The European Game Showcase at GDC 2020

We had to make the difficult decision to cancel EGS 2020. Please read the full statement here.

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.”
