We have been intensively dealing with the pandemic situation for months. We are observing the developments with concern in relation to our chosen date. Maybe moving it to June was not far enough – we were being hopeful and optimistic – but who can estimate a pandemic?
In the summer of 2020, there were still many unknowns in the equation: no high-impact second wave at the time, no highly infectious viral mutant at the time, and even the vaccination start date was more of a hope than real knowledge – we could not have estimated it better for the life of us.
Health is our most valued asset. We are aware of our responsibility towards our visitors, exhibitors, sponsors, and partners – Thus, we decided against an onsite event in June.
The Indie Game Fest lives on interactions between developers and visitors. The personal and direct interaction creates a flair that is difficult to reproduce digitally. For this reason, we have agreed with our partners as well as the event location, on another date shift to the end of November.
