“Independent game developers and publishers are a vital part of our industry and Summer Game Fest,” said Summer Game Fest curator Geoff Keighley in a press release. “I am excited to team up with Day of the Devs for these showcase events that will be filled with gameplay and updates from both independent and major publishers.”

Double Fine Productions founder and Day of the Devs co-founder Tim Schafer added, “Our goal with Day of the Devs has always been to shine a spotlight on creator-driven games, whether it’s one that’s already getting some buzz or something completely new and surprising that comes through the submission process.”

Amanda White and Jon Gibson, co-owners of iam8bit and co-founders of Day of the Devs, also added, “Each showcase will be jam-packed, from the extended gameplay previews that have become a Day of the Devs staple to some very special surprise debuts that you’ll never see coming. This is the Day of the Devs you’ve loved for the last eight years, yet crafted specifically for the digital space.”
