Give these indies some love from the Google Play Indie Games Festival – Effinate Games


Google Play has once again wrapped up its annual Indie Games Festival, celebrating all things indie and highlighting the passion and creativity of these smaller studios in a virtual event. The showcase also honored handpicked studios that will be privileged enough to participate in Google’s Indie Games Accelerator, where these developers will enjoy exclusive mentorship in a 10-week virtual program.

Without further ado, here are the winners Google Play Indie Games Festival 2022:
