Welcome home, Indies! If you have landed here then I bet you're wondering, “What is Indienomicon?” Consider us your support group for your obsession with all things games. But, to be more specific, Indienomicon is a non-profit professional association that supports the game development community in every way imaginable with even more unicorns!

Indienomicon began as an global game showcase and has grown into an organization that has facilitated...the development of 100+ games, the founding of 30+ indie studios, and the organization of countless events that have brought together +5000 of gamers, game studios, and fans. We exist as a launch pad for the growth of the games industry. Being an indie is hard. We are on a mission to support the creativity, passion, and productivity of all people that are involved in or interested in joining the games industry.

Our mission is simple: WELCOME and bring together pros, enthusiasts and aspiring prosthrough events that inspire communication, collaboration, and creativity; PROMOTE indie games through events, conferences, and communication channels; CONNECT indies, aspiring indies, parallel industries and organizations; and GROW the industry through strategic partnerships and economic development projects that ensure indie games thrive. Our four-pillar approach is how we ensure the continued growth and success of the the indies and indie games that we love so much.

The Indienomicon volunteer army is here to empower YOU, the Indie. This year is a BIG year with new events, new initiatives and new games. If you are inspired by anything you read here or at our website indienomicon.com, please contact us at [email protected] and get involved today as we grow this year and every future year going forward.


Our growing community includes professional game developers, students, hobbyists, and those who enjoy playing video games. We hold meetups every month to gather and see new games being created in the area. These meetups are free to attend and open to the public. Check out Facebook.com or Meetup.com for your local community. We need your support to keep improving the experience at our monthly Meetups as well as creating new and exciting ways to interact with the local gaming community.




Indie Galactic Space Jam is an event in which individuals come together in a physical environment and attempt to rapidly prototype a game (video or otherwise) focused on some element of space in a limited amount of time, a “space-y” game jam.

Each year we also host a special nite of talks filled with an amazing crop of speakers from both the Space and Video Game industry.

You can take part in a team or stay a lone (space) wolf charting a course to fun and excitement. On top of that, we will be having our first Development Series that week as well. So it will be a week filled with education and development 



This year will mark the 6th iteration of the Orlando Game Global Jam. We are a part of the massively successful Global Game Jam, which has now grown to 93 countries, 630+ locations & 30,000+ developers from around the world all building games over a single weekend. This is an opportunity to build with our talented peers here in Orlando where you can be part of a team, (or a lone wolf), charting a course to fun and excitement.

Orlando as a community has always been a big part of the GGJ. Just in 2016, we ranked as the sixth largest meetup for the event. Only groups larger than us were entire countries. We had over 100+ participants attended this past January at the D.A.V.E School.



From the dawn of time sports & games have brought together the human race. In celebration of the excitement and camaraderie of sports, Indienomicon presents the “VS Sports Jam”. A game jam like no other where competition, sportsmanship, creativity and lots of caffeinated sports drinks combine to make the Ultimate indie action sports jam.
Making indie games is no cake walk. Consider the following (Thanks Bill), Scoping, pre-production, prototyping, testing, optimizing, and delivering gold, and so many other parts to a game, it would take a genius to know it all. Luckily Indienomicons’ got your back... 


MeGaHealthJam is an event in which individuals come together in a physical environment and attempt to rapidly prototype a technology, software, app or game (video or otherwise) focused on some element of healthcare in a limited amount of time; a “healthy” hackathon: She was on the team that made that awesome technology I love at the MeGa Health Jam! Providing fun challenges, amazing resources and a great opportunity for talent exposure. This is your chance to build something extraordinary with talented peers from all over Central Florida. Become part of a team or stay a lone wolf.


The automotive industry is quickly changing and adapting to new business models and relationships with consumers. Its no longer enough to sell a car and hope that's good enough until consumers decide to buy their next one. Now its all about the design of mobility as whole for how various types of people from kids, students, business professionals and grandparents get from point a to b. For all the innovation our world needs in the coming new age of automotive industry, both car & game industry developers are going to use gaming technology to prototype and simulate new ways of how we live, work and play with cars.


Come with us to a land of pure imagination where how we play, relax, and learn is like nothing the world has seen before. Immersive technologies like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality will be the new way we all interface with each other. Gaming technologies have all moved toward these new tools and platforms in the past few years so join us for our first Immersive technology focused game jam!

The way the world plays is always in demand and on display in places like Orlando. With an ever changing landscape, we're launching the first ever amusement innovation event, where the next level of ideas for our theme parks and entertainment centers can be prototypes and envisioned to one day be how the world plays and makes memories.



Growing the outreach is important to the new mission. The Replaycast will be the platform the community can listen to for a source of content for games development, sci-fi, nerdy, etc... This podcast will be a collection of news, interviews, discussions, funny segments, reviews, debates, among other things. We will have content that talks all the major convention and shows including GDC, E3, among others. So join and be connected!

The Development Series is a crash course in game development put on by the best and brightest in the industry. From production, to art, to learning the ins and outs of game engines this series has something to offer everyone of all levels of expertise. Our goal is to advance our community through fun and most importantly education. The series will consist of panels, workshops, and talks in a variety of disciplines. As interactive technologies become the norm, and immersive experiences begin to rise as common practice, game development community will increasingly find a variety of opportunity out of their traditional industry practices.

Eat, drink, and be merry by celebrating the holiday season and ending the another wonderful year of games from the Indienomicon community. Visit all of the Indiebash booths to meet all your favorite developers, play their latest games and enjoy a variety of fun events from dunk tanks, pie throwing and eating challenges.


Come and kick it with all of your gamer, dev and simulation friends with a night out on the town. Every month we get together at the Orlando Game Space and walk into Downtown Orlando visiting 3 local bars and restaurants to play trivia, enjoy exclusive drink specials and hang out. This event is all about great conversation and creating great friendships.



Who is the best video game player of them all?! Is it you? Prove it by entering our epic indie e-Sports battle featuring a variety of both local indie and mainstream gaming titles. The winners get an exclusive trophy and undying jealousy from all those that were defeated.
Every April we celebrate Indienomicon's anniversary. We started this journey to create a community and home for our game developers and help promote their awesomeness to the world. Each year we highlight our growth and we can't wait to celebrate 6 amazing with you all.


Every year we look to you to vote for the games and developers that you love and make you go wow. Join us at Indieversary and honor all the nominees and winners at our annual Indie Awards show.
