Welcome to the 2021 GWB Game Awards. Our mission is to find, support and celebrate the best new and unreleased indie games, with a very special prize pool that gives developers exactly what they need. If you have a title that was released in the latter half of 2020 or is still in development right now, you are eligible to take part.
Sign up online, submit a demo or game build, some pictures and information and...that's it – no attendance necessary, no cost, no time commitment.
The Intel GameDev Boost team are proud to not only offer hardware for every winning team, but also sponsor an awards category. GWB suggests you submit for certification testing with the Runs Great on Intel Technology tools to verify compatibility and make sure your game runs the best that it can.
Tencent Cloud are proud to be part of the GWB Game Awards to help us pick the Best Multiplayer game and have offered a special prize just for this category. Learn more about how Tencent Cloud can help your game.
