Unmanned, Hokra Win Big at IndieCade Awards
More than 500 games from five different countries took part in the IndieCade International Festival of Independent Games earlier this month in Culver City, Calif. Molleindustria took top honors, winning the Grand Jury Prize for Unmanned, a game that takes players through a day in the life of a drone pilot, and Ramiro Corbetta’s minimalist sports game Hokra received the Audience Choice Award.
“The IndieCade awards celebrate the unique artistic vision and talent across the spectrum of independent games. This special event serves as an important platform to support the next generation of independent games, and highlight their incredible quality,” IndieCade CEO Stephanie Barish said. “We are honored to have so many outstanding titles in this year’s show and to be able to share them with the thousands of attendees that came to the festival.”
Each year, hundreds of developers submit their games to IndieCade. Around 30 are selected to showcase at the IndieCade festival, where a jury of distinguished industry experts choose the winners in a variety of categories. This year’s jury included Kellee Santiago (co-founder and former president of Thatgamecompany), Jonathan Blow (developer of Braid) and J. Stewart Burns (producer and writer of The Simpsons and Futurama).
