Not historically an event bounding with indies, the Keighley-produced show is still not one to miss. Though it doesn’t always have a ton new for smaller titles, it does tend to make a huge splash with the few announcements it has. Last year, for example, the stage hosted the reveal of Supergiant’s sequel to Hades.
