The Winners

The jurying has ended

Indie Cup jury has selected the best entries in the Official Selection over two voting rounds.

  1. During Round I, the jury evaluated the entries by the submitted gameplay videos. If the video caught the juror’s attention, they shortlisted the entry. Entries shortlisted the most became the finalists in their categories.
  2. During Round II, the jury played the games that qualified for the round. Each game received a score on a ten-point scale. The game with the best score became the winner in its nomination.

Games participating in the Special Competition contest have been subject to rules and criteria established by the companies running their own nominations.
