Game Developers Unite: The Story of Our Demo Day

We are thrilled to announce that the first-ever Subscrible Demo Day was a huge success, exceeding all of our expectations! This groundbreaking online event provided a platform for game developers to showcase their innovative projects to a global audience of VC funds and angel investors from Europe, the United States, and Israel.

We were honored to have over 25 attendees at the event, including representatives from The Games Fund, Narwhal Accelerator, Betastage Capital, INNOVA, and DWY Investment. The energy and excitement were palpable as eight projects from various game studios and independent developers wowed the audience with their creativity and potential.

To give you a taste of the excitement, we've included a short highlight reel below that captures some of the best moments from the day:

The event was not only a showcase of talent but also a wealth of knowledge. Here are some valuable insights shared by investors to help you refine your strategy:

  • Seek the Unique: Navigate the blue ocean of opportunities. With numerous game genres saturated, your distinctiveness is key to captivating your target market.
  • Show, Don’t Tell: Videos speak louder than screenshots. A well-crafted video can illustrate your project's nuances, making it more accessible and engaging.
  • Highlight Your Strengths: Instead of focusing on what’s missing, shine a light on what’s already there—the features and strengths your game proudly boasts.
  • Balance is Vital: Adopt a 50/50 approach, dedicating equal parts of your pitch to both your game's allure and its business model.
  • Experience Counts: Emphasize your team's track record. Risk assessment in gaming is complex, but a history of overcoming challenges speaks volumes.

After the amazing response to our first Demo Day, we are thrilled to announce that our second Demo Day is set for May 28th! This next event promises to be even bigger and better, giving developers a chance to showcase their ideas and investors a chance to discover the next big gaming sensation.
