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.
