Leaves are falling, coffee is being infiltrated by pumpkin spice, and grocery stores are selling candy by the barrel full. Autumn is here, with Halloween on its way and our next #GamesMatter event close on its heels.

We’d like to give you a preview of our #Indieween event through this post, so all of yous can be prepared for our next indie game holiday.

What is #Indieween?

#Indieween is our Halloween indie game celebration! We’ll be throwing a huge amount of indie games at the community as if they were candy. We also will be featuring developers who donate game codes to the #Indieween cause in streamed and written interviews.

On October 31st, Halloween(!) we will be giving away hundreds of random, spare keys donated to us by the members of the community as our “Trick or Treat” event. Be sure to follow #Indieween and #GamesMatter on that day to participate!

What is #GamesMatter?

#GamesMatter is a series of social media events organized by the folks at IndieGamerChick.com and IndieGamerTeam.com.The goal is to simply put games in the hands of those looking for something to play, and get them talking about some indies that need exposure. In each major #GamesMatter event, we aim to..

  • Interview developers in both written and video format
  • Stream featured games on Twitch.tv or similar sites
  • Give away up to several hundred free games to the indie game community.

Rules for #GamesMatter events

  • One code per game, per household.
  • Codes must be redeemed immediately.
  • Tell us about the game you won! Did you like it? Why or why not? Would you recommend it to others? Details!
  • Have fun. Be chill. Don’t be rude to organizers or participants.

By submitting your game to participate, we will make you a custom “digital booth” page. Your digital booth will have screenshots and info about your game and a schedule for any giveaways or interviews.
