gamescom is the world’s biggest video game trade fair, held in Cologne, Germany. This year, you can cast your vote for your most anticipated “made with Unity” title in our new Indie CommUnity Choice award.
With so many great indie games making their debut at gamescom this year, it’s hard to choose just one. That’s why we’ve brought in an internal Unity jury of gamers, technical artists, and veteran devs to narrow down the list. Below are their top four picks for the indie games they can’t wait to play from this year’s gamescom Indie Arena Booth.
The ultimate winner is up to you. Head to our poll on Twitter and cast your vote. The winner will be announced on August 24 and presented their award live at gamescom.
So, which game are you most excited to play? Which game inspires you? Which game is destined for knockout success? Since most of these games are still unreleased, you’ll have to help us decide based on their trailers.
Figment 2: Creed Valley is an action-adventure game set in the human mind. Nightmares are spreading chaos and enemies have overrun once-peaceful lands. Join Dusty, The Mind’s courage, as you make your way through puzzles, musical boss fights and unique environments. Face your fears head-on.
Find inner peace in the small open-world game Aka. On its carefully handcrafted islands, you can take a nap on a giant monster, feed baby dragons, take care of the fauna and flora... but demons from your past might come back to remind you what you want to forget.
An exciting RPG, Back to the Dawn is set in a maximum-security prison populated by animals of every shape and size. Survive, explore, and escape! Along the way, you’ll interact with a motley crew of interesting and unique characters. Be strong and be smart! It's not just yourself you’re saving, it’s the whole city!
Birth is a surreal puzzle game about constructing a creature from spare bones and organs found around the city in order to quell your loneliness. Solve physics-based puzzles and discover secrets in lovingly hand-drawn museums, bakeries, bookstores, and more.
Cast your vote on Twitter for the game you’re most excited about to help crown this year's victor.
Paring down a list of over 80 made with Unity titles to just four means that several amazing games had to be left off the final list of nominees. Be sure to check out these games that just barely missed the final cut above, as well as many others at the Indie Arena Booth at gamescom 2022.
