At GDC Europe earlier this year ten indie game makers took to the stage for the second annual European Innovative Games Showcase, a curated exhibition of innovative or experimental games accompanied by presentations from their creators on game design, artistic expression, and more.
Coordinating and MC-ing the showcase were game designers Lea Schönfelder and Jonatan Van Hove, who were part of a panel of judges that selected games like We'll Meet Again, Aboard the Lookinglass and Kill Box for exhibition in the showcase.
The showcase is worth watching: it moves at a pretty brisk clip since it has so many different games to cover, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a greater concentration of diverse design ideas (one of the microtalks is on "alternative uses for hands") in a single hour-long GDC Europe talk.
Speakers in this hour-long GDC Europe 2015 panel include, in no particular order: Lea Schönfelder, Adam Vian, Matteo Pozzi, Ivan Notaros, Armel Gibson, Tom DeMajo, Malath Abbas, Trine Laier, Lise Saxtrup, Henry Hoffman, George Buckenham, Claudia Molinari, Joel Nystrom, Tim Garbos, Jonatan Van Hove and Tom Vian.
If you missed them in person, you can now watch the entire showcase for free via the GDC Vault.
