Indie Corner

 

The Indie Corner is home to all the independent games and developers nominated for a Gamer’s Voice Award. Here, each title is showcased in a public voting competition to see who will win one of the coveted Gamer’s Voice Awards, with each winner revealed on the night of the SXSW Gaming Awards.

Gamer’s Voice

The Gamer’s Voice Awards are open for all entries from Monday, June 25 – Friday, December 7. The Gamer’s Voice Awards are unique from the primary Gaming Awards categories as only indie developers and teams with titles released (or slated to be released) in either the 2018 or 2019 calendar years will qualify for consideration.

Nominees for the Gamer’s Voice Awards, as selected exclusively by the SXSW Gaming staff who play every entry, will receive an exclusive space in the Indie Corner on the SXSW Gaming Expo floor to exhibit their nominated title. From there, Gaming Expo attendees will have the chance to play each nominated title and vote to determine the winner of each award, which will be announced during the Gaming Awards ceremony at SXSW Gaming 2019.

Enter the Gamer’s Voice Awards


SXSW Gaming 2019 takes place in the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas from Friday, March 15 – Sunday, March 17.
