Dutch Games Association partnered with Ukie and other European associations for the launch of The EuroPlay Games Contest which will take place on 28th August during Gamescom. The EuroPlay Games Contest: ‘Eurovision of games’ will show the best unreleased games from across Europe in a live showcase, in a Eurovision-style.
The EuroPlay Games Contest will be a Live digital event taking place during gamescom and devcom. Each participating country will select one national representative game developer to submit a 2 minute 30 second video (maximum length) of their, as yet unreleased game.
The game videos will be showcased on Friday 28 August in a live show, hosted by leading video game show presenter Mr Midas, across all the main digital channels including twitter, twitch and facebook with all viewers invited to vote for their favourite game. The live show will conclude with the announcement of the winner, decided entirely by public vote on twitter.
With the fate of the winner resting in the hands of the public, the video will clearly need to show off the quality of the game. But remember this is also your chance to impress your potential customers so make sure your voice-over adds all the key game details and throw in some humour!
But that is not all. Whilst the live show is broadcast, the finalists will be hosted by Ukie in their own breakout rooms on zoom. We will be encouraging the media, journalists and potential partners to visit the studios to find out more about the game and to explore promotional and commercial opportunities.
Apply your game for this great show!
