This year, for the first time, the Indie Games Festival event will be virtual so anyone anywhere can attend.

We will celebrate the art, innovation and creativity of some of the best developers from various European countries.

You will have the chance to explore the games, meet the developers who made them, cheer them on, hang out with other players, and be the first to hear who the winners are.

Expect plenty of fun and some very special surprises. So, don’t miss out!

The event is free to attend.
