Los Angeles, CA (October 9, 2023) - Independent horror publisher and production company DreadXP — in partnership with prominent indie horror game curator Hürcan Köse (HorrorVisuals) and The Media Indie Exchange (The MIX) — is excited to announce the frightening lineup of independent developers and publishers featured in The Indie Horror Game Showcase, which will livestream on October 19, 2023. The showcase is packed with exciting world premiere announcements, trailers, and new updates for some of the most anticipated video games in the horror genre.
A partial list of studios presenting at The Indie Horror Game Showcase includes:
