The organisers of Develop:Brighton have announced the nine games shortlisted for this year’s Indie Showcase.
With the E3 hubbub finally beginning to die down, it’s time to turn our attention back to the creativity found in the world of independent video games.
July sees the return of Develop:Brighton, the UK’s leading games development conference. For the seventh year it will be hosting an Indie Showcase to highlight a range of promising titles from the indie development scene. The showcase is once again sponsored by Unity, and this year nine titles have been selected by a judging panel of industry experts based on their achievements in graphics, gameplay, technology and originality.
The judging panel will select an overall Indie Showcase winner, which will be announced on Thursday July 13th. All Develop:Brighton delegates can try out the games at the conference expo, and vote for their favourite in the Peoples Choice award.
Adam Green, chairman of the Indie Showcase selection panel, said:
“Every year we’re blown away by the standard of submissions for the Indie Showcase and this year was no exception. We had over 120 games submitted this year, which is the highest number yet. Selecting the finalists from such an incredible range of diverse titles was as challenging as it was inspiring. Be sure to swing by the Indie Showcase and check them out!”
