The 2022 Game Development World Championship winners have been announced

The 2022 Game Development World Championship (GDWC) announced its winners last weekend.

The GDWC recognises and celebrates the exceptional talent at various levels of the industry from around the world, and this year over 3,600 games were submitted to the contest, from creative and innovative teams in 145 different countries. 

The games submitted for consideration were assessed by a panel of expert judges, and 15 overall winners were revealed to the industry and fans of video games alike at an event which was simulcast on YouTube on April 22, 2023. Several awards were given out to game developers across the multiple categories at the show, dividing up a prize pool of over $120,000, as well as development software licences and even vacations to Finland between the winners.
