Here's the lineup for GDC Europe's Innovative Games Showcase

GDC Europe organizers reveal the games that will be featured in the big European Innovative Games Showcase during the Indie Games Summit at GDC Europe next month.

GDC officials are happy to reveal the lineup of games that will be featured in the second annual European Innovative Games Showcase during the 2015 Independent Games Summit at GDC Europe in Cologne next month, which itself includes a variety of talks from industry luminaries on the art and business of independent game development.

If you're planning to register for GDC Europe, now is the time to do so -- the Early Bird registration period ends tomorrow at 11:59 PM Eastern, and with it goes your opportunity to save 200 euros on an All Access Pass to the show, which grants you access to a slew of great talks like the European Innovative Games Showcase.

Games featured in the showcase were selected from a wide variety of applicants by game designers Lea Schönfelder anJonatan Van Hove (who will also MC the event) working alongside the IGS' European advisors Kitty Calis, Amnesia's Thomas Grip, Copenhagen Game Collective's Lau Korsgaard and a panel of judges from across the industry.

These judges include Marie Foulston (Wild Rumpus), Damir Veapi (Soundspeed), Zuraida Buter (zo-ii), Indie Fund's John Polson and IGF Chairman Emeritus Simon Carless.

The Showcase winners receive free Speaker Passes to the event, which afford full access to every GDC Europe session and the massive gamescom trade/public event. They will also have the opportunity to give 5-minute microtalks at the final session of GDC Europe's IGS to showcase what's special about their current project.

Without further ado, here are the games selected to take part in the 2015 European Innovative Games Showcase:

The creators of these games will be on hand to demonstrate their titles, many of which are making public debuts, and talk about them as the finale of the Indie Games Summit on the Monday of GDC Europe. Last year's inaugural EIGS is viewable now in video form on GDC Vault.

Of course, the European Innovative Games Showcase -- which is open to all pass-holders at the show -- is just one of many sessions that have been announced for GDC Europe 2015. Full details on all announced talks for the conference can be found over on the GDC Europe Schedule Builder, and early birds can still register for GDC Europe 2015 by July 8th to save 200 euros on an All Access Pass. 

The conference itself will take place August 3rd and 4th in Cologne, Germany, and all GDC Europe passes also allow visitors to attend the co-located Gamescom.

GDC Europe 2015 will also continue to offer business and matchmaking opportunities to all attendees with a developer-focused Expo Floor area and networking events throughout the show. For more information, please visit the GDC Europe website.
