Announcing the 2022 Canadian Indie Game Awards Nominees

This year, we are ecstatic to host the first-ever Canadian Indie Game Awards alongside the annual Canadian Game Awards. The award show is dedicated to talented indie studios and developers in Canada. We aim to shine a spotlight on the many innovative, creative, and impactful games made right here in Canada.

It’s our chance to showcase independently developed games and give them their own stage to own the conversation. As such, our CIGA selection committee has put together the list of this year’s nominations. From here, the judges will finalize the winners of each category.

In April, the winners will be announced during the Canadian Indie Game Awards, ahead of the Canadian Game Awards. Here are this year’s Canadian Indie Game Awards nominees.
