What They Say

The Indie Showcase is not only a chance to display your games to a lot of publishers and industry gurus but it is also a great opportunity to meet and spend time with other developers from around the world. Shailesh Prabhu, Yellow Monkey Games, creator of Huebrix and Indie Showcase Europe Developer
The best part is being able to SEE and PLAY the awesome games. And, of course, the opportunity to meet developers who you can talk to while playing their games. Every time I see a new game I'm blown away by how amazing the new generation is, they are the bright future of the games industry.Chris Taylor, founder of Gas Powered Games and Indie Showcase Europe Visitor
We created the Indie Showcase as a playground, where innovation and creativity can thrive. This is the place for developers to exchange ideas with peers, find inspiration and recharge their creative batteries. It's also the place for publishers and distributors to discover the next great talent. Juan Gril, Co-director, Indie Showcase
