E3-alternative press conference Horizon is back, and wants your game


May 7, 2014 | By Christian Nutt




E3 has long been known for its major press conferences -- and indies have recently taken the stage at events like these. Still, there's room for a different kind of showcase with its own perspective and intent.

For the second year, Venus Patrol's Horizon showcase will take place in Los Angeles the same week as the industry event with its aim to showcase "beautiful, original games from studios both small and large." It is a joint production of Venus Patrol founder and IGF chairman Brandon Boyer and LA's Museum of Contemporary Art, and will take place at 10 AM PST on Thursday, June 12th, 2014.

Last year, Horizon saw game announcements from celebrated independent developers -- such as a collaboration between Robin Hunicke (Journey) and Keita Takahashi (Katamari Damacy) and Phil Fish's Fez II. It also showcased Double Fine's Broken Age, Capy's Below, and more.

If you're interested in submitting your game for inclusion into this year's event, there's a survey at the Venus Patrol blog which you can fill out to be considered.

Curious about how Horizon played out in 2013? You can read Gamasutra's report from the event or watch a recording of the presentation above.
