Join us at GamePlay Space for an evening with Andres Diaz, Discord's Developer Relations Director and Eros Resmini, Discord's Chief Marketing Officer, as they discuss how to build highly engaged indie game communities.

They will give a brief presentation on Discord's heritage as an indie studio (Hammer & Chisel) and then dive into why players choose Discord and how they use it, and various ways that indies use the platform, ranging from private playtest channels to large public community servers. Plus, they'll go over the programs and tools that Discord offers, followed by a Q&A session.

Following the presentation, there will be food and open bar provided alongside a showcase of indie games created by members of the community like:

King of the Hat - Hyroglyphik
Anamorphine - Artifact 5
Cefore - Pixelz
Bootleg Systems - NEONABLE
Children of Zodiarcs - Cardboard Utopia
Numbers - Ululab
Spaceteam - Sleeping Beast Games
Primus Vita - Epsilon Games

... and more!

Places are limited so you MUST RSVP in order to attend!
