Indie Dev day showcased at Develop Liverpool

Following a successful launch at this year’s Develop in Brighton, the Indie Dev Day conference and networking event is returning to run alongside Develop in Liverpool on 24 November at the Hilton Liverpool Hotel.

Indie Dev Day in Liverpool will feature an afternoon of half-hour sessions designed specifically for established independent studios, new start-ups, developers teetering on the brink of becoming an indie, freelance developers and students.

The sessions will give delegates a chance to hear – and share – experiences in developing games for emerging platforms such as XBLA, PSN, Steam, Facebook and iOS. They will also have access to valuable case study material from successful indie developers – big and small. In addition Indie Dev delegates have the opportunity to meet other developers and key industry figures at the networking party at the end of the day.

”We introduced the indie-focused content at Develop in Brighton to reflect the recent huge growth of indie developers and micro studios producing great games, and we were overwhelmed by how popular the Indie Dev Day was,” commented Andy Lane managing director of organiser Tandem Events.

“Because the north west of England has always been a hotbed of creative talent and there’s currently a growing community of indies emerging in this region, it’s perfect timing to bring Indie Dev Day to Liverpool with dedicated content focused solely on the needs of the indie.”
