Call For Submissions: EGX London

By Mike Gamble

The UE4 team is going on the road again! This time we’ll have a major presence at EGX London from the 25-28 September, and we’re looking for great games to showcase at the event.

If you’re a UE4 subscriber, and you’re ready for people to see your awesome project, then this opportunity is for you. Nominate your game to take a demo spot on the Unreal Engine stand at the UK’s premier consumer gaming event. Epic has eight spots available and submissions start today!

The EGX exhibition has grown into a major event at Earls Court in London, organised by the nice chaps who run Eurogamer. Over the four days of the show more than 70,000 people pass through the doors, all of whom are passionate about games. There’s also a large media presence at the event, which means that your work will get immense exposure both inside and outside of the hall.

We’re looking for compelling playable games to showcase on the stand. Remember this is a family event, so we need content that is age appropriate. All types of games are interesting, and extra marks will go to anything that is particularly original, eye catching and hasn’t been seen before.

We’ll provide you with a pod that will include a beefy PC setup and nice booth graphics. You will need to organise your own travel and accommodation for the event. At least one person from your team will need to be present at the show for each game over the four days of the expo.

If you think your game has what it takes, and the time is right for the world to see and play with your creation, send us an application that includes all of the requirements below. The closing date is Friday 8th August and the winners will be notified by Monday 18th August.

Good luck and see you at EGX.
