SEGA to host Eurogamer Expo Indie Arcade

Submissions for 2011 independent showcase now open

Submissions are now open for the Eurogamer Expo Indie Arcade, supported by SEGA, and in association with Rock Paper Shotgun.

The Arcade will showcase more than a dozen independent games, and has previously played host to titles like Joe Danger, Nidhogg and Hohokum.

It’s a chance for independent developers to share their games with the 30,000 gamers expected to attend the Eurogamer Expo in September. It costs nothing to enter, and the closing date for submissions is August 19.

"The response to the Indie Arcade at previous Eurogamer Expos has been phenomenal, both from developers and Expo visitors," said David Hayward, organiser of the Eurogamer Expo Indie Arcade.

"We had well over a hundred submissions to choose from last year, and with independent development going from strength to strength we're expecting many more this time."

Interested developers should visit the official site for more information and submission guidelines.

David Lilley, business development manager for Eurogamer, added "we're immensely proud to host the Indie Arcade, and it's great to be in partnership with a publisher as strong as SEGA.

"The arcade highlights some very different and offbeat games right next to the blockbuster titles that so many gamers come to the Eurogamer Expo to see. Video games are such a broad church now, and the Expo really reflects that."

The Eurogamer Expo is the biggest dedicated video games event in the UK, and takes place September 22-25 at Earls Court.
