About

Mission / Vision

It is our mission to make sure that everyone truly passionate about game development has a chance at becoming a self supporting game developer. This starts small in Groningen, the Netherlands, but we aim high so we can find how far we can go.

It is our vision that at one point the world sports multiple Indietopias: Indietopia Hamburg, Indietopia Tokyo, Indietopia New York etc. We will strive to make any Indietopia the place where Game Developers easily share knowledge, learn from each other and inspire each other. A place where customers know they always get the Serious Game that they want. A place where aspiring game developers know they at least have a fair shot at earning their money with game development.
