ABOUT INDIE DAY 2018
Indie Day 2018 is going to be Eastern India’s first indie gaming event organised by the Games Initiative, Jadavpur University. It will be the inaugural event for the formation of Games Society. Soumya Mondal, a 3rd year, IT student, from Jadavpur University, is currently heading the Games Society with over 50 students from the university as members. It’ll be an event which would not only create exposure but also inspire the students to appreciate the game as an art form.
ABOUT GAMES SOCIETY
The GAMES SOCIETY is a community of extraordinary students passionate about games and studying in one of the best universities in the nation.
And here’s how Soumya explains about their club,
OUR MEMBERS ARE AS DIVERSE AS THE GAMES WE PLAY AND DEVOTED TO THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT.
That being said, although they are a casual community they have a well-organised structure to operate as an entity rather than a group of individuals.
WHERE IS IT GONNA HAPPEN?
This one of a kind convention will be taking place in Jadavpur University’s main campus on the 27th of July at OPT Hall. The event would feature a number of revolutionary and critically acclaimed indie games and the participants would be able to experience them all. Popular game developers and many notable people from the Indian gaming industry will be sharing the stage to talk about gaming in general. There will be many interactive sessions with these people where the students will get to know that gaming is not just about eSports and people can pursue a job in this industry.

Of course, what better way to kick-start a gaming event than with some gaming contests. Yeah, prizes and giveaways are to be won in these mini-games at the event to make it even more interactive and joyful.
Generally, games in India have always been undermined and misunderstood, more so the indie games industry. They, in spite of being a new and exciting way to bring out creativity, have never received their due attention. This event is all about giving the Indie genre the necessary attention and exposure it rightfully deserves.
