Nordic Game Indie Night Issues Call for Entries

Copenhagen Game Collective is now accepting submissions for the Nordic Game Indie Night showcase to take place at May 19th.


Copenhagen Game Collective, who’s organizing the Nordic Game Indie Night, just issued the call for entries for the 6th annual Nordic Game Indie Night showcase, to be held at Slagthuset in Malmö on the 19th of May.

Held the evening before the Nordic Game Conference, the Nordic Game Indie Night showcases the best indie games from the Nordic region. During the last couple of years, the event has grown to become almost as large in terms of attendance, as big brother, Nordic Game Conference, even if it only lasts one day. No doubt helped by the fact, that Nordic Game Indie Night is free.


This year, the Nordic Game Indie Night will also be accepting board games, as well as the digital games, that has been featured the previous years. And the event will also be open to hybrid games that mixes the two formats.

Nordic Game Indie Night is open to all developers, who have at least some part of their team located on the Nordic Region, including Denmark, Finland, Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, or the Åland Islands. You don’t have to be ethnically Nordic to qualify.

The only other requirement is that the team behind the game should have one member that will be able to attend the Nordic Game Conference from 20th – 22nd May in Malmö. Nordic Game Indie Night will provide travel and accommodation for one member of each selected games development team.


Copenhagen Game Collective explains on their webiste that the games selected to be showcased at the Nordic game Indie Night are not necessarily the best indie games in the region, but rather a cross section of what the Nordic indie scene has to offer.

The games that are selected will not be intended to be a list of the “Best Nordic Indie Games” but will instead celebrate the diversity of interesting projects that are being developed in the Nordic region.

Previous titles showcased at the Nordic Game Indie Night include Among The Sleepelse { Heart.break() }, Back to Bed, and The Swapper.


Digital games submitted for this year’s Nordic Game Indie Night will also be eligible for participation in the Speed Pitch event, which takes place in the “Investing in Games”-track in the Nordic Game Conference program. However, whether the game qualifies to participate in the pitch event will be decided by the conference organizers. If selected, the team will get a free pass for the conference as well as guidance on how to prepare for the Speed Pitch event.


Deadline for submissions is 23:59 on the 16th March and can be done through the Copenhagen Game Collective’s website here.
