Eurogamer, has announced the game submission process for The Indie Games Arcade at this yearâ€™s Eurogamer Expo is now open.
Supported by digital distribution service Get Games, the Indie Games Arcade is returning to the third annual Eurogamer Expo this year from 1st – 3rd October. Co-ordinator Pixel-Lab is seeking submissions from up-and-coming developers keen to exhibit their work. Last year, more than ten thousand visitors attended the Eurogamer Expo, and that number is set to be even bigger this year.
“It’s good to be able to offer indies this chance to put their work out there, as well as spring these kind of projects on expo-goers”, said David Hayward, coordinator of the Indie Games Arcade.
“The people and companies who make the kind of games we show really aren’t the type that can afford expo space that publishers and platform holders get. Likewise, their work is substantially different in tone. In past years we’ve had genuine reactions of surprise, pleasure, and embarrassment from players and I’m really looking forward to this year”.
All submissions exhibited will be automatically submitted for the â€˜Rock, Paper, Shotgun Indie Game of the Showâ€™ award. Debuting at this yearâ€™s Expo and donated by popular PC gaming blog www.rockpapershotgun.com, the prestigious prize is already being coveted on the indie scene.
To submit a game for consideration, developers must provide the following:
* A short description of the game
* Background on the designer and/or company
* Anticipated release date
Links to videos are also very welcome. All submissions should be made to David Hayward at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is 13th August 2010.
