Google announces finalists for the 2017 Indie Games Fest


After opening up submissions for the 2017 Indie Games Fest in July, Google has today announced the finalists.

There are 20 finalists in total vying for the top prizes on offer with three winners to be announced at an event in San Francisco on September 23rd. The judging panel include Googlers, as well as YouTube Creator Alex the Gamerette, Co-founder & CEO of Nix Hydra, Lina Chen, Emily Greer, the CEO of Kongregate and Dean Takahashi, Lead Writer for GamesBeat.

Games in the Indie Games Fest are from US and Canadian developers. Unfortunately Google has not announced any Australian Indie Games festivals, but we can hope for the future.

We’ll be checking in on September 23rd to find out the winners, but you can check out most of the games in the running here:

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
