The organizer of Digital Dragons 2021 this year decided to host two online events across May 13th-14th. Starting tomorrow, players and the game industry professionals from all around the world will have an opportunity to be a part of Indie Celebration and Business Meet Up. The main Digital Dragons conference will happen on 7-8 September.
We covered their event last year and it proved to be very popular. You can read about last year’s Indie Celebration HERE.
Indie Celebration is an international competition for independent developers. It’s a great opportunity to present their games to a wider audience and win prestigious awards. For many creators, competition may become a gateway to global media, investors, and publishers. Players will be able to check free demos of the most interesting and unique indie games nominated from over 250 submitted to Indie Celebration titles. Games will be available and featured on Steam.

The jury of the Indie Celebration contest selects Best Indie Games – the top three productions from all the finalists, while gamers are able to test games on Steam and choose the Community Vote Award. Voting is open until the 13th of May, 11:59 p.m. CEST for everyone. The winners of Digital Dragons will be announced on the 14th of May.
The prizes are provided by AMD, a leader in high-performing computing, graphics and visualization technologies, that has been working with Digital Dragons for several years on events supporting indie game developers.
