Are you tired of all the video game presentations and events that mainly focus on AAA titles from major publishers? You’re not alone, which is why the Triple-i Initiative has been announced as a brand-new showcase for indie developers. The first showcase takes place on April 10 at 10:00am Pacific (1:00pm Eastern) and will feature 45 minutes of announcements and reveals from over 30 games. Studios and publishers making an appearance include Mega Crit, Red Hook Studios, and Evil Empire.

The Triple-i Initiative began as an idea a couple of months ago by Evil Empire, the studio behind the past five years of Dead Cells content. Now, the showcase has evolved into a collaborative effort with support from the creators of Terraria, Re-Logic, and Mega Crit, the developers behind Slay the Spire. The Initiative is supported by other studios, including Poncle (Vampire Survivors), Stunlock Studios (V Rising), Thunder Lotus (Spiritfarer), Ghostship Games (Deep Rock Galactic), Extremely OK Games (Celeste), Heart Machine (Hyper Light Drifter), and more.

“We felt a need for a showcase that highlights wildly different indie games but that have one
thing in common; they resonate with millions of players around the world. Since using letters
seems to be the trend in the industry, we figured that adding a couple of i’s [sic] to indie was a fair
way to describe this new format. Also, triple-i just sounds cool.”

Bérenger Dupré, Evil Empire’s Marketing Director.
