Announcing the winners of Indie Cup Ukraine’22

Well, and there we have it — after two months of the most excruciating voting Indie Cup has ever seen, puncuated by constant blackouts & air raids, the jury (and the public) selected the best upcoming indie games from Ukraine. And they are great!

The winners were chosen from 60 upcoming indie games currently being made by Ukrainian independent developers. We urge you to explore all festival submissions — although there are just four winners, many more games were just as exciting.

We are enormously proud to have hosted these games at Indie Cup. For everyone who knows that our team is located in Ukraine, you might imagine how important this edition of the festival was for us! We hope you had as much fun exploring the burgeoning indie games scene of Ukraine just as much as we had putting the festival together.

As we’re closing the season, w’ed like to take a second for another quick shout-out to our friends at Remedy Entertainment, who were the festival sponsors this time around, and to the teams at 24Play, Hyper Games Conference, Lepka Games, Moonmana and Vostok Games for supporting our fundraising.

Thank you for joining us. See you in 2023!
