If you've been to a big gaming convention, you may have seen the Indie MEGABOOTH. Now, the organization behind this event is going into hibernation for a while — and they'll be supporting their costs through the Indie MEGABOOTH Sale.
On the off chance you're unfamiliar with the Indie MEGABOOTH, it's basically a traveling carnival of indie game developers all mashed together in one massive booth. Convention costs are expensive, so a bunch of indie game devs got together to collectively show off their wares without breaking the bank.
Unfortunately, a slew of convention cancellations due to COVID-19 means that the booth can't really do much this year; there's nowhere to showcase it. As a result, the organizers have announced that the Indie MEGABOOTH will "sunset" for the duration of the pandemic.
Mind, this doesn't mean that this organization is gone for good. Their entire purpose is showcasing products in a physical space and that just can't happen right now. The founder says that she'll be keeping the mailing list and social media channels relatively active to restore the event to its full glory as soon as they're able.
For now, though, the organization's focus will be on the Indie MEGABOOTH sale. This event is going to showcase some great indie creators while also putting a few bucks into the piggy bank for future events.
When is the Indie MEGABOOTH Sale?
Now that we know the Indie MEGABOOTH is going away for a while, when will they host their sale?
According to a subsequent announcement, the IMB will be hosting a sale on Steam from May 5–12, 2020. The sale will feature over 100 games, mainly featuring a mix of old and new titles that appeared at one of the organization's booths.
