Day of the Devs might come to mind from their showcase-within-a-conference installation recently at the Game Developers Conference, but the organizers are better known for their standalone all-day free-to-attend event held in San Francisco around Halloween. Day of the Devs, heading into its sixth year, is fast becoming a tradition.
While specifics haven’t been publically announced for the 2018 iteration of this event, the call for game submissions is now open. Developers from all backgrounds, who are working on any genre of indie game title, are encouraged to submit their details to show off and demo their game. However, according to info in an announcement email, Day of the Devs organizers ae apparently on the lookout for strong multiplayer game experiences and functionality as well as games with alternate types of controllers and unusual or interesting hardware.
“Where? How?” you may breathlessly ask, eyes bright with excitement. To get started on submitting a game for consideration, check out their Google Docs link. Game submissions will be accepted until September 24th, with the full game line-up and event details announced in October.
Last year’s Day of the Devs brought in more than 75 indie game titles for over 7,000 attendees to peruse and test drive, with swag, music, and drinks available throughout the day. Day of the Devs is organized by game developer Double Fine and creative production company iam8bit.
