SIX (Seattle Indies Expo) is a one-day exhibition for independent game developers to get together, socialize, and show off their stuff. At SIX, you'll get to spend quality time with some of the friendliest and most down-to-earth devs around. What better way to escape the crowds of PAX than with the coolest of indie games?
Does it cost anything to attend?
Nope - attending the Seattle Indies Expo is completely free!
Where are you guys at?
We're at Melrose Market Studios, a six minute walk away from PAX. Check out the map!
Do I need a PAX badge to attend?
Not at all! We're hosting this on PAX weekend, but SIX is currently separate from PAX. Everyone's invited!
Do you guys have an after-party?
Heck yeah we do! Between 6pm - 9pm, we'll be serving free snacks, free beer, and as always, free indie games!
I have another question!
Awesome - we love questions. If you're interested in becoming an exhibitor, sponsor, or volunteer, just keep scrolling. If you're looking to dive into the Seattle indie game scene, check out our Facebook page or seattleindies.org. For anything else, contact us!
Interested in submitting your game to SIX? Before you begin, please be aware of the following requirements, process, and general information:
Requirements and Limitations
Seattle Indies Expo has a juror panel consisting of volunteers from the Seattle Indies community. Each game will receive a minimum of 4-5 jurors playing and reviewing a game. At the end of their written review is a simple Yes / No question for whether they think they game should be shown at SIX. If a game received 4 Yes's and 1 No, its final score is 4 / 5 = 80%. At the end of jurying, we select the 25 games with the highest scores (skipping games that do not meet the regional requirement or are already in PAX or IMB).
Our jury process guarantees that:
SIX is making an effort this year to involve all of the Seattle Indies community, not just the ones who have a game ready to show! Community members interested in volunteering their time can now contribute to the SIX line-up selection process as volunteer jurors.
What are the requirements?
If you're a roll-up-your-sleeves kinda person and would like to help us on the day of SIX, get in touch! We could always use help setting up, breaking down, running errands, helping the exhibitors, and sitting at the front table waving at people. Food and a swiggidy-sweet T-shirt will be provided as thanks for your time!
