Indie X is Portugal’s biggest indie game showcase featuring both national and international indie games.
This year, we are joining forces with the biggest B2B event in Eastern Europe, and one of the biggest video games B2B events in the world: DevGAMM. The 2023 edition will mark the return to live events, focusing on B2B meet-ups, in-person showcases, workshops, live-streamed showcases, and industry-related talks. Both DevGAMM and Indie X will take place at The Oitavos Luxury Five-Star Hotel on November 16 and 17th of 2023.
This event targets both professional and public audiences and will include:
A presential showcase with dozens of Portuguese and international games from across the globe;
A live-streamed showcase for Indie games hosted by RTP Arena, the Twitch channel of Portugal’s public TV network;
A panel of renowned speakers by DevGAMM;
A Steam Event and Sale with present and past finalists;
Our partnership with DevGAMM will be making the event even bigger and more complete. B2B sessions will be hosted by our DevGAMM partners.
Additionally, we will remain commited to holding a digital edition and partnering with Valve again to hold another Steam Event + Sale.
Our mission stays the same tho – made by indies for indies, Indie X is a games event which aims to promote the best games that Portugal’s rising game dev industry has to offer, as well as a selection of international indies who tag along for an awesome showcase with tons of networking and experience sharing!
The deadline is September 10th, 2023. Lisbon time (GMT).
We are looking up to an average of 50 games for the final event.
However we are focusing on showing the best applicants, so that number of finalists for the showcase may vary depending on how many we can handle and, above all, the quality of the submitted games.
If justified some honorable mentions can be added as per the choice of the event organization.
Indie X will use your data across its multiple channels in order to select and promote your project as a Finalist. Additionally, we may share your submitted info with our jury peers and other partners in order to carry out the event in the best way possible and taking your best interests in consideration.
