The Demo Corner is a great place to showcase your game, do some user testing, and get feedback. It doesn't matter if you're working for a small studio, a hobbyist or student working on a project, or veteran team testing a game in early development (in TestFlight, etc). This place is for you. IGDA Finland encourages industry experts to review the games and provide feedback to help teams grow.
