Welcome to Indie Cup Ukraine’22 games showcase!

In the last four weeks we have gathered 60 upcoming indie games made by Ukrainian independent developers. These are the games of war: some of them are telling war stories, some are serving as an escape hatch from it. Their code is written to the sound of air raid alerts. Their art is drawn on screens filled with news about deaths and blackouts.

All submissions are now available on the showcase page, where you can browse them by platform, status, genre or demo availability. By the way, this season is featuring 30 free demos!

In other news, the first jurying round has already begun. You can see the full list of the jurors on this page. With constant blackouts and russia's air raids, this will be the hardest jurying in our history. We plan to announce the nominees on December 8.

We also want to remind you that we continue to raise money for two important initiatives. Your donation can help us buy power stations for AFU or a truck to deliver humanitarian aid to Mykolaiv and Kherson.

We’re super thankful to everyone who are joining us this season. No matter what, we will prevail!
