Post news Report RSS Indie Playground @ DreamHack

The Indie Playground is a curated area where you enter your game and could win a complimentary booth to showcase your game. In addition, it’s organized as such by way of genre. So, an indie title will enter their game and be selected to join us, at no charge from DreamHack, based on winning a spot as one of the 12 possible genre categories. Multiple titles will be selected for each genre so we can make sure as many indie titles are seen as possible.

If selected, not only do you get a free booth, but we also want to put you on the spot. We want to give you “15 minutes of fame” and throw you on a stage to do whatever you want. Want to have a toga party on the stage showcasing your Roman game? Have at it. Want to do a presentation and keep is simple? Totally fine. Either way, you are picked as a finalist so you’re going to get your spotlight.

If you’re not selected, that’s okay… you’re still awesome and we appreciate the support. So on that note, if you took the time to enter your game and be considered, we want to reward you with some perks still. Just for entering in the Indie Playground, you have 2 options:

You can either buy your own booth at a discount or you can buy a spot in our Indie Arcade. If it’s a booth you want, that’s easy enough. If it’s the Indie Arcade, that’s as simple as uploading your game to an existing kiosk and just showing up. We’ll be in touch soon after finalists are picked to see if either of these peak your interest.
