The Indie Showcase celebrates the best of indie game development with an exhibition featuring the ten best entries as chosen by a panel led by Assyria Games’ Adam Green. One game will be judged overall Indie Showcase Winner, one will be selected by journalists in the Editors Choice Award and there will also be the chance for all delegates to vote for their favourite game during the event in the People’s Choice Award.
Last year’s winners included That Dragon, Cancer, Gunpoint, and Ibb and Obb.
All 10 finalists receive two free Indie Dev Day conference passes, up to five Expo passes, pre-event publicity, plus the opportunity to show their games to around 1,600 developers and publishers at the event.
“It is fantastic that The Indie Showcase is back for a fourth year. Last year produced a record number of submissions and I think it is safe to say we are in a golden age for indie developers. I have high hopes there will be even more amazing games submitted this year and I can’t wait to check them all out,” said Adam Green, managing director Assyria Games.
Entry to the Indie Showcase is open to the following:
- Studios with no more than 15 people
- Studios – and games – that are non-publisher funded
- Games which are not published by a third party at the time of submission
- Games that have a development budget of less than £1million
- Games that are created in the “indie spirit”
The deadline to enter is 12 May 2014 and the Indie Showcase, Editors’ Choice and People’s Choice winners will be announced to press and delegates at the Develop in Brighton Conference on Thursday 10 July 2014.
The Develop in Brighton conference runs from 8th-10th July 2014 at the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel.
