The Big Indie Fest @ ReVersed is a new event created launching in July 2018 which is designed to celebrate and support the best in indie games on multiple platforms.

The event will span 4 days – with the first two focused on business activity connecting over 300 developers with publishers, platforms and related service companies, sharing some knowledge via talks and workshops, showcasing games and networking with the match-making system.

After 2 days of business, the event opens up at the weekend to welcome the players themselves and we’re expecting an audience of over 4,000 to attend.


Who should attend and why?

This is the ‘only’ business focused games industry-event in Austria and is designed specifically to celebrate indie games and connect indie developers with publishers, press, platforms and other professional companies who can help them succeed.

The event is open to all indies (regardless of platform or experience) from student developers to ‘Triple I’ developers as well as related game professionals who’d like to meet them.



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.

Talks, Panels & Workshops

A full talk track with topics ranging from engineering, to industry trends to panels about community. Come and listen to some of the most interesting speakers in the industry!

The event takes place in the incredible surrounds of Vienna’s MuseumsQuarters (formerly the Imperial stables) at the very heart of the city providing easy access for attendees both locally and from across Europe.

The event will take over 2 full halls (twice as large as previous ReVersed 2017) as well as fringe events in the surrounding space.

Spread over 2 locations to form one big one, the Ovalhall and Arena21 transform into one heck of a conference space.
