Welcome to the Indie Arena Booth 2018

The Indie Arena Booth is the biggest shared developer booth in the world and in 2018 we’re stepping up our game! From August 21st - 25th the Indie Arena Booth will invade gamescom on more than 1.000 m2, but furthermore we’re starting our own convention in October 2018 in Erfurt. The event is called MAG and it’s a convention for the best fan communities. We partnered up with the biggest video creators in Germany to deliver an event tailored around the needs of our developers and their fans. More infos on both events and prices are in our apply section. We’re looking forward to your awesome game submission!

What we stand for

The Indie Arena Booth is an open home for independent game developers from all over the world. It is a platform for the developers as well as a showcase for the colorful and vivid game scene between Avantgarde and AAA. The Indie Arena welcomes every developer and game enthusiast to be a part of this great event!

The Indie Arena Booth started as a very small hand-made exhibition space for indie developers at gamescom in 2013. 

Our intention is to give games of all colors and sizes a platform to be presented to the audience of gamescom, supporting local as well as international developers for an affordable price.
