For the TENTH(!!!) time the Indie Arena Booth is returning to gamescom from August 24th to 28th 2022. We are focused on bringing the best international indie games together in the most exciting showcase possible. This year’s event will be hybrid, taking place simultaneously in Cologne and through our online platform.

Get ready, get hyped and submit your game now! This year’s Indie Arena Booth will be as amazing as it always was! You will be able to showcase their titles to media, platforms, publishers, and a multitude of gaming fans. 

New and returning features include the developer lounge, the streaming studio with a curated creator lineup, our famous Bitburger 0.0 multiplayer area, our accessibility area, our own business lounge and so much more! Booth configurations range from customizing your own booth to a plug and play experience. And that’s just the physical part! Online features will include platform sales events, chat functions, collectible stickers to encourage exploration, links to every platform where people can wishlist your game, and much more.

All options include both an online and offline booth, so that your game is shown to everyone, no matter where they join the Indie Arena Booth from. You as the developer, or someone on your behalf, will still need to be physically present at the event to look after your booth.

🚨 Discounts are possible! 🚨 Thanks to our partner Intel, if you sign up for the Intel GameDev Program you will receive a 50% discount on either the Small Booth or an Arcade! Read more about our cooperation here.
