    All finalists will participate in the final event that will take place at Google Campus São Paulo, where a panel of judges will choose the 3 winners. The event is free and open to the public. Interested parties can apply here.

    The jury that will analyze the games will be composed by Evelyn Vallejons, Argentine youtuber; Evelyn Vallejons, director of the Etermax studio (of the game Triviados); Moonlit Beshimov, development manager at Google Play Games; Sandro Manfredini, Business Director at Aquiris Game Studio, and Pablo Miyazawa, Editor-in-Chief of IGN Spain.

    The Festival was launched in November 2017 with the aim of identifying, showcasing and rewarding indie game talent in Latin America. “We were impressed with the innovation and creativity that independent developers in the region have to offer. Selecting just 15 finalists was a big challenge,” said Daniel Trócoli, Google Play Games Partnership Manager for Latin America.

    The three winners will receive prizes such as an Android TV and top placement for a month in the special indie games section of Google Play.
