Day of the Dev: The Game Awards Edition announced for December 6

Day of the Devs is the biggest indie game celebration of the year and aims to reach a broader audience with today’s announcement. In December, Day of the Devs: The Game Awards Edition will showcase indie games and their developers alongside one of the biggest stages with the Game Awards. The showcase will host a livestream on December 6th with a free in-person event happening in Los Angeles on December 8th. Full details can be found in today’s announcement:

“The goal of The Game Awards is to celebrate as many games as possible,” said Geoff Keighley, creator and executive producer of The Game Awards. “We’re excited to welcome Day of the Devs: TGA Edition to our week-long celebration of games, which will further spotlight independent games from around the world.”

As always, Day of the Devs is looking for unique, diverse and beautiful indie games to spotlight. Developers from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply and games/projects of all types and genres will be considered. Day of the Devs is completely free to participating developers, subsidized and sponsored by participating AAA partners, giving indie games a major platform without a financial barrier to entry.

Independent developers can submit their games for consideration for the in-person event at this link until September 20th. Select games from the in-person event will be invited to participate in the livestream showcase.

To make room in the calendar for this new event in Los Angeles, the original Day of the Devs live show –which has taken place in San Francisco for the last decade–will be moving to a new date in the first few months of the year. Because of this, the next live Day of the Devs live show in San Francisco will not be this November, but a few months later in early 2024.

“It will be hard to wait the extra time until our next live show in San Francisco,” said Tim Schafer, founder of Double Fine Productions and co-founder of Day of the Devs. “But we promise that because of this move, the San Francisco show will be better than ever, taking place at a time when even more folks will be in town so that they can attend in person. So now you have even more choices where to see great indie games and meet the devs who made them.”
