The indie developer community released several fantastic titles on Google Play during 2019, showing the technical skill and innovative design that makes them an essential part of the gaming landscape.
To continue helping indie developers thrive, today we’re announcing the 2020 edition of our annual Google Play Indie Games Festival. This year we will host three competitions for developers from several European countries*, Japan, and South Korea.
Prizes are designed to help you grow your business, including:
- The chance to exhibit at the final events in Warsaw, Tokyo or Seoul
- Promotions on the Google Play Store
- Promotions on our consumer and developer-facing channels
- Access to exclusive developer-focused Google events
- Personalized consultation sessions with Google team members
- And more!
The contests are open to developers from selected countries, with no more than 50 employees. The submitted game must be new, released at least in open beta between May 7, 2019 and March 2, 2020. See other requirements in the terms and conditions for each of the contests.
Simply fill out the relevant form by clicking here. Submissions are open until March 2, 2020, at 3pm CET.
The Top 20 entries in each region will be announced in March and invited to showcase at the Festival events where the field will be narrowed to 10 by the event audience, industry experts and the Google team. The Top 10 will present their games on stage and the 3 winners will be selected.
