History

Early history

Indietopia was founded on April 1st 2014 (no joke). Founder Mendel Bouman felt there was a rising need to create a hub that would bind all the developers together in the Northern Dutch region as a lack in cohesion in the North Dutch Game industry meant serious lack of business opportunities for all parties involved. Seeing how starting Indie Game Developers were struggling with becoming stable and professional studio’s he realised that this would also need to be addressed by what would eventually become Indietopia.

After that

Indietopia is thriving. After starting out with 2 companies and 5 interns, Indietiopia grew into 20 companies en 15 interns in one year. At the moment of writing this (November 12, 2015) Indietopia counts 25 game development companies. Indietopia Games, the publisher has published two games since its founding. Pulstar, a simple, yet visually and audio-wise attractive twin stick shooter has sold over 21000 units in one year. Convoy, the second title, a rogue-like, RTS, Mad Max style adventure game sold over 24000 units in 7 months.
