Discover the hottest indie games at #ddc2022!

50+ upcoming games will be presented at the devcom NRW Indie Expo!

The devcom NRW Indie Expo 2022 – Hybrid Edition funded by the Premier of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia will be part of devcom Developer Conference 2022!

This year, there are two ways for indie studios to participate: Online only, with a virtual booth or hybrid, with a booth on site and virtually in our event app. In both options, the participants will of course have access to unlimited matchmaking (online and/or on site).

30+ playable game projects will be shown on-site. Additionally, we will select playable projects to be presented in our virtual NRW Indie Expo 2022.
And don’t miss the Let’s Play sessions with all participating games on the devcom Twitch channel during #ddc2022 from August 22 to August 26!
