UK-based entertainment company Yogscast Games and the Yogscast network today announced the first ever Tiny Teams Indie Festival.
This festival aims to shine a spotlight on games from indie micro-studios and will be broadcast live on Steam and Twitch.tv/yogscast from August 9th to 15th 2020.
The Tiny Teams festival will be hosted by Yogscast Games’ head of publishing Ben Edgar and feature developer interviews, gameplay streams and game trailers.
The Tiny Teams Festival will also celebrate a selection of classic indies with Steam Store discounts of up to 50% off through the week. It will culminate in an awards show at 5pm BST on August 15th, highlighting the most fun, weird and exciting games profiled during the week.
“At Yogscast Games we’re all about indie games that are as fun to watch as they are to play,” said Yogscast Games’ head of publishing Ben Edgar.
“With the first-ever Tiny Teams Festival we want to shine a spotlight on some fantastic games and teams that could otherwise slip under the radar in a hugely busy year of gaming. We’re looking forward to sharing some of the coolest, weirdest and most fun upcoming indies.”
Yogscast might not be esports-focused, but it is a popular gaming YouTube and Twitch channel. It has more than 7m subscribers on YouTube and almost 1m followers on Twitch.
