Welcome to the Indie Game Fest !
Who we are:
Created in 2019, the Indie Game Fest is a curated, annual event that is held in Cologne, Germany. The goal of Indie Game Fest is to create a gathering and community for indie developers, designers, publishers, business associates, students and more in Germany and Europe! We want to help create visibility and opportunities for gamers, indie studios, publishers, business associates, and more to be able to meet and present themselves and their work.
Research conducted by the “game – Verband der deutschen Games-Branche” shows that indie games are popular because of their creativity and special style, but so far only just under one in two “gamers” has heard of indie games. This is exactly where and why the Indie Game Fest was founded, with a mission to start and provide more visibility for consumers and studios.
How it started:
The first Indie Game Fest was held in November 2019 at Meltdown Bar in Cologne. Meltdown is a bar for gamers of all kinds! With this one-day event, we were able to show that there is a need for an event that focuses exclusively on Indie Projects. The feedback we received attendants and associates was so positive that we decided to take next steps and pursue creating Indie Game Fest into something bigger!
