The European Game Showcase will return again to GDC in 2023

The European Game Showcase will be back at GDC in 2023. On March 21, we will host another showcase at Swissnex in San Francisco to help developers with great connections.

If you want to be part of our showcase, please submit your game no later than January 12, 2023. You can find the submission form here. Please check the FAQ before submitting your game to ensure that your game is eligible for the showcase.

You can submit all kinds of video games for all platforms, as long as the game is not yet released before GDC 2023. Submissions have to be done by the developer (not a publisher or another third party).

A big shout out to our sponsors, especially Swissnex and the Xsolla Accelerator program. Please scroll down for the full 2023 sponsor list.

About EGS

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.”
