The Full Indie Summit 2014 is coming up and we are excited to announce that PlayStation, Unity Technologies, Indie Fund and Vlambeer will be among the great line up of speakers presenting at the event.

Join 600 other indies on August 9th and 10th for two days of inspiring presentations, parties and networking.

Last year’s sold out conference offered great opportunities for attendees: several games went on to achieve great critical and commercial success, including making their way onto PlayStation and being featured in press conferences and at E3. We hope to see even more success stories this year, with PlayStation, Unity Technologies, and more (to be announced) available during the event to meet with you.

Finally, continuing the tradition of last year, there will also be giveaways, including a chance to win a Unity3D Pro license!

Details on some of the Summit talks coming soon! In the meantime, visit the site for additional information:, including the entire list of speakers announced so far.
