Join the Global Indie Competition

The Global Indie Competition is about to start. A unique competition for indie game developers, in which they have a chance to grab many valuable prizes by submitting their video games.

Join the Global Indie Competition!

Global Indie Competition is a completely new venture aimed at indie game developers from all over the world. The main purpose of the contest is to give publicity to the best-submitted projects and to support their authors in their further development. The winners of this year's edition will receive extremely attractive prizes, which will undoubtedly help in achieving both of the aforementioned goals.

Exhibit game in Poznan!

The main prize in the competition is a free stand during the Poznań Game Arena or Game Industry Conference. In addition, the winner will gain the right to compete in the prestigious PGA Awards plebiscite and face the creators of indie games who will be present at Poznań Game Arena 2022.

Win promotion & acceleration from Xsolla

In addition, the strategic partner of the event, Xsolla, has prepared a set of excellent awards, which will go not only to the winner but also to the top five winners. The prize pot includes such prizes as support from the Funding Club, a monthly subscription of 80 level Talent, or a ticket to Xsolla Accelerator.

Hosts and the partner of the event 

The project is organized on the occasion of two key events in the gaming industry - Poznań Game Arena and the Game Industry Conference, which gathers tens of thousands of gaming fans each year.

PGA is the largest computer games and multimedia entertainment fair in CEE, held from October 7-9, 2022. Each year, during the PGA, you can play dozens of the latest premiere and pre-premiere titles using the newest gear for players. The event is complemented by top-level esports tournaments, cosplay shows, meetings with influencers, and a wonderful indie games zone, where you can play over 100 titles.

Game Industry Conference (October 6th-9th, 2022) is an event intended for those who would like to improve their knowledge about game development. The conference program is filled with dozens of inspiring conversations and lectures, where well-known and respected game developers willingly share their invaluable experiences. Moreover, the event offers the best B2B opportunities to reach industry professionals from Poland and most of Central and Eastern Europe thanks to the meeting system, which helps you to find the proper business partners you are looking for.

The strategic partner of this year's edition of the Game Industry Competition is Xsolla - an international video game commerce company with a robust and powerful set of tools and services designed specifically for the gaming industry. As an innovative leader in game commerce, Xsolla continues to solve the inherent complexities of global distribution, marketing, and monetization so its partners can grow audience, engagement, and revenue. Xsolla has prepared a set of many attractive awards that will go to the highest-rated projects. 

 Networking parties for exhibitors are nice part of PGA and Game Industry Conference :)
