Independent Games Festival Awards Nominations Revealed For 2022

The Independent Games Festival has revealed the set of nominees for their 2022 Awards. The award ceremony will be held this March during GDC. If the event actually happens this year and it doesn’t get canceled due to Covid-19 then we would be able to witness an exciting event.

According to the latest updates revealed by Independent Games, the event will be both in-person and virtually at San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center. The event will go on from March 21st-25th.

Several games are currently nominated for the awards. The two titles that are currently leading the pack are Inscription by Daniel Mullins Games and Unpacking by Witch Beam. These two games have a pretty good chance of sweeping the event. Here is the list of nominees for the Independent Games Festival Awards below.
