Indie Alley Showcase
For the third year in a row, XPO Game Festival is bringing some amazing indie game talent to Tulsa and giving local developers a shot at the spotlight! This year, we’re offering studios from around the world a shot at cash prizes, including our first annual Scissor-Tail Prize, which will be given to the best submission created here in Oklahoma!
Each game will be playable on the floor, and you’ll be able to meet their creators too! If you’ve ever wanted a peek at the creative process behind making video games, this is your chance. It’s also a great opportunity for would-be game developers to make some connections.
See all of our amazing games in our Indie Alley Showcase right here!
