Thank you for your interest in being a part of our Indie Game Developers Alley at Setsucon 2022. Please take the time to read our policies below before submitting your application. If you have any questions, please contact the Game Room Coordinator.

Indie Game Developer Applications will be open from December 5th, 2021 until January 2nd, 2022. Accepted applicants for the Indie Game Developers Alley will not need to purchase a separate convention badge, as that is included in the registration. You will be contacted by the Game Room Coordinator informing you whether or not you have been awarded a spot in our Indie Game Developers Alley on January 7th, 2022. As we have limited space, we cannot accept all applicants. Tables in our Indie Game Developers Alley will be presented to accepted applicants free-of-charge.

Indie Game Developer Policies

All registered Indie Game Developers agree to abide by the following:

  • The Primary Contact must be at least 18 years of age as of January 28, 2022.
    • Other developers who accompany the Primary Contact may be 13 years of age or older if accompanied by an adult (18 years of age or older).
  • Developers must abide by all state and federal laws, especially concerning copyright laws and restricted sales of unsafe or inappropriate products to minors.
  • All Developers will accept full responsibility for the collection of any state, local, and federal taxes. All developers must receive the proper forms from the Pennsylvania State Sales Office before the convention and will be responsible for returning them in the proper fashion (this is not required if no sales are to be made at the booth).
  • Developers must abide by all convention policies.
  • Displays may be no more than 8ft high from the floor.
  • Developers must contain their display to their assigned area.
  • All boxes, packaging materials, etc. must be stored beneath display tables or removed from the premises prior to the opening of the Game Room.
  • Will not hold any giveaways, raffles, or games of chance.
  • Will not sell or give away any food, snacks, beverages, or items of the sort.
  • Developers will be fully responsible for their own properties at all times.
  • Developers will not hold Setsucon or the Blair County Convention Center liable for any injuries, damages, losses, or thefts to either the Developer or the Developer’s property in any way.
  • Setsucon will not cover any costs of travel or lodging.
  • Be respectful to Setsucon staff, Blair County Convention Center staff, Setsucon attendees, and your fellow Developers.
  • Will not showcase any content that is rated or deemed 18+ material. We are a family friendly convention and all games showcased must keep that in mind. Any material that contains nudity, is extremely or graphically violet, or is otherwise unsuitable for minors (anyone below the age of 18) is prohibited.

Any violation will come with a warning, at which time you will be asked to fix the offense. Failure to comply or a subsequent violation is cause for removal from the convention.

Taxes and Licenses

Setsucon is not responsible for obtaining any licenses or permits required by local, state, and federal law for any Developers within the Alley. More information on the taxes and licenses required by Pennsylvania law can be found at https://www.pa100.state.pa.us/.

Be a Good Neighbor

Though it is not a constant problem, being in a shared space can lead to Developers overstepping the limits of the booth space they have available for the convention. We do understand that more space means more traffic to your booth, however, encroaching on someone else’s space or on the general Game Room area can be both annoying and possibly dangerous. It is out of respect for everyone’s happiness and safety that we ask you to take consideration when coordinating your designated space in the Game Room. To eliminate conflict, keep in mind that you and your neighbors share a limited area. This means that your personal effects should not impede your neighbor’s ability to sit, get in and out of, or move about their space during the course of the convention. Displays should be of a manageable size and utilize your space as efficiently as possible. If you have any surplus items or boxes, we also ask that you do NOT block any exits or fire exits in the case of an emergency. Remember too, that displays shouldn’t extend into the walking paths of attendees, as the room has heavy foot traffic.
