GDC Europe

The organisers of GDC Europe 2015 have called for european developers to submit to the second annual European Innovative Games Showcase.

The showcase takes place during the Independent Games Summit, held in Cologne this August. The winning developers will be offered 5-minute microtalks at the final session of GDC Europe’s IGS, giving them the opportunity to showcase what’s special about their current project.

Anyone who successfully submits will also be given full Speaker Passes to the event, including full access to every GDC Europe session and the Gamescom expo. In addition, videos of the event will be showcased on Gamasutra and GDC Vault for free after the event.


The showcase’s aim is to present a variety of innovative or experimental games, including diverse and new ways to showcase gameplay, art style, play style or anything in between.

For more information you can visit the GDC Europe website, or get straight on it and submit here. Entries are open until May 22nd.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
