Mar 14, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Indies games have always been the touchstone for innovative game experiences and award-winning titles like Hades and Valheim are inspiring gamers and the industry as a whole . This panel will discuss the ever-changing notion of “indie” and take some time to celebrate the impact these innovating gamemakers have made to the mainstream. We’ll cover the opportunities and challenges for independent gamemakers, why they do what they do, and how the panelists imagine where the indie scene will go in the years to come.
