GameSessions powers ‘Virtual EGX’ campaign. Partnership with UK’s biggest games event to deliver indie game demos online.

Play games from this year's EGX at home for free
GameSessions, the game discovery and distribution provider, today announced a collaboration with EGX and Amazon to provide the opportunity to ‘try for free’ a selection of new and forthcoming indie games.

The campaign, powered by GameSessions and hosted on Amazon’s EGX hub, will coincide with the live EGX event taking place at the Birmingham NEC between 22nd and 25th September.

GameSessions will deliver a selection of free trials featuring new and forthcoming games from a number of publishers including:
  • Mainlining (Merge Games)
  • Shu (Coatsink)
  • Earth’s Dawn (Rising Star)
  • The Bunker (Green Man Gaming)
  • Hue (Curve Digital)
  • Congamaster (Rising Star)
  • Hopiko (Merge Games)
Some games are complete, some in early access and others in demo form but all will be available to download and play for free for a limited period as well as on the EGX show floor this week.
   
"One of the highlights of the EGX event is that it gives gamers the chance to discover some amazing indie games and play them, in some cases for the first time, at the show. Using our technology we can replicate a little piece of this experience online and, by working with EGX and Amazon, give the wider gaming community a chance to try some of the latest indie titles,’’ commented Ed French, CEO of GameSessions.
     
Rupert Loman, CEO of Gamer Network added, "We’re looking forward to welcoming 75,000 gamers at EGX this week but for those who can’t make it we’re delighted to offer a selection of the games on show for people to play free of charge. Thanks to our partnership with Amazon and GameSessions we’re able to put some brilliant indie games in front of even more gamers than ever before.”

The Amazon EGX hub link is amazon.co.uk/egx.
