Google reveals winners of first annual Play Store Indie Games Festival

Google has revealed the winners of its first annual Indie Games Festival, listing the contest’s seven finalists and top three champions.

The contest’s three winners were Orbit – Playing with Gravity, a puzzle title that’s a gravity simulator; Numbo Jumbo, a puzzler full of math; and Bit Bit Blocks, another puzzle game that features cute graphics and multiplayer functionality.

Runners up include Parallyzed, an atmospheric platformer that features an enchanting dreamscape; Normans Night In: The Cave, a 2D puzzler; Armajet, a multiplayer jetpack shooting title; and finally, Antihero, a strategy game set in a city. Of all these titles, only Parallyzed is currently available, with all other finalists set to be released in the final quarter of 2016.


According to Google, games were judged by a panel of industry experts based on categories like visual and audio aesthetics, as well as creative gameplay design. Canadian-developed game Maruta 279, made by Vancouver-based Busan Sanai Games, unfortunately did not come home with a trophy.
