Announcing The Escapist Indie Showcase, premiering on June 11


Look at all these indies!

Dtoid sister site, The Escapist, is proud to announce that they’ve partnered with GOG.com to host their very first Indie Showcase event from June 11-14, 2020.

This completely digital event will begin on June 11 with a "direct"-style showcase on YouTube, where they'll be showing off over 70 different indie games from developers all around the world. The showcase will include new reveals and lots of gameplay, and even had developers create short little developer diaries so you could meet the passionate people behind the games you'll be playing.

Following the Indie Showcase, from June 12-14 they will be providing post-show coverage on YouTube and Twitch featuring many of the games you saw in the showcase via in-depth hands-on demos, pre-recorded gameplay videos, and interviews with the developers.

There is also a landing page for the entire showcase where you can watch the livestreams and find every game that we're showcasing. The games will be added to the page after the showcase premieres on June 11.

We at EG are very excited to put on this event to bookend another year of The Escapist's rejuvenation effort as we work to provide a positive and fun atmosphere for our viewers to escape to, all while supporting the independent developers that have lost out on many opportunities to showcase their games due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you'd like to support this event, we are taking on further sponsors and donations. If you're interested in sponsoring, please get in touch via email ([email protected]). If you'd like to donate to support the creation of this event, please follow the link.

Schedule of Events:

  • June 11 -- The Escapist Indie Showcase (3 pm - 5 pm EST) on YouTube
  • June 12-14 -- The Escapist Indie Showcase Post-Show (11 am - 7 pm EST) on YouTube and Twitch
