Today, at the finals of our Indie Games Festival, thousands of people came together to celebrate the passion, creativity and innovation of small games studios.

Players, jury members, and industry experts attended the event - hosted in a custom virtual world - where they discovered the finalist games and met the people who made them. They were also the first to find out who the winners are, who will receive prizes and promotions that will help them boost their visibility.

At the event we also announced the studios selected to join our Indie Games Accelerator. These companies will receive exclusive education and mentorship over a 10-week virtual program, to help them build and grow successful businesses.

Please join us in congratulating each of the winning games and studios.
