Studios and publishers primed for new B2B pitching and content marketplace next month

Interface: 50 games firms signed up for May 14th event

Serious momentum is gathering behind Interface, our brand new games content marketplace for pitching and presenting new games and products. 

There are 50 games companies already signed up to take part in the all-day event that takes place on May 14th at Candid Arts, near Angel in Central London. 

Interface is organised by the teams behind Develop and its sister publication MCV, and aims to bring game creators together with investors, publishers and other potential partners with a mix of public expo, private meetings and breakout sessions.

  • The following are signed to take part as exhibitors, and/or are registered for private meetings: Grey Wizard, Grandline Studios, Temple Games, Player Research, Indigo Pearl, 505 Games, Green Man Loaded, Yippee, Total Eclipse, Freekstorm, Pixelbits, Antstream, MHT Game and Deuce.
  • A curated Indie Zonepresented by Unity will also welcome a further 10 studios and their games to the event
  • Plus we have a number of unannounced titles and studios set for attendance for private demos to publishers and potential partners.
  • Interface also has delegates signed up from a number of indie studios from across the UK including: Aniode, Butcherlab, Triangular Pixels, Hybrid Tech, Ground Shatter, Altered Gene, PixelBits, Abyssal Arts, The Great Unwashed, Semaeopus, Studio Pepwuper, Playrise Digital, QuizTix, I Fight Bears, Mudvark, Mbryonic and The Third Moon. 

Interface will connect developers of all sizes, start-ups and creators of new games with investors and backers – there are also planned breakout sessions on topics like better business practices, areas for studios looking to recruit, plus networking and lounge spaces. 

Key to the day is the Interface Meeting System, which connects studios and new games with potential publishers and investors – you register for the system (either as a delegate with a pitch or a meeting host) and we arrange your schedule for you.
