IGF competition now open

$50,000 and fame on offer for the most impressive indie talent

Publish date:

Independent Games Festival’s annual indie game competition has opened, event organiser Think Services has announced. 

Aspiring indie talent can submit their games today, with a deadline set for November. Entrants will have to wait until Jan 4, 2010, to find out if their project has made the finals.

A few months later at the 2010 Independent Games Festival – part of the Game Developers Conference – finalist pieces will be available in playable form on the GDC show floor, a couple of days before the ultimate winner is announced at the IGF awards ceremony.

Around $50,000 in prizes is available for finalists, as well as the prestige of winning at Think Services’ progressively prominent indie games competition.

IGF winners have included the likes of music-racer Audiosurf, 2D Boy’s World of Goo and PSN title Everyday Shooter.
