2016 Independent Games Festival opens call for submissions
Submissions are now officially open for the 2016 Independent Games Festival, the signature competition for indie games, to be held for its 18th year during GDC 2016 in San Francisco next March. This directly follows a record-breaking year which saw nearly 1,000 entries for the 2015 event, including top prizewinners like Outer Wilds, Metamorphabet and 80 Days.
We're announcing a change in leadership for the IGF this year, as current Chairperson Brandon Boyer says farewell to concentrate on a new venture (more from him here!) and Indie MEGABOOTH founder Kelly Wallick steps in as the new Chairperson of the IGF.
