Last June, Google opened registrations for the annual event of the international version of the Indie Games Festival 2021, and during those weeks, the Google Play team received thousands of requests from independent game developers who wish to participate in this competition.
In this new opus of the Google Play Indie Games Festival 2021, he wants to reward the best independent games in Europe, Japan and South Korea, and in this first step among the thousands of participants, they have already selected the 60 finalists of the games independent this year. – 20 games per region – the nine winners will be announced next September.
Like last year, the Google Play team will reward the most creative independent games to give them more visibility in the Android application store and thus boost their downloads. Google will select three games per region through three virtual events (one per region) on September 4.
