Seeking Game Projects in Development, Deadline to Submit to Demo Spotlight – 4/6

The Game Demo Spotlight returns to the 9th Annual Games for Change Festival and applications are now live!

Criteria and application here. [Update: The deadline to apply has passed and the link is no longer active.]

The deadline to submit for the Game Demo Spotlight is Friday, April 6 at 11:59 PM EST.

Up to 7 projects “in progress” will be selected. Each demo will be presented by its developer to the Games for Change Festival audience. A panel of funders and designers will also provide live feedback for each demo. Projects in last year’s Demo Spotlight received concrete feedback on ways in which to advance their project and also secured key new collaborators to assist with design and publishing.

Each demo presentation will be limited to a 5 minute live presentation. We recommend 5-7 slides or 5 slides and a 1 minute video of gameplay or trailer. The slides should visually inspire rather than restate your points. Limited or no text is absolutely encouraged.

Your presentation will be followed by a 5 minute Q&A from the critics and around 2 minutes from the audience.

Accepted games will receive 2 complimentary passes to the Festival and will be notified on April 30.


Registration for the 9th Annual Games for Change Festival is also live. Take advantage of early bird prices by April 20 before they go up by 30%.
