Best Games: Indie Prize Winners at Casual Connect

If you are not familiar with the Indie Prize, it’s an award ceremony specifically for indie gaming developers. It takes place at every Casual Connect event and it is one of the most exciting parts of the show in my opinion. The way it works is that Indie games are being hand picked by the Casual Connect team and specifically by Yulia Vakhrusheva, the Indie Prize Director. Those selected, are participating in the Indie Showcase, which includes over 100 games and from that point, the panel of judges decides the winners in different categories.

SOOMLA is a big supporter of all things indie and this year we were very excited to help out with the event both as mentors and volunteers. We have seen a lot of really good games in the showcase so the judges’ work was not easy – you can be sure.

And now, to the most exciting part. The winners for their category of mobile games.
