GDC Indie Megabooth

Organisers of the Indie Megabooth have confirmed the lineup of games appearing at next month’s Game Developers Conference.

The Indie Megabooth Showcase returns with an all-new lineup of promising titles that will be on show at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco from March 18-22, 2019.

The showcase features 24 new games, seven of which will be playable for the very first time. The first batch of 12 will be on display on Monday and Tuesday, with a second selection showcased from Wednesday to Friday.

Megabooth games include Wakefield Interactive’s Where the Bees Make Honey, Studio Zevere’s She Dreams Elsewhere, Inkle’s Heaven’s Vault, and an as yet unannounced title from Flight School Studio.

Kelly Wallick, CEO and founder of Indie Megabooth, says:

“The variety among the titles that were selected to participate in our annual GDC showcase speaks volumes about our curation approach. There’s something for everyone, from clever puzzle games, to narrative driven titles, to action adventure, and even some strategy and horror. We even have a digital kinetic board game showing with us! We’re proud to be returning to GDC and to give these indie devs a chance to get their games in front of other developers and new potential partners. It’s going to be an inspiring week with loads of networking opportunities.”
