2013 IndieCade Award winners revealed!

by: Jeff -
The Jury is out for the 2013 IndieCade awards. More than 850 games from all over the world were submitted, and IndieCade has announced the winners- games and developers that have turned out examples of superior game design, storytelling, aesthetics, and several other categories. This year included two new awards, the Media Choice Award, which is given to the game that most media members chose as their favorite, and The Trailblazer Award, which is given to the newcomer (relatively speaking) who has used their games in the most innovative and original ways.

If you're at all interested in game design, the art of gaming, or just love the crazy, beautiful, intellectually challenging stuff that indies are coming up with these days, you need to look through all of the games on this list. You owe it to yourself and the people who make them.
