gamescom: Awesome Indies
In 2020 we celebrated the wonder-filled world of indie games with this genuine and quirky digital conference.
The gamescom: Awesome Indies will also return at gamescom 2021 in cooperation with IGN:
gamescom is a celebration of all games big and small, not to mention the food and culture of its host nation, Germany. Unfortunately, IGN couldn’t make it all the way to Cologne this year, so we hit up the next best place (that was within twenty miles of our office): world-famous Venice Beach in Los Angeles! Just like independent gaming, the Venice boardwalk draws people from all around the world, and makes for a raucous backdrop of food, culture, and spectacle. The Awesome Indies Showcase is back, with your Webby and Streamy Award-Winning Host, Michael Swaim! He’ll be celebrating summer and gamescom with a beach day full of exclusive trailers, fun and games, and the unique scene only Venice Beach locals can provide. So throw on some trunks, grab a cold drink, and get ready to get indie.
