Judges will look into games which received an overwhelmingly positive response from a certain group of players, but were not that popular among critics/media and influencers.

Judges will be looking for the best game of 2022 developed and published solely by “one person team”.Solo developers are allowed to use any external help on QA, music and use of stock art.
