Taking the crown for best indie game for 2021 was 7 billion humans, followed in second by Single bird, a game that challenges you to become friends with “the loneliest bird in the world” and the third in Donut County. Donut County is super fun. Developed by Annapurna Interactive, you play as a growing hole in a physics-based puzzle game.

However, it wasn’t just the games rated by Google. The big winner for the best user-chosen app for 2021 was Wix Owner: Website Builder. Libra was the # 1 all-time app spotter (OK, maybe just from Google Play in 2021).

Google says Libra encourages people to “find their center through personalized meditations.”
