What makes a game good? or bad? or better? or indie? IndieCade has hosted Well Played sessions across the years to explore these questions through in-depth close readings of video games that unpack the various meanings to be found in the playing of a game. The goal is to help develop and define a literacy of games as well as a sense of the value and diversity of independent games. Games are a complex medium that merits careful interpretation and insightful analysis. This is one of IndieCade’s highlight 10th anniversary moment, celebrating the tradition of hosting a well played and featuring Tacoma, the just released a game by the Fullbright company, who took part in a IndieCade well played with their award winning selection, Gone Home - exactly five years ago to the day. 

Tacoma is a sci-fi narrative adventure set aboard a high-tech space station in the year 2088, explore every detail of how the station’s crew lived and worked, finding the clues that add up to a gripping story of trust, fear, and resolve in the face of disaster.
