About the event
The MIX AT EVO Showcase
The MIX is partnering with Evo (Evolution Championship Series) for this year’s Evo Indie Showcase.
The fighting game community (FGC) is a tight knit culture who share a lot in common with Indies. Both are interested in system design, have grassroots community backgrounds; both appreciate well-crafted game design, mechanics and both understand that games are only as fun as the people you can play with and talk to. The MIX and Evo are independent productions who strive to develop their cultures and bring people together to share amazing experiences.
Exhibiting at The Evo Showcase
Participating in the Evo Indie Showcase isn’t just about developers putting their games in front of potential players for sales, it’s also about seeing what some of the game-breakingest people in video games can do with what has been created. Fighting game fans are interested in understanding deep gameplay mechanics and finding ways to creatively use the systems to take games to another level with through mastery. Indies just might learn a thing or two about their own games — and maybe even meet a few people who can help make it better.
The Evo Championship Series represents the largest and longest-running fighting game tournaments in the world. Evo brings together the best of the best from around the world in a dazzling exhibition of skill and fun, as players and fans gather to honor the competitive spirit in an open format and determine a champion.
The tournaments are about more than just winning. Evo is open to anyone, feature stations available for relaxed free play, and offer unique opportunities to meet people from different countries and different walks of life who share your passion. Established champions face off against unknown newcomers, and new rivals that might have only talked or fought online meet up and become old friends.
The 2015 Evo Scholarship
The Evo Scholarship is a partnership between the New York University Game Center, Evo, and Twitch that gives someone from the fighting game community an opportunity to develop their skills as a game designer and innovate in the world of competitive game design through a 2 year Master’s degree or 4 year Bachelor’s degree in Game Design at the NYU Game Center.
HOW MUCH MONEY IS IT, AND HOW IS IT FUNDED?
The Evo Scholarship is a community funded scholarship, generated entirely by purchases of the Evo stream subscriptions. 100% of every purchase of the stream will go directly to the scholarship, giving fighting game players and fan an opportunity to send someone to college who would otherwise not be able to attend.
