Summer Games Fest 2024 boasted a platform for smaller developers lets see how they performed alongside the major titles that featured in the event. Although indie titles featured heavily in SGF press coverage for the bigger titles still dominated.
With the Xbox Games Showcase happening on the Sunday, how did that impact the online presence and reach of those titles at SGF? Did the products featured in this show further drown out coverage of the indie titles from SGF? There were some areas in which a couple of the the smaller titles held their own. For example, although Mars First Logistics saw a lower count of articles than the major titles, all 100% of it's coverage was of positive sentiment. Another indie title, Killer Bean saw a strong performance on YouTube with around 11 million views, beating some of the bigger brands such as Civilisation VII.
