Digital indie game convention LudoNarraCon returns to Steam next week

Returning to Steam for its second year, LudoNarraCon is a global digital games convention that will take place on April 24-27. The festival is designed to focus on narrative-driven games and will feature 40 exhibitions, 10+ panels from members of the industry, a Steam sale, and host 20+ playable demos all for free.

LudoNarraCon is hosted by Fellow Traveller, an indie publisher behind games including the Orwell series, Neo Cab, The Stillness of the Wind, and In Other Waters. On the event's official website, Fellow Traveller writes that LudoNarraCon "aims to create a platform to showcase and celebrate interesting and innovative narrative games."

The convention will be held entirely on Steam, with the event's main page live streaming 12 hours of panels. Steam pages will serve as virtual "game booths," where publishers will stream behind-the-scenes content, chat about their games, and showcase gameplay. 

More than 20 games will be showcased during the event, including:

Rachel had been bouncing around different gaming websites as a freelancer and staff writer for three years before settling at PC Gamer back in 2019. She mainly writes reviews, previews, and features, but on rare occasions will switch it up with news and guides. When she's not taking hundreds of screenshots of the latest indie darling, you can find her nurturing her parsnip empire in Stardew Valley and planning an axolotl uprising in Minecraft. She loves 'stop and smell the roses' games—her proudest gaming moment being the one time she kept her virtual potted plants alive for over a year.
