Boston Festival of Indies Games Recognized by Boston Globe Magazine!

The 1st annual Boston Festival of Indie Games was held on September 22, 2012. Co-presented by MIT Game Lab and Boston Indies, the festival was/is a celebration of independent game development in the New England region. Over 2,000 people came out to play some of the coolest games made by extremely talented local developers. Enlightening talks, LARP games, an art exhibit, and more kept attendees engaged beyond the very well attended digital game showcase.

I pitched in on PR efforts surrounding the festival alongside a stellar team of Co-Producers. The entire planning  committee put in countless volunteer hours to make the 1st Festival amazing. And, boy was it! We received tons of local and national press coverage around the event. But, just this past weekend we are extremely proud that Boston FIG was honored by the Boston Globe Magazine being named one of the best ideas/diversions of 2012. Check out the full feature here! And, a snapshot of the print version follows as well.

We’re all looking forward to next year’s event – more details coming soon!
