The 2013 edition of the Independent Games Festival Main Competition received a record number of submissions. 589 games are in the running for next year's prizes, versus a paltry 567 in 2012. To accommodate the massive influx of games, the Main Competition award categories will consider six finalists each, with the Nuovo Award featuring eight.
The Microsoft Studios prize first awarded this year to Super TIME Force
, which gives a winning game a guaranteed publishing deal on Microsoft platforms, will be presented again in 2013.
