Gamescom 2016 – Indie Arena Booth

Hyper Light Up will be at Gamescom 2016 next week in order to provide you with all the news and updates on the indie games that will be shown.

You can check out the full roster of games that the Indie Arena Booth will have for GC2016 on their website. We are quite excited to go and check as many of those as we can!

During Gamescom 2016, you can visit Hyper Light Up to check out all of the indie games we will be checking out. There will be a dedicated category of news articles for that reason with a menu option up top for your ease of finding all of the Gamescom Indies stuff.

We will be talking to indie devs, playing their games, asking them all sorts of stuff about them and coming back here every night to inform on what we’ve seen. Last year, we did this for about 50 different indie games…so stay tuned!


In case you weren’t aware of what the Indie Arena Booth is, here’s the complete explanation as given by the team behind this amazing initiative:

“The Indie Arena Booth is an open home for independent game developers from all over the world, hosted by the German indie community “Indie Arena”. It is a platform for the developers in person as well as a show case for the colorful and vivid game scene between Avantgarde and AAA. With over 620m² of space and over 60 participating developers from 15 different countries the goal of the Indie Arena Booth is to allow the small developers stand out in the gamescom craze.

The booth is being organized by a five people team led by Oliver Eberlei (Hammer Labs). The initiative arose from the Indie Arena community, a developer forum for studios and freelancers from the DACH region. The Indie Arena is a forum open for all developers that consider their work “independent” and who share the same values.”
