One particular game genre that has increased in popularity over the past years is the indie genre. Indie games are typically small-scale applications that are made by a small group of individuals, or even a single person. The developers have very little funding and resources, which leaves the fate of the game entirely in the developer’s hands. As a result, Indie games are some of the most diverse that one can find on the Play Store.
To recognize and encourage the Indie developer community, Google is hosting the Google Play Indie Games Festival. The festival, which takes place on the 24th of September, will showcase a wide variety of Indie games. Some of the apps that will be on display will be unreleased to the general public at that time.
The festival runs for the entirety of the day and will be hosted at the Terra Gallery, in San Francisco.
We’re also excited to announce the games selected to exhibit and compete at the event. From over 200 submissions, we carefully picked 30 games that promise the most fun and engaging experiences to attendees. Fans will have a chance to play a variety of indie games not yet available publicly.
Entrance is free, and anyone present will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite game. You need to register here first before the day. There is a prize up for grabs for attendees.
