Day of the Devs Celebrates 10 Year AnniversaryDay of the Devs returns bigger and better than ever before for its 10th circle around the sun with a physical and virtual event in November! Submissions are now open for consideration into both events.
The physical in-person celebration, returning after a three-year hiatus, will once again be held at The Midway in San Francisco on Saturday, November 5. As with previous years, the event will bring access to a broad range of incredible unreleased games to indie and gaming fans in the San Francisco area – all with no costs to the attendees or developers. Along with games, there will be food, music and good vibes! The virtual event will take the form of a digital showcase to highlight a select group of innovative and unique indie games. More details on the showcase, including timing will be revealed in the coming weeks. Day of the Devs most recently celebrated an epic digital showing in June in collaboration with Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest, which provided a stage for a number of incredible games. Developers with playable content can submit their projects for consideration into the in-person event and the digital showcase here. Out of those selected for the in-person event, a handful will be chosen to participate in the digital showcase. Developers from diverse backgrounds working on interesting and unique games, as well as non-traditional forms of interactive entertainment are welcome and encouraged to apply. Submissions will remain open until September 13. Day of the Devs is the industry’s foremost indie games showcase celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Day of the Devs began in 2012 as a collaboration between Double Fine and iam8bit with the purpose of shining the spotlight on great indie games. Day of the Devs celebrates the creativity, diversity and magic of the indie game community, taking on the form of virtual and physical events – all completely free, with no costs to either developers or attendees. Since its inception, Day of the Devs has always been platform agnostic and supported by a wide range of industry sponsors, keeping it fair and free for everyone, while bringing publishers and first parties together for the love of indie games. Over the last decade, Day of the Devs has showcased over 500 games, including hits like Psychonauts 2, Untitled Goose Game, Unpacking, What Remains of Edith Finch, Disco Elysium and much more.
