INDIGO started in 2010 as a showcase for Dutch games, organized by Dutch Game Garden. The INDIGO showcase gave Dutch games more visibility to players, press, and the industry. Often, INDIGO was the place where new games were showcased for the first time. In the following years, INDIGO rapidly grew in size. The showcase took place at the city hall of Utrecht in 2012 and 2013, and moved to Tivoli Vredenburg, which hosted the event between 2014-2016. Smaller ‘Roadshows’ were organized at other events like Firstlook, DiGRA, Control Conference, Indievelopment, the Dutch YouTube Gathering, and Game in the City. In 2013, INDIGO traveled abroad, hosting international editions at Gamescom in Cologne and at the Dutch consolate during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. In 2016, international games were accepted to the large annual showcase for the first time, which contributed to the growing international character of INDIGO. The showcase started to attract more international visitors, including representatives from companies like Nintendo, Valve, PlayStation, Apple, Epic Games, Unity and more. INDIGO became an event where developers can show their games, as well as get new business opportunities. In 2018, INDIGO moved to Speys Jaarbeurs. Since 2019 INDIGO has become more business focussed. Offering meeting areas with publishers and investors.
