indie game festival
Screenshake is the first ever indie game festival in Belgium. This unique event offers anyone who is curious an opportunity to explore one of the most revolutionary media of the 21st century: videogames. The games that are put in the spotlight are indie games, in full independent games, which distinguish themselves by innovation and a stress on personal or social aspects and themes. It can be compared to arthouse cinema.
Screenshake offers the stage to local and international talent in several ways, among others in a game expo, an art expo, workshops, live performances and talks by people from within and out of the gaming industry. There's even a Screenshake party. In february 2017 gaming collective The House of Indie organised Screenshake for the fifth time. They pay special attention to bringing a diverse and inclusive program, as well as to the work of Belgian game developers.
