"It’s IGF time, baby-cats! This year marks the 15th annual Independent Games Festival, and the list of game entries is their biggest one yet.
Five-hundred and eighty-nine games were entered to be judged, all competing for $55,000 in prizes, not to mention all of the juicy publicity that comes with being a finalist. Game developers had between August 9th and October 17th to submit their games. Now the developers of all 589 of those games must wait until January 14 to find out if they are finalists, and of those finalists, one winner will be chosen and announced March 27th, along with the runners up." - Tom Christiansen
