About Us

Hi, we are Sarah and Iv. It´s nice that you came to visit. We both grew up with Videogames and over the years developed a curiosity how they are made. This is what we want to find out with our project openindie.

It is our goal, to give independent developers / indie studios a platform to share their stories and how they overcame the challenges while developing. Do they get support from their countries?

Stay a while and listen…
