Event Highlights

DevGAMM Game Fest 2022 took place on November 23-25, and it was the first-ever online festival from our team dedicated entirely to games and developers.

242 games from 43 countries were submitted to DevGAMM Game Fest, which is a smashing record number for our events!

Game Fest was sponsored by Archibaldi, a creative studio specializing in original music, sound design, and voice-over for video games.


During the three stages of the voting process, more than 50 professionals evaluated game titles of various genres and chose 22 nominees from 17 countries. The $20,000 prize pool brought by Xsolla and tinyBuild was split among the winners in 8 categories.

Also, this edition of the Awards featured five special nominations from the sponsor companies: Unreal Engine, Nvidia, Ravenage, Versus Evil, and Gameowdio.

On November 25, the winners were announced at the exciting ceremony featuring Ilari Kuittinen (Housemarque), Fawzi Mesmar, Chelsea Blasko (Iron Galaxy), Daniel Mullins (Daniel Mullins Games), Anne-Sophie Mongeau (Eidos Montreal), and other game industry celebrities.

The winner of the Grand Prize is The Wandering Village by Stray Fawn Studio, and Lost in Play by Happy Juice Games is the Best Indie Game.


During three festival days, online streamers were playing 176 games on Twitch and having the time of their lives! Altogether, the incredible ten bloggers scored 80+ hours of gameplay!
