Indie Showcase 2018

Independent game development is at the very heart of Game Anglia. Our Indie Showcase returns in 2018 BIGGER, and BETTER than ever before. You loved it so much we have extended it into a two day event.

It will now run from 6pm to 10pm on Friday 9th of November, here you’ll have the opportunity to meet and greet and network with indie developers in a more relaxed atmosphere.

However, for those who thrive in the hustle and bustle of a busy environment, the Conference will be starting on Saturday 10th November for the full day.

This year the Indie Showcase will have a dedicated Multiplayer Section, so don’t forget to bring a friend or family member to join you.

Indie Developers and students welcome!

See you on the 9th and 10th of November!


How do you choose which student games will be showcased?
We have a minimum quality standard, your game must be playable. There must be no game breaking bugs, and one complete level of gameplay.

My game is really unpolished, will that count against me?
No, we love the ugly ducklings as much as the cute ones.

What do you consider a “student” to be?
A student is anyone aged 14+ who is currently in education. They would normally be studying games development, however we would consider a student from any discipline.

Is there a prize if I win?
If your game is selected for either the Best Student Game or Players’ Choice Award you will receive a trophy for you to keep and credit on the Game Anglia website.

Is it true the prize trophy was designed and made by the community?
Yes it is! We hosted an 3D modelling competition in collaboration with educational institutions in the region. The top two entries in the competition became our Players Choice award and Best Student Game award.
