Indie Prize, a scholarship program for independent game developers created by Computer Games Association (CGA), has published the full list of participants for August’s showcase at Casual Connect USA 2017. 40 finalists will showcase their games to conference guests during three days of the event on August 1-3, 2017, at Benaroya Hall, 200 University St., Seattle, Washington, USA.
Indie Prize accepted game submissions until May 31 and received applications from 41 countries around the world. After the submission form was closed, 24 judges started the selection process to see who would receive the international Indie Prize scholarship and be invited to showcase their games to game industry professionals during Casual Connect USA. Along with a showcase table and free accommodations, indie developers are provided with two free all-access passes to Casual Connect, granting access to the Indie Prize Showcase, educational sessions and networking parties. The best games from the showcase will be awarded at the 19th Indie Prize Awards ceremony in ten different categories at 3PM on August 3 in the Taper Auditorium at Benaroya Hall.
