It’s that time of the year again: the magical time during which developers rush to submit their game to this year’s Indie Game Festival (IGF)! So many indie games, lots of winners (eventually) too, and lots of celebrations at Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2022.
Don’t ya just love having an entire festival dedicated to indie games? I mean, this one has been running for several decades, so surely someone out there does at least, and I for one am mighty thankful for that! Yes, decades, and wow, that’s actually a really long time. As usual, a lot of developers are likely going to end up competing, and there are a lot of categories to compete in, but still. Lots of money up for grabs, lots of games to shine that bright spotlight on – basically, lots of… well, good stuff.
The Independent Games Festival is the longest-running and highest profile independent video game festival, summit and showcase.
Make sure you get that project submitted in time. Just in case, I’ve listed important dates/deadlines below. For more details (and to confirm I didn’t get anything wrong), head on over to the announcement post.
