XBox Live Indie Games Uprising Returns, accepting nominations
Following the critical success of the last Indie Games Uprising, the organizers are back with another edition of the event and are also currently accepting nominations.
The event is scheduled to start on 22nd August and over 30 titles have already been submitted for consideration in the event. Interested developers can submit their titles by hitting this link.
“We are seeking talented developers to help lead the charge with their most polished titles. Think your latest work has what it takes to showcase the diversity, quality, and potential available on the platform? Then submit it as a candidate for the Summer Uprising! It is open to all unreleased titles, as well as previously released ones which may have gone through extensive overhauls,” reads the official announcement on the Indie Games Summer Uprising site.
The event will showcase two titles every week starting 22nd August through 12th September and also falls parallel to Microsoft’s Dream.Build.Play indie event which will have finalists announced on 22nd August. Microsoft have also announced that the DBP eligibility does not affect developer’s options on when and how to release any of their titles. Microsoft will also begin their annual Summer of Arcade Promotion on July 20th.
