IGF 2015 Student Competition sees record-setting number of entries

IGF1.jpgThe 17th annual Independent Games Festival -- the longest-running and largest independent games festival worldwide -- is months away, and today officials are proud to announce another year of record entries for IGF 2015's Student Competition.

This year's Student Competition, which will display finalists and show winners at Game Developers Conference 2015 in March, took in over 360 game entries across all platforms -- console, PC and mobile -- from a broad array of the world's most prestigious universities, games programs, and high schools.

Together with the Main Competition submissions, this year's IGF has taken in over 1,000 entries total -- once again surpassing the festival's record across the Main and Student Competitions.
