Win a space in the Indie Showcase
At this year’s PAX Aus, the indie developers of Australia will have plenty of opportunities to connect with the ever eager gaming public. In addition to the dedicated space of the Indie Pavilion, the folks at PAX are also holding a competition to show off your games in the Indie Showcase! The showcase, a separate exhibit to the Indie Pavilion, will host games that feature a high “fun factor and a great gameplay experience” as judged by the people behind PAX.
The cost of entering your game to be considered is $50, and the lucky Indies selected to feature will receive:
- Four Exhibitor Hall Badges for PAX Aus 2014, (giving you access to everything exhibitors receive).
- A 3 x 3 meter booth in the PAX Aus Exhibition Hall, for you to demo your game. PAX can also provide you with a monitor and speakers (but not hardware or video adapters) for your display, provided that these are requested at least 30 days before the show.
To be eligible for consideration you must be an independent developer without a traditional publisher-developer relationship in place, you cannot be funded by an outside party, and the game must at least be in beta form. Just make sure you fit these requirements before submitting, because if you don’t the game will be automatically disqualified, with no refunds on the entry fee.
The deadline for submissions into the Indie Showcase is July 6th, 2014.
So head on over to the Indie Showcase page at Penny Arcade for all the details.
Other Booth Options
Don’t fit the Indie Showcase contest requirements? Fear not! Applications are still open for booths at the Indie Pavilion, as are registrations for general Exhibition spaces.
