The Indie Houses, a collective of seven indie labels, today revealed more details on what gamers can expect to see in its upcoming Indie Houses Direct showcase on August 31 (10am PDT). This hour-long online showcase will be streamed through YouTube, Twitch, and Steam (live Aug 31) and will feature major news beats from each of the publishers involved for PC, console, and mobile games, including multiple new game reveals. The broadcast will be available afterwards on-demand via YouTube. Kicking off at the same time as the Direct will be a week-long Indie Houses Steam event where gamers will be able to pick from over 100 discounted games from the labels’ catalogues, check out live broadcasts from dev teams, and enjoy over 40 playable demos.
