With the potential for reaching an audience of up to 1,800 developers and/or publishers, plenty are bound to be competing for the ten finalist slots at this year’s Indie Showcase, but don’t let that stop you. Submitting is free, and who knows – maybe your studio will end up among the ten?
Now, while I did say ‘studio’, some restrictions do apply. The studio must consist of 15 people or less, have no publisher funding, and projects should have a budget of less than £1,000,000. Oh and while the event is free-to-enter as it were, you’ll still need passes to Develop: Brighton, as Indie Showcase is very much part of that expo.
Unless your studio ends up a finalist that is because each of those are treated to two free Indie Dev Day passes and five expo passes, on top of some pre-event publicity along with a profile on Develop: Brighton’s website. Prestigious stuff for sure.
As for the show-and-tell stuff… needless to say, that’ll all happen on the aforementioned Indie Dev Day (July 16th). During this, each studio will be able to show their games in a dedicated area within the expo and do meet-and-greets with fans, other developers, publishers, and whatnot.
