Benefits & New Showcase Opportunities for Indie Studio Affiliates

12 May 2020

There has never been a better time to join the IGDA as an indie studio. Not only is membership only $200/yr for over $6,000 in marketing and other benefits, but the IGDA is working on an exciting project to truly shine the spotlight on its indie partners.

Showcase your game to top publishers and influencers! The IGDA is currently finalizing an indie showcase and awards show for an online games festival on a high profile platform. We’re ironing out the details with the platform currently, but we are gathering indie titles to propose for the showcase. If your game is in a vertical slice (polished alpha) or later state, please contact us to be included.

Being a studio affiliate not only provides priority for opportunities like this one, but countless benefits that are valued at over $6,000/yr for only $200/yr for indie developers with 15 or fewer employees/contractors.

These great benefits include:

  • IGDA Member benefits for all employees, including full Resource Library access and discounts on conferences and more
  • Free job postings and featured job placement on the IGDA Career Center
