Quote from Failbetter Games, Winner of the IND13 Awards 2019 Best Game

Hannah Flynn, Communications Director, Failbetter Games: “Many thanks to the team at for this delightful award! We're very proud of Sunless Skies, and it's gratifying to hear that the indie-loving community are enjoying getting lost in the Heavens.”

Quote from IND13

Harry Cole, Editor, IND13: “Deciding one indie game, indie studio or indie individual to win an award is challenging and completely subjective. We use the awards to recognise the great work that we’ve seen in the past year and award key figures in the indie games community.

“This is a chance to celebrate indie games rather than say one is better than another. Congratulations to those that deservedly won an award, received a nomination and to anyone making indie games for us to be proud of.”

“This year we’ve seen games that include geese, homeless aliens and nuclear disasters, it’s great to celebrate such diversity. For me one of the most important categories is original concept, where we get to explore some of the creative innovations from studios.”
