Independent Games Festival - Top Game Developers - Best Gaming Studios
UBM Tech (producer of Gamasutra.com and the Game Developers Conference) established the Independent Games Festival in 1998 to encourage innovation in game development and to recognize the best independent game developers.
We wanted to create a similar event to Sundance for independent game developers – and that’s just what we’ve succeeded in doing with the Independent Games Festival, which has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash prizes (and brought major exposure and a much higher profile) to a multitude of indie and student game developers who have entered. There are three main elements to the Festival itself:
- The Independent Games Festival Pavilion
- The Independent Games Festival Awards
- The Independent Games Summit
