A new video game event is always a reason to celebrate, a place where you can enjoy and experience first-hand video games that are not yet available to the public, where you can meet their developers and also exclusively watch world presentations.

And they are cause for even greater celebration when it comes to enterprising small studios looking to nonprofit present to the world the fruit of his effort and his passion: his works, his video games. This is how Indie Dev Day was born, which can be enjoyed in Barcelona.

What is Indie Dev Day?

Indie Dev Day (@IndieDevDay) was born as an event where almost thirty developers have left their skin to offer for free a space where you can enjoy, play and learn about the next Spanish independent video games.

But in addition to the massive participation of independent studios in our country, they have prepared various activities and surprises which we will discuss later. A unique opportunity to see first-hand future games from these studios for all platforms.

By developers and for developers

The initiative was born from the indie studio Nape Games and the blog Retro-o-Rama (Retro-o-Rama). Little by little it was gaining strength and support among developers until it was resolved. Leaving the competition aside, many independent studios in our country have decided to shake hands and carry out a project that they did not know if it would go ahead, but has finally paid off.

The event has been confirmed just a few hours ago from the Indie Dev Day social networks, so we can already prepare. All this work by the developers is worth mentioning on our part, and as players we will be able to see all the news in the event in addition to enjoying the activities.

Currently the main managers are Nape Games and CometCon (@CometConES)

A Game Jam with a great prize

In addition, there will be a Game Jam weeks before the event where the prize will be neither more nor less than the possibility of present your game in a booth next to all the other independent video games —whenever you want–. In this way the diffusion of your game will be enormous.

The platform for the Game Jam will be itch.io, a period of one week will be given to develop your video game on this platform, and then there will be another week of voting. The winner will be revealed shortly before the day of the event.

you can find the exact date of the Game Jam from this link.

What is a Game Jam?

A Game Jam is a developer marathon where a deadline is usually given 24-48 hours to develop a video game. They are usually made up of teams or individually, and sections are valued as graphics, soundtrack, sounds, gameplayand so on.
