Google is holding an indie games festival in San Francisco September 24th


Google today announced a great new event for indie game developers. It’s called the Indie Games Festival, and we’re opting to refer to it as the Sundance for Android games.


Developers will gather in San Francisco on September 24th to show off their best work on the year, with the best games netting prizes like trips to Google I/O, Project Tango devices, and even promotion support to help get the word out about the game.

Developers who want to enter their games for consideration should do so by August 14th, after which submissions will be closed. Google is only accepting games that either have been or will be published to Google Play within the calendar year, so you’ll be out of luck if your plans fall somewhere in 2017.

The event is free to attend for players, and they will have a say in whose games bubble to the top as the most interesting, so stay tuned for details on admissions. The event is being held at the Terra Gallery in San Francisco so be sure to get your travel plans together as soon as possible if you’re planning to go!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
