Games will be selected by the 100% Indie team based on their innovation; remarkable artwork, music and sound; engaging user experience; and the creative passion shown by the developer.
The successful Indie Hero developers will have their games played live on the 100% Indie stand and also be showcased in a video reel playing continuously on the booth. Visitors to E3 will be asked to score their favorite games leading to a ‘Game of the Day’ and an overall ‘ 100% Indie Game of the Show.’
