The winning teams of Bit1 2021 were announced by the jury Juha Huhtakallio (Playstack Finland), Jasmin Dahncke (Mainframe Industries), Eevi Korhonen (Housemarque) and Taina Myöhänen (We In Games Finland).
The jury emphasised how good quality each of the game was. The decision wasn’t easy and it gets harder every year. The games represent various genres and all have great aspects to them. Each game is filled with so much potential and it’s noticeable how much effort and research is put into them.
