Devolver’s E3 Indie Picnic Update: Back to a Private Event :(

We regretfully inform the public that we have been denied the necessary special use permits to enable us to host the fan-badge portion of the recently-announced Devolver Indie Picnic at E3 this year.

Those with E3 industry badges and by-appointment press are still welcome to join us per our usual location, but we are sad to say that we will not be able to accommodate the fan-badges due to capacity restrictions.

The usual Devolver E3 Lot is still going strong, however, and will still host its annual games showcase in its regular location for industry and press by appointment only, along with partners and sponsors Gambitious, Indie MEGABOOTH, and Logitech, and NVIDIA.

Fans at home will still be able to participate via the Devolver Public Access livestream from the lot again with best pals at X-Split, which will be broadcasting throughout the show, bringing you an awesome showcase of independent games and some very special guests as indie creators from all over the world will be joining us.

Our disappointment runs deep that we are not able to utilize the additional space we leased specifically to be able to host the fans who bought E3 wristbands this year. Opening up more space for the public to experience a unique and memorable celebration of games was something we very much wanted to do for fans who, like us, love video games. We are saddened that we will be unable to share that with them but look forward to working on future opportunities to do so.
