How do I sign up?

In order to sign up as an exhibitor of Indie House, you must meet the 3 requirements below.

  1. #1: If you consider yourself an indie game developer, you’re eligible to sign up.
  2. #2: We’ll conduct a screening process for every Indie House applicant to make sure 2 things
    1. 1. You are indeed an independent game developer that needs all the resource you can get.
      *We welcome all members of the game industry to participate in Taipei Game Show, but please note that we will have to check for your qualification because Indie House is a program designed to help real independent game developers with limited resources.
    2. 2. The progress of your project is ready for showcasing with a playable demo.
      *We do not judge or comment on whether if your game is ‘good or bad’, that is up to the professional juries in Indie Game Award, but we do have to make sure that everyone has a playable demo on site. If you’re spending time and money to showcase without a playable demo, years of experience tells us that the feedback will be next to nothing.
    The result will be announced on Oct. 21st. We cannot promise that everyone will definitely get in. If you cannot accept this premise, please think twice before signing up.
  3. #3: GLHF, and make your trip to Taipei Game Show awesome.
