The European Game Showcase at GDC is back for its 2020 edition!

Submissions are open!

Christopher Heck, Business Development Manager Nintendo of Europe:

“It is a great way to discover and connect with indies from Europe.”

Goran Saric, co-founder Okomotive, makers of Far: Lone Sails:

“The European Game Showcase in San Francisco was quite a positive experience for us. It’s a small business meeting with platform holders and publishers and only with some handpicked game projects. Within that small scope it was quite easy for us to get in contact with a representative of Sony. Two days later we already got access to Sony’s back-end and we could order a devkit for our PS4 port.”
