Google has announced that in September the company will hold its first Google Play Indie Games Festival in San Francisco. The event is aimed at showcasing recent and upcoming releases of top indie games in front of consumers and industry influencers and give them the chance to try them out. This will allow the indie developers an opportunity to expand their networks, gain real-time feedback and improve discoverability in Google Play for their app.
If you are an interested developer, you can submit your app now for a chance to attend the event. There are some limitations as to who can submit though. You will need to be a U.S. or Canadian developer with less than 15 full-time staff members, and games have to be published after January 1, 2016 or anticipated to be published before December 31, 2016.
