With so many great mobile games launching this year, we saw a huge amount of
interest from indie developers to showcase their art at the Google
Play Indie Games Festival in San Francisco next month. While it was a tough
selection process, we’re excited to announce the 20 finalists, as well as our
esteemed judging panel. Fans will be able to play the new and un-released indie
games in a fun festival atmosphere where they can also meet the creators
themselves. To attend and learn more about the event, register now for free at
g.co/play/sfindiegamesfest2017.

So how did we choose the 20 finalists? We powered up our phones, put our
game-faces on, and looked for games that not only met the festival requirements,
but also stood out with their overall design, fun, and quality. These are the 20
finalists who will be joining us at the festival to demo their games.
