Take your game to the next level Calling Filipino indie game developers for Google’s Indie Games Accelerator 2019
For passionate game developers who want to bring their ideas to life, Google announces the second run of Indie Games Accelerator. The program returns to enable more mobile startups to design their next big game with the help of industry experts and mentors from Google.
“Our team of program mentors had an amazing time coaching some of the best gaming talent from India, Pakistan, and Southeast Asia. We’re very encouraged by the positive feedback we received for the program and are excited to bring it back in 2019”, said Google in a blog announcement.
This year, Google expands the program to include hopeful game developers from countries* in Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. Applications for the second class of Indie Games Accelerator are now open until May 19, 2019.
As a special edition of the Launchpad Accelerator, the six-month program will feature a comprehensive gaming curriculum to fuel knowledge and inspire creativity among aspiring mobile game developers. Indie Games Accelerator will also open opportunities for participants to network with industry veterans and receive direct coaching from Google teams and gaming experts.
Filipino developers who will be able to secure a slot in the program will be flown to Google Asia-Pacific office in Singapore for two all-expenses-paid bootcamps. They will also receive Google Pixel phones, Google Cloud Platform credits, and exclusive invites to Google and industry events.
Last year, Google kicked off the first Indie Games Accelerator and gathered more than 20 indie mobile game startups from India, Pakistan, and Southeast Asia to let their ideas reach new heights. Two local developers, Mochibits LLC and Monstronauts Inc, were part of the successful inaugural batch.
