Indie Blast

This year, the event will offer even more opportunities for indie developers: 90 teams will take part in the exhibition of indie projects! They will demonstrate their products at booths provided free of charge and will have a chance to present their projects and find potential investors.

Conditions of participation in Indie Blast are simple: a preliminary application is required. Epic Games has prepared a present for participants that developed their games on Unreal Engine 4 – unique branding of booths and a bonus in the form of premium tickets.

That is not all! Indie teams will be nominated for Indie Blast Awards, the winners of which will receive prizes from conference partners.

Indie battles

Gathering 2018 will also feature traditional and beloved by the audience battles – competitions on game design and art, where volunteers demonstrate their skills and receive feedbacks from experts and prizes from sponsors for first places. This year, there will be six battles, like previously: three on game design and three battles on art.


However, Games Gathering 2018 offers not only interesting lectures and engaging competitions but also a possibility to communicate in informal surroundings.

Two parties, where guests can talk to old friends, make new useful acquaintances, find partners, and build business contacts! A pre-party will take place before the conference. On December 8, premium tickets owners will attend the main party, the partner of which is Epic Games.

Games Gathering 2018 is an opportunity to improve your level of proficiency, talk to colleagues, learn about VR and AR novelties, and assess the latest game projects.
