We all know that June is where the hottest gaming action happens with conventions, E3 (or this year technically ‘NotE3’) announcements, launches and SO MANY SALES! This year Wired are ensuring that the indie scene parties just as hard with the announcement of the Wired #SummerOfIndieGaming!
A month long celebration of brand new trailers, competitions, sales, a game launch and a couple of announcements along the way! We aren’t cruel enough to just tease you like that though, so let’s get a quick run down of everything included in the #SummerOfIndieGaming, what we’ve already done, and what you can look forward to!
Wired’s Summer of Indie Gaming Schedule Includes:
3rd – 10th June – Steam Publisher Sale (This has been and gone, we hope you picked up something nice!)
– 8th June – OTK Festival [Gori: Cuddy Carnage] Gori took part in the OTK festival where it showcased by Top streamer Asmongold and friends amongst a whole host of other fantastic indies for the community to discover!– 9th June – Upload VR Showcase [Tin Hearts] Tin Hearts marched onto the Upload VR showcase!
We released TWO brand new trailers during the IGN Summer Of Gaming (TOTALLY not related to our indie summer – honest!) that you can now catch directly on #WiredLive! Catch them here if you missed out!
– 11th June – Guerrilla Collective [The Last Worker] If that wasn’t enough Last Worker content for you, we also dropped a deep dive walkthrough into the world of The Last Worker exclusively during the Guerrilla Collectives GC3 show!Keep your eyes peeled to #WiredLive for that very soon!
