The Independent Games Festival, an annual indie competition held during the Game Developers Conference, received more than 1,000 entries — a record number of both student and main submissions, organizers announced today.
According to the post, nearly 350 of those entries fill the student category. Submissions include gunslinger title Westerado, Kickstarted roguelike-like Risk of Rain and Oculus Rift title Anamnesis. Other submissions hail from colleges nation-wide, including the University of Southern California, University of Ohio and University of Miami.
