Indie Dome did its first appearance by taking to a higher level the dedicated area for video game developers at Lisboa Games Week.
With 50k visitors during the 4 days of 2016’s Lisboa Games Week, Indie Dome had more than 30 games. On the first edition we had the marvelous presence of Square Enix Collective and Wargaming Labs, with their teams showcasing some soon-to-be released games to LGW’s visitors. On their side were also games submitted to us by 505 Games, Kasedo Games and Sometimes You, among many.
In 2017, as Lisboa Games Week grew twice the size, Indie Dome took a higher step showcasing 50 games from all corners of the World in a much larger area. With a fantastic selection of Games and the presence of veterans like Klaus Lyngeled from Zoink and Brjánn Sigurgeirsson from Image & Form; Tyron Janse van Vuuren from Output Games; Tracey and Dave McCabe from Spooky Doorway; Indie Dome has made one of the best events in the world for indie game developers.
We believe that by attending Lisboa Games Week, you will have a great opportunity to exhibit and exchange ideas and knowledge with other agents of the videogames market, in an environment networking-oriented to establish new contacts with potential partners or customers. The contact with the public is a key for understanding the reception of the work you carry out, and it will be a focus point to promote your games, in a joint effort, beyond the expected visitors.
Absolutely! We accept volunteers for the second edition of the Indie Dome based on position availability.
An online form and information to know what’s expected of Volunteers and what’s in it for you will be available in September.
The mission of Indie Dome is to provide the best in Indie Game Showcase.
We are a non-profit and independent organization, working to promote greater awareness and visibility of the Portuguese and international independent movement. That’s why we invest in the means for a better exposure and promotion of your games, in a growing, special dedicated environment. However, this whole device would not be possible without the exceptional help of our sponsors, partners, volunteers and friends.
