. Their goal: To find out what makes these awesome people tick. How did they into gaming? Why do they choose to express themselves through video games?

The IndieCade Festival is a three-day event in Culver City, CA where independent developers from all over the world gather to show off their unique video games. The public can come try out over 200 games on multiple platforms. Professionals and aspiring developers can join the conference itself to discuss indie gaming and learn from their peers. IndieCade also holds an annual award ceremony for 12 categories ranging from outstanding technical work to audience favorite.
