Successful indie game developers will be available to discuss cutting-edge graphics and gameplay technology.
Siggraph 2014 has teamed up with Media Indie Exchange (The MIX) to bring the first-ever Siggraph indie game showcase to its Exhibition, August 12-14, at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia.
As part of this special collaboration with The MIX, attendees will have access to exclusive presentations with the game developers on indie projects featuring a wide variety of cutting-edge graphics and gameplay that in some instances is still in the experimental stages.
“The MIX brings a high level of talent, creativity, and quality to the table. We are excited to bring this experience to the Siggraph community and put a spotlight on it,” says Siggraph 2014 Conference Chair Dave Shreiner. “Hopefully, speaking with indie developers first-hand will inspire individuals and small teams in attendance to ‘go for it’ with their own projects.”
The MIX team has been organizing showcases for independent game developers to present their projects to media and industry leaders since 2012. Siggraph 2014 will mark the first MIX showcase outside of the United States.
“The MIX at Siggraph 2014 shows the ongoing impact of indie studios on the industry,” said Justin Woodward of The MIX. “This event provides another platform where we can help share advances from this world with new audiences.”
