TheGameForIndieGames

In a time when game developers struggle to get their creations to consumers, it takes something bigger than just a game to change the rules.

GAME ON

As gamers, we understand the passion and dedication of indie game developers as well as the financial and marketing challenges they face.

Pangea Cup is the world’s first indie game competition and show designed to find and nurture extraordinary, undiscovered talent, as they compete for $1 million worth of prizes.

This global program provides capital, professional services and marketing resources in support of the indie game community.

YOUR JOURNEY AWAITS

Pangea Cup is more than just a competition. It provides audiences with an inside look into game development while accelerating the creative and business process for independent developers.

Here’s how:

Discover

Gamers can find new titles and support indie developers by buying, liking and sharing their favorites with followers and friends. They can learn more about the games, their developers, art and story, as well as read the latest game reviews and view short-form original content.

Showcase

Indie developers can market and promote their titles to the most diverse gamer community in the world. The competition will elevate the next generation of games, giving their creators the opportunity to receive valuable feedback and the ability to reach audiences worldwide.

Advisory

Pangea Cup supports indie developers with the marketing and distribution of the title as well as the management of IP and emerging talent.

Marketing

We will develop the community in partnership with some of the industry’s most innovative technology and media companies and align the best titles with leading esports teams, streamers and game publishers.

REACH THE WORLD

“There are more than 15 million undiscovered game developers across the globe. Innovative, mind-blowing virtual worlds that can touch billions and become blockbusters, go unnoticed.”

David Falk

ABOUT US

We love indie game creators because they are gamers just like us. Their challenges and successes are our own. Their stories are our stories. When we play their games, we become part of their journey – and understand the time and energy it took to get to our screen.

Pangea Cup was created to help these developers convert their dreams into careers and their passion projects into commercial stardom.

Together, with an all-star team of judges, mentors, and superfans drawn from the gaming universe, Pangea Cup will showcase their work to millions of gamers who are hungry for new voices and experiences.

Building a game takes courage and determination. Pangea Cup supports and celebrates the individuals who make that leap into the unknown, and most importantly, helps them level up.

Welcome to Pangea Cup – It’s time to play.
