Welcome to INDIE HUb

Our Mission

We strive to create a community of indie developers and support them in connecting and collaborating with each other. To achieve this, we created a variety of opportunities.​

Indie Hub helps developers improve their projects through events, workshops and feedback. In addition, we offer the chance to present to publishers, investors, business professionals and end users at our own game fair and other events organized by Indie Hub.

Our Events

Indie Game Fest

Indie Game Fest is a curated, annual exhibition of Indie games in Cologne. The event is aimed at Indie developers, representatives of the gaming industry, and private users. Our goal is to connect Indie studios in Germany and Europe and generate more visibility and attention for their creative and innovative products. 
The next Indie Game Fest will take place in June 2023.

Indie Campus

At Indie Campus, we offer talks by experts on various topics to share knowledge within the industry.

 

The first edition focused on the topic of retention & monetization.
The second edition addressed the topics of tools and PR. 
In fall of 2023, we want to organize a new edition of the INDIE Campus.

 

Our Meetups

Indie Developer Stammtisch 

With our Indie Developer Stammtisch, we are open and welcoming to everyone who is involved in the indie game industry. Our goal is to create a community that networks and supports each other in the indie game industry as they develop and design their games. The Stammtisch met for the first time in a bar in November 2018 in Cologne, Germany but now mostly takes place online.

Stefan Schmidt Co-Founder & managing Director

Managing Director Stefan Schmidt 

After working for the Private Health Insurance Association and for one of the largest social media platforms in the world, Stefan decided to dedicate himself to his passion for computer games. Supporting young talent was and is particularly important to him and since he has always loved indie games, he founded the Indie Developer Stammtisch in November 2018.

After visiting an industry event, the idea to create a trade show only for indies was born. In November 2019 he successfully organized the first Indie Game Fest.
