Several city blocks of downtown Culver City will transform into a massive arcade this weekend as the sixth annual IndieCade Festival comes to town.
Referred to as the Sundance Film Festival of independent video games, IndieCade will offer attendees the chance to play more than 200 game titles across multiple genres and platforms, organizers said. Game creators will also be on hand to meet festival goers.
"In the previous five years, tens of thousands of
attendees have participated in IndieCade," event organizers said in a news release. "Downtown Culver
City converts into a gamers’ utopia where many of the hit
games of tomorrow are playable before their release."
At this year's festival, the new PlayStation 4 will be available to preview before its release. In addition, there will be 15 outdoor physical multiplayer games for attendees to tackle and multiple game tournaments.
Workshops and panel discussions will also take place with topics such as "Hand-crafted Toys for Grownups" and "Art in Video Games."
The IndieCade Festival runs Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. with night games from 7 p.m. until midnight. Sunday hours run from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Festival wristbands ban be purchased online at the IndieCade Festival website or at the main gate near the intersection of Culver Boulevard and Main Street for $20.
