The ever popular Indie Dev Day returns for the fourth year in 2014. It’s a day-long conference track with networking events taking place on Thursday 10 July, designed specifically for established independent studios, new start-ups, developers teetering on the brink of becoming an indie, freelance developers and students.

Indie Dev Showcase 2013
And as part of the Indie Dev focus, we’re also running The Indie Showcase again from 9 - 10 July in the Develop Expo – which will feature 10 independently developed games unpublished by a third party, shortlisted by a panel of experts. Delegates will have the chance to play all the games on display, and one of these games will go on to be judged overall Indie Showcase winner by our panel. All delegates will have a chance to vote for their favourite game in the Showcase via a "People's Choice" ballot at the event.
The 2013 Indie Showcase Winners were:
People's Choice award as voted for by attendees - That Dragon, Cancer by Josh Larson and Ryan Green, a game created to help Ryan's four year old son Joel in his battle against cancer. www.thatdragoncancer.com
Editors' Choice award as voted for by the media - Gunpoint by Suspicious Development, a PC stealth puzzle game developed by former games journalist Tom Francis.
Indie Showcase overall winner as voted for by the judging panel - Ibb and Obb by Sparpweed, a PS3 game designed around co-op play where two players find themselves in a world split in two.
The 2014 Indie Dev Showcase competition will open in early April - watch this space!
