ALT+CTRL A Festival of Independent and Alternative Games

A festival of independent and alternative games, showcasing the most innovative new concepts in computer games by independent developers, artists and game modders. Not unlike the Sundance Film Festival, ALT+CTRL seeks to cultivate a vibrant independent game community, and bring both the game industry and the general public new and novel applications in game design, game genres, methodologies and approaches to game play.


 Over 20 works will be shown, including modded games, hot-rodded game machines, net-based games, and installlations. Special screening of machinima films made "on location" in various games highlight the sheer inventiveness with which game artists are expanding their field.

ALT + CTRL fills a vital niche in the nation's fastest-growing entertainment field by providing a juried venue outside the mainstream game industry to showcase the latest independent and alternative games.
