iFEST is a free 1-day festival for independent game developers – from new startups and established studios to anyone who thinks they might have what it takes to imagine, design, build and market games indie-style.
Gameplay for profit is increasingly serious business and the industry is diversifying: flexible teams, fresh ideas, rapid development and the ability to self-publish are key to achieving success. Equally important are a strong community and vibrant creative culture to sustain it! So – whether you’ve released an indie game, are planning to, are studying or keen to start – come along and join the thriving indie community!
iFEST has talks, workshops and an indie Games Competition to showcase the best undiscovered games in indie development! Our sponsors include Sony and StormFX – offering awesome prizes for iFEST Game Dev Comp.
Special guest stars like HalfBrick, The Voxel Agents & Defiant Development will share how they got started, tricks and traps for beginners and other need-to-knows of creating your own game.
Workshops on Game Art, Design, Programming and Marketing will illuminate the Art and Science of making games. For those already practicing – tutorials offer practical tips on turning a ‘good’ game into a great one.
