Summer 2020 must have been very different from summer 2019. The most obvious difference in our patch is that all events that took place in physical premises are now taking place virtually, with both the Pokemon Go Fest and the Google Indie Games Festival takes place in the abstract world of ones and zeros rather than a sweaty convention center.
The change apparently didn’t hurt them, however, and there was even some positive news in the form of a $ 1 million donation to Doctors Without Borders, along with juicy tidbits of news. All in all, a good week.
Don’t forget to check out the latest new android games and sales in the companion Saturday of this article.

Google’s annual indie game festival has come to an end, under significantly more strained circumstances than last year’s event.
