ReVersed 2018


is the only business focused, games industry-event in Austria, both open to professionals and students from all over the world as well as showcasing the latest and greatest in experimental & socially critical, to mindless multiplayer fun to a greater audience.

For 2018, we are expecting more than 4000 visitors, including 500 Trade Visitors, and after three years of running a festival in the heart of Vienna, we’ve returned with new inspiration, new partners, and most of all: new games!


What’s new?

The Big Indie Pitch

For the first time ever, we are bringing The Big Indie Pitch to Austria: a global developer pitching competition series open to all types of independent developers of mobile, wearables, or handheld games, wherever they are based.

At each event a host of leading mobile game journalists and industry judges run the rule over a selection of pre-filtered games.

The developers are allowed 4 minutes (3 mins pitch, 1 min Q&A) to pitch to each judge table in a ‘speed dating’ style. Once everyone has pitched, the judges confer and pick the winners.

Aside from the chance to get their game in front of the leading media influencers and potential publisher partners, and gain invaluable real-time feedback, the top 3 teams also get to share a promotional prize package worth $thousands.


Need outsourcing for your latest project? Looking for a publisher? ReVersed is partnering with MeetToMatch, which brings you the most effective way for doing business in the games industry.

Through the online meeting platform, you can invite dozens of potential business partners to 30 minute, face-to-face meetings.

This service is included for every exhibitor and sponsor, and is available on certain ticket options.

The Venue

The MuseumsQuarters are at the vibrant center of the museumdistrict of the city of Vienna. Formerly the imperial stables, now cultural focal point: the perfect spot to show what games are made of!

Spread over 2 locations to form one big one, the Ovalhall and Arena21 transform into one heck of a mega-museum.
