Co-ordinating and MC-ing the showcase and helping pick the winners will be game designers Lea Schönfelder anJonatan Van Hove, working alongside a number of other judges to be confirmed in the near future.

Overall, the showcase will be curated to include a wide variety of innovative or experimental games, including diverse and new ways to showcase gameplay, art style, play style or anything in between. Organizers are looking specifically for European-resident creators to showcase in this local show. Entries are open until June 6th.
