Indie Arena Booth at Gamescom 2017

Indie Arena Booth
Indie Arena Booth

I love indie games. Indie games are made with passion and people putting something they’ve created out there for all to experience. Not everyone will like what they’ve made, but it’s not about them, it’s about those other people who really connect and understand the game that was created. Indie games come in many forms and types but one thing is usually true, they aren’t backed by deep pockets and don’t have the money to showcase their product at big conventions like Gamescom 2017.

That’s where Indie Arena Booth comes in. Since 2013 they’ve had a booth set up in Gamescom to show case great indie games. Back in 2013 they hosted 13 games, had 40 square meters of floor space, and actually built their booth themselves to save money. This year they are featuring 80 games from 26 countries and their both size will be 1,000 square meters! This is huge and I think it’s great for indie developers. Here are all the games featured this year.
